How an MSP Can Aid in IT Project Management

It’s always an exciting time when you commit to a new IT project that promises to change your organization for the better. Of course, the exciting stuff is what comes after the implementation process—a process that can range from easy-as-pie to incredibly complex and stressful, depending on the expertise your organization employs.

Today, we want to explore what goes into IT project management and, in particular, what you need to know if you are opting to utilize a managed service provider like White Mountain IT Services… which you should, by the way!

Understand What Goes Into an IT Project Timeline

The lifecycle of an IT project timeline involves planning, implementing, and monitoring the various tasks associated with the IT project. This is all done to ensure that they fall within the scope, time, and budget constraints you have set for them. During the planning phase, your business might examine the project’s goals, scope, and the responsibilities of the involved parties. This is also when the plans are further refined to include tasks, timelines, resource requirements, and so on. Then, it comes time to implement the project, which requires careful consideration and coordination of available resources. Finally, there is the monitoring phase, which happens in real-time as you navigate implementation and project review to determine what needs to be adjusted or what remains to be done.
