Project leadership is the linchpin to a successful outcome after a lengthy execution and significant investment. EDGE welcomes an opportunity to discuss our Media Project Managers and their recent work.
Comprehensive Project Plans
EDGE Project Managers drill down Strategic Project Plans into detailed agendas. These agendas identify goals, activities, resources and deliverables for every project phase from initial functional requirements gathering through post-implementation support. EDGE Project Plans catalogue every anticipated development, thereby leading to predictable outcomes. However, the plans remain flexible enough for adjustments as project events warrant. We will offer case studies relevant to your project.
Media Technology Blueprints
Media technologies that are being upgraded or expanded are often dependent on applications in a technology ecosystem and workflow. EDGE Project Managers and IT/IS Experts are experienced in a wide variety of media technology environments and know how to optimize integrations and streamline data/file exchanges. We can map your optimal technology environment if you suspect your current platform is not in its most cost-efficient state.
Requests For Proposals (RFPs)
Turning a request for information (RFI) into a decision-making request for proposal (RFP) takes experience and finesse. The due diligence performed on providers and their solutions must result in all ‘fits’ being properly valued and all ‘gaps’ closed or minimized. Within the media industry, EDGE has pioneered a unique method for elevating decision-making criteria from the exhaustive amount of captured data. Clients and vendors have praised this methodology. Allow us to explain what we do to cut through the clutter.
User & Data Migration Plans
Effective change management hinges on two separate migrations during a project: one for key data and the other for key users of the new or updated technology. Data migrated from one platform to another must be expertly mapped for accuracy and usability. This mapping needs to be performed at a cost which is reasonable relative to the value of the data. Users should transition to the new technology confidently and efficiently, necessitating that User Acceptance Testing and Training be completed before the new technology is in production.
EDGE can refer you to specific projects on which we molded providers’ proposed plans to best fit clients’ workflows and resources.
