Digital Project Management is essentially IT project management for the digital space. It has evolved from a gap in the market, and from observations by DigitalPM consultants that there is a need for specialised project management skills related to digital projects. Typical Digital Projects include Online Marketing campaigns (SEO, PPC), customised website design and development, E-commerce development and integration, application and software development.
Given the speed of growth in the digital space, traditional project management has not kept pace with the unique challenges and nuances of digital projects and as a result there is a gap in knowledge / process between current methodologies and the digital environment. Software development agencies have increasingly been asked to manage complex scoping and development activities – often with multiple vendors involved – whilst managing a range of stakeholder expectations.
As a result there is a need for specialised governance to sit over the top of an organisation’s digital project to provide the link between vendors / development agencies and key organisation stakeholders. External Digital Project Management allows your organisation to have a governance layer on digital projects to provide impartial advise, and ensure appropriate accountability and delivery for both internal clients and vendors.
Increasingly our Digital Project Management consultants have been requested to engage in Project Rescue for organisations that have undertaken digital projects, and encountered problems with vendors or third parties contracted to execute these projects.
DigitalPM has extensive experience in managing Digital Projects, and our consultants have a consistent track record in successfully delivering complex digital projects for a varied client base from a wide range of industries.
