Reshaping Project & Program Management
Xaana is built on our deep expertise in project and program management. We provide advice in risk management, benefits realisation, scheduling and business case development, and enhanced organisational capability.
We manage global projects
Project and program management practice is embedded into the technical services within Xaana. Our staff deliver to clients at a range of levels – from project administrators and coordinators, schedulers, junior project managers, and senior project managers - through to experienced program managers.
Our skilled project and program management practitioners have experience setting-up projects/programs for success, managing day-to-day project/program delivery, intervening to improve the likelihood of success for at-risk initiatives, and evaluating post-implementation benefits and outcomes.
Project and Program Assurance
As project and program assurance professionals, we are experts at conducting independent assessments of projects/programs, including Gateway Reviews and P3M3® maturity assessments. Our accredited Gateway Reviewers have a strong reputation in Canberra for their frank and forthright assessments of high risk/complexity/value initiatives.
Project and Program Delivery
Our program and project managers, coordinators and schedulers have a proven track record for delivering projects and programs to the required scope and quality, within tight time and budget constraints. We are experts at rigorously applying best practice to all aspects of project/program planning, delivery and evaluation.
We successfully integrate all our Company capability to deliver successful projects and programs. Drawing on the expertise of our business analysts and management consultants in our Strategy and Business Improvement Practice, we ensure that business and technical requirements are well understood and documented. We also draw on the skills and experience of experts in our Enterprise Architecture & Technology Practice to provide essential enterprise and solution architecture guidance and input to our projects and programs.
Our Capability Development Practice experts add additional expertise to our integrated project and program teams, ensuring that aspects such as integrated logistics and engineering discipline are incorporated in planning and delivery elements for our major capability clients such as the Department of Defence and the Department of Home Affairs.
Our team has qualifications in PRINCE2®, PMBOK®, PMP®, P3O®, P3M3®, PRINCE2 Agile® and MSP®.
