Through our Program Management solution, customers will have a team dedicated to controlling the cost, schedule and performance of a project or group of projects to achieve business and financial objectives. DBP's program management analysis and support includes (but not limited to) the development of Business Capabilities Life-Cycle acquisition documentation (Concept of Operations (CONOPS), Business Case (BC), Program Management Plans (PMP), etc.
The vast experience of the DBP team provides customers with a keen eye that can effortlessly navigate budget constraints and scrutiny by managing the business aspects that often cause unnecessary expenditures, delays or poor performance. Our team implements the best practices (PMBOK, CMMI, ITIL, etc.) in a proven, systematic fashion, accomplishing client goals in a timely and efficient manner.
A key part of our Program Management services is to come up with a Project/Program Management Plan (PMP), according to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®), which will become a formal, approved document used to guide both project execution and project control. The primary uses of the PMP are to document planning assumptions and decisions, facilitate communication among stakeholders, and document approved scope, cost, and schedule baselines. By showing the major products, milestones, activities and resources required on the project, it is also a statement of how and when a project's objectives are to be achieved. The project manager creates the PMP following input from the project team and key stakeholders. The plan should be agreed upon and approved by at least the project team and its key stakeholders. The PMP is mandatory for all projects. Though it is a project-level document, it should be updated as necessary, including for each increment.
This PMP will describe the project management processes that will follow during execution of the project. The project’s processes will align with plans and processes of the Project Management Accountability System (PMAS) Guide. New processes will be defined for any management areas not covered by the PMAS Guide. This PMP will govern the management practices across the life of the project. As those practices evolve, this document will be updated to reflect the changes.
