Project Success: Superior Results – “In scope, on time and budget”
Critical to the successful execution of any IT project is a disciplined approach
coupled with experience within the relevant technology. At Acxius, our methodology
includes IPECC (Initiate, Plan, Execute, Control and Close at its core and a keen
ability to understand the unique risks associated with the complexities of technology
projects. Significant thought leadership further distinguishes the Acxius approach

To manage the full life cycle of a project it is essential to have a system in place
that holds it all together. This framework begins with executive buy-in and continues
through capturing lessons learned for future endeavors. From a high-level, these
procedures can be grouped into three project management functions:
- Project Definition lays out the foundation for a project. During this phase Acxius
will work with you to define the project charter, responsibility matrix, scope and
other necessary components. Important questions like, “Why are we doing this? and
“How will success be measured?” are asked and answered during this stage.
- Project planning identifies in detail how the projects goals will be achieved given
the known constraints. Acxius brings decades of experience in the data, information
and performance management space to bare during this stage. Our principals average
over 15 years of experience in helping Fortune 100 companies with scheduling, budgeting
and resource planning.
- Project control includes all of the activities to keep the project on time and within
budget. At Acxius, we believe in measuring progress frequently - thereby identifying
problems early. Early identification makes most problems easier to solve. We put
a tremendous amount of rigor into our Issue Management process which culminates
in a proactive communication approach.
Today most IT projects go through a wide variety of issues related to scope, cost,
resources, process, timeframe, etc. Most organizations have projects which are delayed
or exceed the allocated budget, thus impacting the organizational objectives. The
biggest challenge is the alignment between organizational Project Management Practice
and the nature of the projects related to Data, Information and Business Performance.
It is imperative that the various elements involved in the execution of a project
be monitored and evaluated consistently so as to ensure the ultimate realization
of the company’s objectives.
Thought leadership, meticulous planning and an unwavering commitment to results.
