Services

Fundamentally we provide:

(1) Project Management Services

ThoughtWare staff and consultants bring years of experience and a rational, productive approach to project management of medium to large IT projects and implementations.

We offer not only project management services but also project management coaching (outlined below).

The top 3 benefits to be gained by utilizing ThoughtWare consultants are:

  1. Reduces time and cost because the tools and processes that form part of our methodology have already been created and a clear lifecycle for initiating planning, executing and closing projects has already been identified
  2. Reduces the impact of risks, issues and changes because there is a clear process for identifying, quantifying, approving and resolving them
  3. Enhances the likelihood of success through the use of a standard, best practice, tried and proven project management methodology

We take pride in what we do — our values are consistently applied as we utilise our skills, tools and processes to deliver you measurable results.

From developing quantifiable realisable Business Cases to powerful Lessons Learned we are experienced across the spectrum — we can cover:

  • Business Case

Coaching
A coach acts as a sounding board, a mentor, a motivator, and a gentle taskmaster who keeps you on track. Coaches do not act as expert consultants, but as guides and resource providers. We teach you to do it well, we don’t do it for you.Coaching may be the alternative to classroom training for you if you want to:

  • Determine the success criteria to be achieved by the project’s outcome
  • Develop a Work Breakdown Structure with associated specifications
  • Create a schedule with activities, durations, and interdependencies
  • Delineate, assign and accumulate resources and costs to the project
  • Identify, assess, and plan for the mitigation of the project’s risks
  • Understand basic contracts and their ramifications
  • Identify the important project metrics to be captured, measured and analysed

If you are looking for a deeper evaluation of your values, goals and how to achieve them, as well as practical principles of living and working, philosophical coaching is also available.

Why ThoughtWare?

There is no one better to provide coaching than those who have actually done the job and know first hand the realities of project management. We coach based on experience.

ThoughtWare project management coaches not only understand project management theories and techniques but we are all practising project managers with a string of successful projects spanning industries and covering a diverse base.

How does coaching take place?

Each coaching relationship is individually based and designed to support the coachee’s objectives, aligning the outcome with learning style, commitments to self and others.

How much will this cost and what benefit will I get?

$350 per hour (before GST in Australia). We also offer fixed prices for longer term assignments.

Coaching, implemented at an organisational level, can deliver dramatic results and drive significant financial impact to the bottom line. Coaching is about action and results!
