At Adept Technology, we pride ourselves on our ability to adapt to our client’s needs.
Through our integrated approach we offer both leadership and expertise as we work alongside clients to deliver business value from their initiative or project. We work as true partners, embedded and aligned with our clients to produce high-value, high-impact results.
No two engagements are the same, and we can mix, match and extend our offerings to meet your specific goals. Our most popular services come under four categories:
Adept can provide expert program, project and software engineering management, governance or support, acting as leaders and partners to drive project success.
Is your software team, project or organisational structure missing a leader? Need someone to step in until you can fill the role permanently? An Adept interim manager can provide expert leadership and project management, coordinating a smooth handover once a permanent leader is available.
Program and Project Governance and Assurance
Program and project governance is about defining a structured decision making framework to ensure predictable, high-quality project outcomes. Adept project governance increases the repeatability, confidence and predictability of successful outcomes through the development and execution of a tailored project plan.
Vendor relationships can be complicated. Adept’s vendor management services can handle the entire process from requirements definition and project approval through procurement to final delivery, ensuring that you get the ideal solution and value for money.
Adept Technology prides itself on its independence and on being vendor agnostic, and has the industry experience to ensure optimal outcomes for their clients without conflicts of interest.
Adept’s capability uplift services focus on maximising the capabilities of existing workforce, enabling you to develop your organisation’s performance through upskilling and Agile Transformation.
Agile Transformation and Capability Uplift
Agile is an iterative approach to software development that has grown to become a cornerstone of modern project management.
Adept excels in coordinating Agile adoption, implementing it in a phased manner to ensure maximum benefit to the organisation while minimising disruption to day-to-day activities. Our certified Scrum Masters can provide the skills and experience that will equip your team with the tools they need to become an efficient, effective Agile powerhouse.
To ensure you have the capability to deliver on your objectives, you need to understand where the capability comes from. This means workforce planning, career advancement plans for your staff, recruitment and redeployment. Adept is experienced in growing engineering and software organisations, and can help evaluate the current state, build a vision of the future capability and create a plan for how to get there.
Program and Project Management Office Activation
As organisations mature and the scale and scope of activities and projects increases, there are a number of factors that must be addressed:
- Defining best practice in the new organisational context
- Overseeing consistent reporting of programs
- Compliance with new policy
It is also important to provide a pool of project managers and project support staff to act as a repository for organisational knowledge and experience, able to fast-track the activation of new projects within the business and provide consistency and reliability to project delivery. Adept can define the requirements for the program and project management office and help develop the capability and staffing plan as the capability grows.
