Project Management
& Governance

ThoughtDesign understands that project management is more than just technical challenges broken down into manageable tasks. Business and strategic goals need to form part of the actionable plan. ThoughtDesign provides governance around projects via effective communication amongst all parties involved in the project and good practices aided by tools to support them.

Commitment to processes should lead to a better outcome. Peer reviews, clear accountabilities and measurements, monitoring and simplified reporting are essential to project governance. No single project management methodology can fit all cases since each software project is unique in many ways.

ThoughtDesign can help you project manage your next software development project. We take a holistic approach to governance for all project stakeholders.
