Project Management Framework Development
We provide the following development and implementation support services.
Industry Sector Lifecycles
PMIS does not believe in a one-size fits all approach. We do believe that every significant business needs a framework, which is relevant to its business environment and project lifecycle. In addition, the lifecycle of any project relates to, but is not the same as the technical development lifecycle. For instance, the technical lifecycle relates to decisions and commitments to technology, product or process, and the project management lifecycle relates more to business-level decisions processes and phases.
We have a range of template lifecycles to suit different industries and environments. We do not believe in ‘one-size-fits-all’ and can demonstrate this. The lifecycles are all focused on:
- Improving the quality of all the outputs from project definition
- Reducing risk systematically
- Operating a more collaborative and open management process
- Developing a balance between concurrency for speed, risk and effectiveness
- We have template Project lifecycles to cover, for example:
- Systems Engineering
- Engineering development
- Software development
- IT & IS
- Business projects
- Product Development Projects

Project Management (PM) Portal
A PM Portal provides access to an organisation’s PM knowledge base via an Intranet Portal. It is available to anyone with Intranet access and a web browser – a well-designed portal requires little training or instruction to use and is a great asset to the organisation. It is an advanced form of CbT for ‘how to manage projects in your organisation’
The purpose of a portal is to ‘breathe life’ into the organisation’s PM process. It uses Intranet pages to combine information on the process or training programme to demonstrate fundamental principles and best practices which are key to making the PM process work.
A well-designed portal is the equivalent of: instant access to an online, interactive process manual combined with relevant education and training material, as well as automatic provision of template documents and accompanying guidance where appropriate.
Typically, portals provide practical ‘what to do next’ guidance for all roles at any stage of the process. It also provides detailed ‘how to’ assistance and templates as applicable. PMIS has first-hand experience in helping to design PM portals.
