IT Project Management

Big or Small, We Have Your Needs Covered

No matter the size of the client or project, Marathon Consulting has the Project Management services option to match your needs. We know IT projects can be demanding. Tight timelines, budget constraints and unforeseen changes can frustrate any team.

We understand the importance of effective IT project planning and management. That's why we operate in one of two delivery modes: Staff Augmentation or Marathon Managed Engagement.

In staff augmentation mode, a Marathon project manger will lead the client's team and work within a predefined project management methodology. In that capacity, the client can leverage our team member's experience and knowledge.

In Marathon Managed Engagements (MME), we work with the client from project inception to define scope, goals, budget and work flow and we assume responsibility for managing the project. Our team is familiar with numerous project management tools, but we use Microsoft Project most often. Within Microsoft Project, we use specific project management tools like:

  • PERT charting
  • Resource allocations and leveling
  • GANTT charting
  • Estimates-to-complete
  • Multi-level interdependencies
  • Full range of project budgeting and reporting capabilities

We also understand project management is more than matching resources to needs. As your partner, we assist with risk and change management. At the project's inception, we conduct a thorough risk assessment, identify a mitigation plan and assign an individual responsible for executing the plan (overseen by the IT project manager).

Do you think your project is too large? Too small? We offer different levels of project management to fit your needs. Our team manages enterprise-level projects, which are often comprised of subordinate or sub-projects -- or the sub-projects themselves.

Over seventy-five percent (75%) of the Marathon project managers hold the Project Management Institute's (PMI) certification of "PMP". By coupling years of real-life project management experience with a difficult-to-achieve and recognized certification, Marathon clients receive the highest quality project management services.
