Sky Media Services: Project Management
Project management services are focused on the project management process itself and include: initial project planning (tasks, resources, schedule), task oversight, tracking, reporting, and change management. This is a service that is provided in support of a ministry's project. Such a project typically has resources and leadership already assigned to it, but is lacking either project management skills or related resources (time and energy) to adequately carry out the process.
Included in this area are the following services:
- Oversee and direct the project process
Although the ministry still maintains complete control of the
project, its objectives, deliverables, resources and outcomes,
Sky Media oversees and directs the activity of the project team.
This coordination role focuses on ensuring that the project
team is properly directed and managed throughout the process
and that the resources are used most effectively.
- Specify functional requirements, and assemble/select systems
contractors (as required)
- Consult and advise the technical team in the areas of:
- Information storage and management
- Database functions
- Transaction processing
- On-line access and information delivery
- Systems (hardware, software, etc.) implementation and
- Specify and oversee the functional testing of the overall
and its components
- Specify training requirements, select training vendor and
oversee training schedule and results
- Provide support as required in the procurement process,
systems management and operations and change

organization's limited resources are invested and used properly.
Sky Media offers complete project management and systems integration
services to address this area. These services are adaptable to any
range of ministry situations. Where a ministry has few staff and
contractor resources, and desires Sky Media to carry out all functions,
these services would be extensive and cover all aspects of the project(s).
On the other hand, the ministry may have a certain level of resources
available, and simply need Sky Media to guide and enhance the current
staff. Sky Media is ready to respond to any combination of these
