Inesol's director of professional services Dr. Bill Nicholas is a project management expert having written two books on technical project management and several project management tools including add-ons for Hoskyns PMW, MS Project Server, Inesol's own In-Scope project management tool and Unilever's own in-house project management software.
Bill is both Prince 2 certified and a certified Agile Scrum Master and trains corporates on combining Agile with Prince2 under an independant PMO. He also advises small companies on the setup of quality processes and is an independant trainer for many of the popular toolsets.
By default at Inesol all projects are run according to Dr. Nicholas's recommendations using a light version of Prince2, with SCRUM being used for the development phase, however we are happy to accomodate any methodology a customer wishes us to use.
Inesol use Microsoft Team Foundation Server internally, along with In-Scope and Integra Helpdesk, however each client and each project has a dedicated sharepoint site setup allowing constant communication, file sharing and integrated business processes with the client's project team. Normally the client will provide a "business project manager" to act as product owner, however if the client is unable to do this then Inesol's PMO will provide this function as a quality check independantly.
Where a customer is hiring significant resource in the Indian development team, the customer will be allocated an on-site representative in Bangalore (sometimes an independant project management contractor) to ensure that the work being delivered meets the client's quality requirements.
The price for our project management consultants starts at £400 /day but reduces steeply when multiple days are purchased. Inesol are happy to arrange training courses (either on-site or here in Bristol) for a simmilar cost. Inesol also sponsor a few residential leadership training courses per year at a hotel in Ross-on-Wye. These are slightly more expensive due to the cost of accomodation / food etc.
