Project Management

Our clients typically want to get something done; something for which there is a need. Getting it done involves people and time. They are not sure how best to go about it and expect that there could well be difficulties to be worked through along the way. They choose to use a professional project manager either to manage the project or to provide direction, mentoring and audit.

New Zealand has about 800 certified Project Management Professionals (PMP®) and a growing number of certified PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) practitioners. These people have demonstrated a solid foundation of knowledge from which they can competently practice project management. Voyedge is a Nelson based organisation of certified project managers who apply themselves to technology projects.

Voyedge brings objectivity and independence to your ICT related decision making and is focused on aligning business objectives to technology options. A sought after service, pertinent at the outset of many projects, is that of business process analysis. Voyedge has extensive techniques and templates that we draw upon when working with your front-line staff to capture workflow steps and record these in a clear manner from where they can be discussed and refined. Other services under this category include: feasibility reports; system selection process (procurement); audits; operational reviews.

ICT Manager

Voyedge act as your information & communication technology (ICT) manager.
