Exceptional Systems



Exceptional Systems offer a range of PMO services tailored to your specific requirements.


With many years' experience in IT project / programme management across a diverse portfolio of business sectors, we are attuned to the wider needs of business and IT organisations to deliver cost-effective and timely solutions.


Design: We can offer PMO process design services ranging from a selection of our own off-the-shelf packages through to bespoke solutions which integrate with your overall business and / or IT model.

The scope can encompass all aspects of project / programme management including business case; project scoping; planning; management of assumptions, dependencies, risks, issues, changes and exceptions; monitoring; reporting.

Compliance with all or part of the PRINCE2 approach can be accommodated where desired, as can the ability to support CMMI and ISO9000 certification.


Implementation: We have practical hands-on experience of defining and implementing PMO processes across a range of tools, and have particular expertise in MS Project (including Server / Enterprise variants) and SharePoint MOSS. As would be expected, we are also comfortable using a wider range of tools such as MS Office, HP PPM, Open Workbench, etc..

We are happy to share our knowledge by training / coaching / mentoring your staff so that they (and you) are able to maximise the benefits of our approach. We can provide tailored training courses and materials as required.


Governance / Compliance: We can put in place measures to track and report on your project organisation's compliance with defined processes - this is generally a requirement for CMMI and ISO9000 certification in any case.

Our general strategy for compliance is to avoid the conflicts which can arise in such situations by employing a collaborative approach geared to guiding and helping project management meet governance requirements without impacting on costs or timescales. This, again, is where our project management background can pay dividends.


Operation: If you need short-term of long-term assistance in running your projects, we can offer hands-on management and / or practitioner services across all or part of the PMO remit.

Our extensive background in project management and application development, as well as PMO services, avoids the common communication barriers between the PMO and project management.
