San Ramon, CA (PRWEB) February 5, 2008
Xinify Technologies, Inc. announces its unique staff augmentation service, Xinify Project Management Practice, serving the critical needs of enterprise IT (EIT) divisions that use CA Clarity, across a wide range of industries that includes automotive, financial services, insurance, health care, entertainment and high-tech.
Xinify's existing portfolio of services already includes highly-trained project management consultants for implementation and maintenance projects, but Xinify found that their clients using CA Clarity need project managers with deep project management and business soft skills training, targeted business area experience and industry knowledge, which requires a new, specialized talent service.
Every IT division in every industry is faced with the persistent challenge of finding and retaining top-notch project managers able to successfully guide enterprise-wide projects and gather critical data to drive accurate, proactive decisions throughout a project's life cycle.
Even more challenging is finding fully qualified project managers with deep CA Clarity expertise capable of accurately gathering the data that drives a company's decision-making process. To fulfill this critical need, Xinify now offers Project Management Practice, providing highly trained, specialized talent for their clients, specifically trained in CA Clarity as well as in the principles of project management and coached in key business skills.
Xinify partners with each client to fully understand their organizational, staffing and project needs. As part of the initial needs assessment, Xinify can perform a thorough evaluation of existing project management aptitude and provide a staffing plan and training recommendations that will allow a client to build out a fully-capable, robust PM team. To help staff that team, Xinify then recruits candidates to begin the screening and placement process.
Once PM candidates are fully screened through a comprehensive background check (including qualification and experience verification), they receive world-class training in project management skills through Xinify's PM Boot Camp, which includes thorough training in EPM tools --- CA Clarity, Open Workbench, Microsoft Project, as well as risk assessment, risk mitigation planning, resource scheduling and budget management. This ensures candidates have a solid foundation of fundamental skills as they receive CA Clarity and specialized training for a client's project.
With PM Boot Camp completed candidates then receive mentoring and coaching in business soft skills -- an increasingly important component in successful PM placements. Soft skill training covers areas such as communication, negotiation, managing stress, client management, conflict resolution and leadership.
After candidates are placed, Xinify maintains regular check-ins with clients and continues to coach and mentor each project manager to ensure exceptional performance throughout their engagements. Xinify's PM Boot Camp and their sustained level of mentoring and ongoing training is a one-of-a-kind service offered only by Xinify's Project Management Practice.
Rich Guard, Program Director for the Project Management Practice said, "Unlike staff placement-only project management solutions, Xinify's Project Management Practice combines the verification of Project Management certification and experience with extensive training led by experienced professional project managers. Xinify's training is followed by a series of one-on-one mentor/coaching sessions facilitated by an experienced mentor coach in which PM principles along with CA Clarity, Microsoft Project, and Open Workbench techniques and tips are interwoven with coaching on soft skills such as, team-building, influence and inspiration, motivation, communication, conflict resolution, problem solving, decision-making, ownership and commitment, and execution. Our program ensures clients receive the very best project managers that will help drive their EPM business and achieve results every time."
Noland Eidsmoe, Xinify's Senior Vice President for North America Client Services added, "For Enterprise Information Technology (EIT) organizations that have adopted a fixed/variable staffing model that reflects a mix of full-time staff and contingent PM talent, finding a dependable reserve of project management staff is invaluable. For CIO's, Application Development Directors and PMO Directors who need an extraordinarily reliable source of talented Project Managers, Xinify's Project Management Practice provides a source of vetted and certified PMs who are experienced in a broad array of industries and large variety enterprise-wide applications."
