Regain control of troubled IT projects and the confidence of your stakeholders by quickly getting your project back on track.
There are many reasons why a project needs to be recovered or handed over. Disagreement or loss of trust of an existing external developer, internal staff movement, change of internal it focus, identification of major security issues, retirement of staff, closure of vendor, cost overruns and many more.
Whatever the reason, your project is or was meant to be a major asset of the business and you need to gain control of the system again.
Planning is the key to any successful project handover and is critical in Speedwell’s 5 phases of taking over a project: Current state documentation, technical review documentation, project governance, engagement (sprint 0) and delivery (sprint 1+).
- Project rescue
- Project recovery
- Project intervention
- Project handover
- Technical review

Like any asset, software requires regular maintenance to continue to be effective and productive within your business. Broad types of maintenance include: security patching and monitoring, testing on new versions of operating systems, database maintenance, performance tuning or working with the latest browsers and compliance updates. Support is also offered in the way of content changes and minor enhancements.
Working with your business and IT stakeholders our account managers will work with you to define: maintenance schedules and performance metrics; content production and management timelines and schedules; short, medium and long term strategies and tactics to ensure your system meets your clients’ needs; promotional activities and how the system is involved; and budgets, timelines and required service levels.
Once this is defined, our project managers, technical and creative teams take over and deliver what is needed to meet your needs.
Your competitors are not standing still, neither are the expectations of your clients. To ensure that your system is keeping up with your needs, and those of your clients, it is important to set a vision and plan the upgrades required for your system now and into the future. Types of upgrades include enhancements in the way of new features (often delivered as a standalone project); or marketing promotions such as new products and marketing related activity.
