Project Management Services
At Javelin we provide services for Program Director, Program Manager and Project Manager roles, either on a short or long term contract arrangement to fulfil a temporary open position in your organization, or to support other services.
Javelin will take full responsibility for any task given by the client, including support to existing project management, change management and training. We can provide independent review and valuation of projects and programs, project ramp-up and risk management.
At Javelin we have more than 20 years’ experience in project management, and all our project managers have a solid technical engineering background in disciplines such as software engineering prior to transitioning into project management.
“A Project and Program Manager must be prepared to adapt to new evolving methodologies and environments”
Our managers are Certified Practising Project Directors and have international experience dealing with different cultures and practices.
Javelin Managers are accustomed to managing complex engineering projects, locally and internationally including:
Defence projects (Helicopter simulators, avionics systems, radar acoustic systems)
Defence Service Contract - Submarine Upgrades
Virtual prototype systems for the wireless and automotive industries
Product Development (Finance, Defence, Toolkits)
Through-Life Support (TLS)
Managing High Technology projects, programs or organizations
At Javelin we have extensive experience managing high technology organizations.
This type of organization is often driven by highly capable technical engineers, but with no real interest in Program Management.
“The successful outcome for any High Technology project, program or organization requires engaged and hands-on management “
We have the experience to “glue” the two functions together, and to provide open and transparent reporting between all levels in the company, particularly providing actual and up-to-date progress reporting to Senior Management and stakeholders.
We can put mechanisms in place to ensure stakeholders are informed of any concerns, risks and cost impact, including recovery planning related to any project on a weekly basis.
Javelin project and program managers will inject themselves into all critical components of a project and the organization. We believe in using exception management, and to do this we have developed reporting facilities and processes which can be introduced into any organization, either High Technology, Maintenance & Support or Through Life Support (TLS).
Javelin has extensive experience setting up and transforming organizations including rapid ramping up of staff.
We have more than 20 years’ experience in large Defence and Telco & IT programs. Through this experince we gained invaluable experience working with defence companies on complex and high value programs such as the AIR87 TIGER Simulators to the Australian Defence Force, including working closely with Australian Defence personnel operating the mission critical systems.
