Below is an overview of the various services offered by AA Media Group. They cover the complete project lifecycle and can be delivered separately or together.
Most projects consists of people, processes and technology. Instead of focussing on technology only, AA Media Group believes in combining all three elements.
The consequence is that there is an emphasis on the current and desired way of working together. A project can only be successful when it is accepted by the users. This is why AA Media Group involves the user from needs analysis all the way through testing and training.
Replacing tape based broadcast components with IT-based components should be seen as only the first step, the real benefit comes from optimizing the integration
AA Media Group sits down with the customer and vendors to analyse and design optimised solutions and architecture. By understanding both IT and broadcast, it is possible to design IT-based solutions without forgetting the specific broadcast needs.
Project and Programme Management
Key services in AA Media Group’s services portfolio are high-end Project and Programme management.
In our view a Programme is not simply a very large project. Where a project has clear requirements and objectives, often focussed on a limited part of the organisation, a Programme’s scope is much wider. Programme’s are aimed at the business objectives of an organisation and at the start of the programme the ultimate end situation is not always clear but will be defined in the course of the programme. Programme’s usually consists of a number of projects with strong dependencies such as common interfaces or shared resources. Since programme’s are aimed at improving the business they inevitably also include an organisational change management project.
In a projects ‘changes’ can be considered incidents that can be handled with a relatively simple change control procedure. In Programme’s however change management is a key process, together with for instance risk management, stakeholder management and benefits management. Since programmes often span years rather than months, it is very likely that the program itself will change during its course. This requires a very solid change management process with all stakeholders involved at the right levels.
AA Media Group has a vast experience both in the roles of project management and programme management. We can fulfil these roles on behalf of a System Integrator, as well as on behalf of the end-customer.
During implementation AA Media Group manages the scope, timeframe, budget and quality of the project. AA Media Group communicates with vendors and the customer. This can be done representing the customer or as turn-key project manager.
