Project Management Methodology
While carrying out major IT projects for enterprise clients, Progent follows the Microsoft Solutions Framework (MSF) project methodology, a structured approach based on pre-defined milestones that help keep projects from spiraling out of control. MSF makes it easy for management to monitor a project's progress while ensuring that costs are contained and schedules are kept. For details about the best practices incorporated in MSF, refer to Progent's project management methodology.
