Having developed a strategic IT plan for the charity and produced the business case for investment, BLMS took on the role of project manager to coordinate the implementation activities. This involved coordinating the work of three suppliers, a specialist consultant, and the local NHS Trust ICT team who provide onsite technical support for the charity. This was not a full-time role, the project management tasks equated to about a day per week on average, spread almost randomly over the week. Our flexibility was key to providing this part-time project management service. At one point, the testing of the applications became a significant and resource-hungry task and we stepped up our involvement to help manage and execute the test plan.
