What is MethodA

MethodA is a framework for overall IT management in organizations, spanning the project level to the organizational level

introduction

MethodA is a framework for overall IT management in organizations, spanning the project level to the organizational level.

At the project level (individual system), MethodA defines the management, development, maintainance, and operation of IT systems of any type and scope - systems under development, systems being maintained, IT systems and infrastructure systems, complete system or “lean” system, tailored turnkey systems or off-the-shelf software sold and installed with minor adjustments and customization.

At the organizational level, MethodA provides methods and tools for executive management, including annual work plans, project tracking (PMO), management of requirements and tasks, overall information management (OCIO), and overall strategic planning or oursourcing.

At both levels, the project and the organizational level, the MethodA approach represents both a framework and an open methodology. In other words, MethodA provides extensive and comprehensive knowledge and clear guidelines for project management, yet leaves a wide berth for adjustments and changes, enabling the organization to incorporate its policies with MethodA.

At the project/system level

MethodA defines how to manage, develop, and maintain IT systems of any type and scope:

  • IT systems
  • Infrastructure systems
  • Self-developed systems
  • Off the shelf systems

MethodA outlines the steps and expected deliverables throughout the project lifecycle – from initiation and characterization of the system, to design and build (or procure and customize), to systems tests, to installation, operation, and maintenance.

In addition, MethodA provides crucial tools covering the entire application lifecycle (ALM), including:
