Project and Program Management

While there are industry standards for project and program management, each company has a unique culture and is at a different point in their product development journey. Our experienced team works with you to effectively manage and control your project, programs and portfolios. Verista has a very strong GXP quality culture and experience that ensures that your projects are always in state of control. We ensure communications are clear and relevant, change is controlled, issues and risks are managed, quality is assured, and project success is realized.

We provide methodology and best practices material and training for all types of project management: waterfall, agile and hybrid.   Our methodologies also include project health, Program Management Office (PMO) and Application Portfolio Optimization (APO).

For new startup companies, getting your application portfolio right can be challenging. Regulatory requirements add complexity and risk to this effort. We have worked with many new startups to create an application portfolio and roadmap with the right processes and procedures for GXP compliance.
