During interview, Principle Solutions Architect mentioned the distinct between PCSS Implementation is driven by Project Management Methodologies rather than heavily investing on ICT without a good understanding the art of Project Management. ‘We do have a few clients who emphasize heavily on the system itself and networking system. Client gets blinded with the cost invested on the system and expecting a magic wonder in their project monitoring system but forgetting the foundation of the solution is dependent on the competency of the user that will drive efficiency of the Project Management Solution. Where by PCSS Solution emphasize on increasing the maturity of Project Control Knowledge and changing the Project Control culture.’ With the architect of the solution, it is more economical for the client and reduces the investment on the system setup and focus on PCSS consultation services.
