David Gibbons, Chief Operating Officer
“The number one benefit has been to raise the profile of our investments and roadmap to the board and put the decisions around investments back in the hands of the business. We now have that regular forum for debate and understand what we can and can’t do. It’s given us that rigour and we can clearly see what the impact of starting, and just as importantly, stopping projects is. We’re much more under control.”
Stuart Page, SVP Global Technology

“They understand that process is a tool to be used appropriately to ensure a project succeeds. It is not a bureaucratic barrier to hide behind.
This approach allows them to fit in with the culture of the organisation they are assigned to, and to all intents and purposes become a trusted member of that organisation for the duration of the assignment.”

What the NPG team said…
“Paul [the Magic Milestones Consultant] coordinated the team of product owner, stakeholders, developers and QA very efficiently. Working with them, he led efforts to put together the project requirements, translate them into KPIs and key metrics, plus outline the necessary analytics tool implementation and reporting requirements.
The data obtained from the analytics implementations, which was analysed by Paul himself and verified with the in-house analytics team, clearly demonstrated the effects of each iterative developmental change and communicated to the business the success derived from the changes.
Such metrics will be helpful in providing benchmarks for future developments of the search application.”
Li-Kim Lee, Web Analyst at NPG
Magic Milestones provided a high calibre project manager, skilled primarily in agile but able to flex to a planned iterative model. This enabled a challenging project to be delivered to the expectations of the business.
