Moran Technology Consulting

Transforming Higher Education Technology

Project Management Services

We combine a detailed understanding of higher education processes, organization and culture, with heavy implementation experience and project management discipline to ensure successful process transformation and system implementations. We also offer detailed project assessments to analyze strengths and weaknesses with realistic recommendations for corrective action before it’s too late! 

Some common challenges that we find at institutions implementing new ERP (Finance and HCM), Student and/or CRM systems or a major upgrade:

  • The necessary experience in managing complex ERP projects within Higher Education is not available within the institution (or is in short supply);
  • Coordinating activities across multiple functional areas is difficult and can be politically challenging for an employee of the institution;
  • Inexperience with managing an implementation partner on a major project;
  • The functionality enabled by the new system requires navigating significant transformation, which can be challenging for internal resources to manage;
  • The institution’s pace of change is often contrary to project schedules.

MTC provides experienced and vendor independent project / program management resources to manage all aspects of implementation and process assistance to help your institution successfully make the change.

Independent Project Reviews and Audits

Our approach can be tailored to fit the size of your project or program. 

Our assessments can be completed in as little as two weeks for smaller projects.  We focus on critical areas such as the project team, governance, schedule, budget, status reporting, conversion, integrations, reports, security, and change readiness.  We can also accommodate assessments or quality reviews are on regularly scheduled basis.

Our proven approach is based on completing comprehensive project quality reviews at major points in time during a project to provide an on-going assessment and to monitor the project and review deliverables and change orders – all based on mutually agreed upon review dates.
