How Operations Support Can Help You Meet Your Objective

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

 

Large scale operations need all the support they can get in order to meet their objectives. If you require additional resources to meet the demands of a large scale operation, you may want to consider operations support. From introduction to operations via comprehensive training, to sensitive intelligence gathering and analysis, to everyday administrative services, operations support can provide your operation with the additional resources it needs in order to its objectives.

 

The Tenets of Operations Support

 

Training

 

Good training is the foundation of a successful operation. The equipment you’re using can only function to its maximum potential if your operators are well trained in its use. Training can be customized to fit the needs of your operations and bring all operators up to their full potential. Training includes:

 

  • Facilities and Materials
  • Instructors and Facilitators
  • Development of Curriculm
  • Presentation/Briefing Development
  • User Manual Development

 

Intelligence Analysis

 

Time-sensitive gathering, analysis, and reporting of intelligence is one of the hallmarks of our operations support services. We train our analysts to act with discretion and objective judgment of intelligence within the context of the scope and focus of the mission and the overall goal of the operation.

 

Administrative Services

 

Administrative services are no less important in the execution of an operation. Without a well-functioning administrative arm, other arms of the operation cannot function. With administrative support, you’re free to focus on complex tasks. Administrative services include:

 

  • Inventory
  • Meeting scheduling, preparation and minutes
  • Travel arrangements
  • Drafting correspondence
  • Copying, faxing, filing

Three Questions That Will Help You Find the Right Project Management Company

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

 

Finding the right project management company for your needs is not a simple task. With the wealth of project management companies out there, it can be hard to find the one that fits your specific requirements for your project and your organization. The following questions will help you to narrow down candidates in your search for a project management company.

Finding the Right Project Management Company

 

How many projects do you handle at the same time?

 

Project management companies should be able to handle numerous projects at the same time, of varying scopes. This shows that the company is dedicated to organization and efficient allocation of their resources, something which will be integral in the success of your project. Look for a project management company that overachieves while making it look effortless.

 

How do you manage workflow?

 

This question will give you an insight into how the company works to stay on top of its projects. Ask for an example from a previous project of workflow management. Organizations that can stay on top of all projects at all times will gain a reputation for doing so, of which you should be aware.

 

How do you deal with challenging team members?

 

Projects are composed of a wide range of people with varying skills, work habits and personalities. As such, it’s often difficult to align this group into a cohesive whole. However, this must be done if the project is to be successful. Ask the company about situations it has run into in the past and how it came up with a solution that satisfied all parties involved in order to move forward.

How Can Your Operation Benefit from Third Party IT Support?

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

 

If program and project management are the backbone of an operation, then IT is its nervous system. The complex infrastructure of an IT program requires innovative solutions to keep it going. Scalability, efficacy, and efficiency are all vital to the success of an IT program.

 

All operations recognize the importance of a comprehensive IT solution. However, not all operations have the necessary resources to achieve this goal. This is where a third party vendor solution comes in. Third party IT support is designed to help your organization reach its IT goals without losing sight of the main goal. By allowing a third party vendor to take over some or all of your IT operations, you can refocus on the big picture and important tasks. DHA offers third party IT support in the following areas.

 

IT Security

 

Data breaches, data leaks, hacking, viruses, vulnerabilities. It’s not hard to find a story these days about a successful breach of a large corporate IT operation. It is absolutely critical that your IT be protected from outside attacks. DHA covers your IT assets with ISO, network and physical security, critical infrastructure protection, and risk and vulnerability management to ensure you’re always protected.

 

IT Services

 

Under the umbrella of IT are a litany of essential services. DHA understands how to integrate our expertise with your program to deliver results. From system administration and help desk support to website development, data integration and infrastructure, we offer a comprehensive approach to IT that leaves no stone unturned.

 

Data Hosting

 

With the large data storage requirements of many organizations comes the need for an effective and efficient data store solution. Our turnkey hosting solutions offer the best of both worlds: safe, protected and reliable storage that is accessible wherever and whenever it is needed.

 

Telecommunications

 

The ability for an organization to communication both within and without itself enables it to succeed. Our enterprise BlackBerry Deployment/Management and SCTV telecommunications solutions ensure that you’re always in touch.
