The need

The Halifax Transit Technology Roadmap identified all technology-enabled business initiatives required to support its key business drivers, to improve service quality and customer satisfaction. The technology roadmap recommended the sequence of 33 work-streams over a multi-year period and estimated cost to develop and implement best practice business processes through sector-leading technology solutions.

The solution

Barrington led the Program Management Office (PMO) and project teams. PMO deliverables included:

  • Establishing PMO processes, procedures, strategy frameworks, and governance for the program;
  • On-going updates to the strategic roadmap;

  • Transitioning business and technical functions from the projects to Halifax staff.
