A long-term value-driven approach where customers are earned rather than bought. We’re obsessively passionate about it, and our mission is to help people achieve it. Just because that’s the way it’s always been done, doesn’t mean there isn’t a better, more efficient way to do it. We are constantly questioning the traditional approach to discover new and more creative ways to deliver success. We focus on simplifying and streamlining complex global IT engagements.
Why the Orchestra Theme?
Our founder was inspired by and leads like the great conductors. Surrounded by the most talented and experienced team in the world, how much does the conductor really do? Well, as it turns out, not much (during the performance at least). It's the 10,000 hours of practice and collaboration as a team that create perfect harmony.
Where does the name come from?
No hidden message here. The shortcut keys for paste are at the core of our mission. No two projects are alike. Each engagement is unique. Our goal at CTRL+V is to partner with our customers to copy and paste their processes, goals, and even style to every aspect of our delivery with the end-goal having a replicated, repeatable, and predictable solution.
At the core of CTRL+V’s success is our team of Project Managers.
At CTRL+V, our Project Management team are known as “Concertmasters”. In an orchestra, the duties and tasks of the concertmaster are to primarily act as the conduit between conductor and orchestra and are accountable to both parties. There is no better way to describe the role of a project manager in a complex IT engagement. Concertmasters must have in depth knowledge of historical playing styles of their section in addition to complete understanding of the mechanics of playing.
Another primary duty of the concertmaster is to translate instructions from the conductor into specific technical language for the orchestra. Some conductors prefer to speak more broadly and defer to the concertmaster on such matters out of respect for the musicians who are expert specialists while the conductor is often a generalist.
We’ve all been there, “high-level”, “30,000 feet”, etc. The job of the CTRL+V project manager is to bring that down to specific, attainable, and measurable elements to create harmony in IT orchestration.
