Project Management

Bring clarity to the project goals, aligned to a detailed understanding of your business needs.

Project management experts offer a flexible and highly bespoke service based on a robust and well-proven formula for delivery. Working alongside our clients, we adopt a value-driven approach to defining and articulating business and project objectives before identifying the most effective means to deliver. We provide a full spectrum of project management services from the preparation of business cases and the development of organisational frameworks to straightforward procurement, design, construction delivery and operation.
Regardless of the scale or complexity of a project, we employ and refine our systems and processes to provide control, governance and transparency from inception to completion. At the point of every decision we make on behalf of our clients, we challenge the status quo and work diligently to find the smartest, most efficient and most cost effective solution.

Initiation

All projects start with an idea for a product, service, or other desirable outcome. The initiation process group determines the nature and scope of the project. If this stage is not performed well, it is unlikely the project will be successful in meeting the businesses needs. The key project controls needed, are an understanding of the business environment and making sure all necessary controls are incorporated into the project. Any deficiencies should be reported and a recommendation made to fix them.
We bring clarity to the project goals, aligned to a detailed understanding of your business needs.

Planning and Design

After initiation, the project is planned to an appropriate level of detail. The main purpose is to plan time, cost and resources adequately to estimate the work needed and to manage risk effectively during project execution. This is recorded in the project management plan. As with the initiation process group, a failure to plan adequately lessens the project’s chances of success.
We design a rigorous programme, including team roles and responsibilities, identifying efficiencies and savings, risk and opportunities.

Execution

Execution consists of the processes used to complete the work defined in the project management plan, to accomplish the project’s objectives. The execution process involves co-ordinating people and resources, as well as integrating and performing the activities of the project. The deliverables are produced as outputs from the processes performed as defined in the project management plan.
We mobilise quickly, operating from deep within the organisation, working harmoniously within your corporate culture.

Monitoring and Controlling

The monitoring and controlling process group involves managing and tracking the project, so potential problems can be identified quickly and corrective action taken. To do this the project management plan is used.
We aim to close programmes to the satisfaction of all stakeholders, demonstrating real value in both quantitative and qualitative terms

Closing

Project closing is an important part of project management, sometimes overlooked. A project that is not closed will continue to consume resources.
