There have been countless records of projects and programmes failures. Good project management is essential to counter potential failure and control a project through well defined stages to co-ordinate visible activity and achieve desired results.
To assist organizations in achieving this, we provide a full range of project and programme management services which we tailor to the needs of an individual client and the characteristics of a particular programme/project. We help to create an appropriate framework and process for success then we provide support to justify, initiate, manage and implement the programme/project so that it can be delivered on schedule and to budget, thereby meeting its objectives and realising its benefits.
The following are typical contributions, helping clients:
- To ensure that there is a sound foundation to justify the programme/project: facilitating steering group sponsorship; addressing the commercial elements; and business requirements
- To put component plans and procedures in place to facilitate successful delivery. From the vision statement and blueprint of a programme, thorough its projects portfolio and communications strategy, to project-specific quality/technical/resource plans and procedures for risk and benefit management; we help to prepare the business case and initiation documents that will be used to monitor and control the project
- To ensure that the quality of products and deliverables meets the business expectations and the efficacy of new business processes meets or exceeds service levels
- To make all those involved aware of their responsibilities, committed and able to undertake their tasks effectively. We engender and maintain a partnership between programme/project sponsors, external stakeholders, the programme/project team, staff and professional advisers alike to facilitate informed decision making.
We know what works so, during each phase in a programme/project, while we focus on meeting short-term delivery objectives we always set a sound foundation for future phases so that ensuing, dependent, tasks can be completed efficiently and effectively. Accordingly, we are able to minimise the time and expense of delivery.
