PROGRAMME & PROJECT
We adopt the main principles of well-known methodologies such as Prince2 and MSP (Managing Successful Programmes) for programme and project management, based on experience drawn from vast number of projects we have managed so far.
Our consultants work on-site with organisations to provide them with outcome driven support to achieve long-term improvements and measurable results.
We follow below stages which we think are minimum requirements to manage successful projects:
Identification – Pre-Project
We understand the importance of getting a project right from the outset; working with organisations to brainstorm ideas and offering expert advice and guidance in setting a clear vision that is vital in leading a project. In this stage, the project or programme is scoped and a project brief is developed; the strategic fit and vision is defined with a clear business case, and the main project documentation drafted.
Definition / Initiation
Successful project initiation is critical to the success of project delivery; however, not all organisations give this phase of project management the attention it needs. The long-term success – or failure – of a project is often dictated by what a project management office does or, rather, does not do. In this stage, the project is fully defined, and the documentation finalised and agreed. The project governance is developed and the required structures including the project board are established. Project deliverables are also fully developed within this phase and the final timeline and project budget are agreed by the project board. Outcomes and benefits are mapped out and their monitoring and measurement agreed.
The delivery of the project is managed using fit for purpose structures and tools. Reporting mechanisms are established to make sure required management controls are in place, and any issues observed are captured through the registers and logs. Any necessary changes to the project are controlled through the change request process, ensuring that all changes are agreed by the project board and documented.
The project closure ensures that project’s performance is reviewed by comparing to baseline documents, all lessons learned throughout the project are assessed and benefits mapped out. Any benefits that have not been realised yet are handed over to the ‘business as usual’, together with a high-level evaluation of the deliverables.
Long term relationships have always been at the heart of our business. Through our commitment to quality, we focus on what really matters – creating strategies and delivering programmes that will leave a lasting legacy.
