“Building capability and embedding your project or program management methodology to target resources and gain cost benefits”.

Organizations Training and Coaching:

Develop your staff so that they have the capability to deliver effective projects and programs. We help organizations to build the right skills to meet strategic and tactical challenges. You may wish to address your whole approach to project or program management or you may want assistance on a specific initiative. Our services are designed to help you to maximize resources in projects and therefore return on investment (ROI).

Building Capability within your staff helps them to deliver their projects and programs on time and to budget. We help organizations develop their project, program, risk and change methods to increase their effectiveness. Many organizations find that they need a bespoke method that is tailored to their own organizational needs. Once agreed it is important that this method is embedded so that staff are using it on a day to day basis.

Embedding a method requires tailored training solutions where the staff learn the new method, this may include workshops for staff to work through possible barriers and then find suitable solutions. This also contributes to your program and project managers’ personal development.

Best practices and recognized methods:

Always use a recognized methodology to run your projects smoothly and to give senior staff an overview of progress against cost, time and quality goals. Project Management runs a set of activities to meet a measurable set of goals within cost, time and quality margins. For example if you are targeted to bring a new IT development, a construction project or an administration process change into action you are definitely running a project.

As a recognized profession Project Management is well respected and now many members of staff have a project management element in their roles. This is the part of their job where they are pushing ahead with a new change and they now need project management competency. Project Managers need to be able to plan and then control their projects, this is helped by the use of a standard method which can be implemented across a department or organization. These staff need skills in portfolio management, building a business case and investment appraisal, project sponsorship, benefits management, stakeholder management, scheduling, earned value management, project finance, procurement, marketing and sales, project life cycles, hand over and close out.

Using a methodology across your organization has the advantage that senior staff are fully informed of progress and can control the use of resources. All stakeholders can communicate in a shared terminology so that everyone involved in your project will understand how they need to act to make it successful.
