Project Design and Management Services
Building on our strong background on Project Management, we offer project management services for all stages of a project’s life-cycle (inception, initiation, execution and closure) according to our clients’ needs.
We can provide an independent, unbiased, evidence-based perspective at the inception stage that helps our clients avoid the negative effects of optimism bias and strategic misinterpretation and contribute our planning and execution skills at later project stages.
- Project Inception Services: Our experience indicates that the quality of outcomes at this stage have a profound impact on the project’s final success since organisational optimism bias and strategic misinterpretation tend to overestimate project benefits and underestimate costs and risks. Therefore, an independent, unbiased perspective at this stage is highly recommended and we can provide it.
- Project Initiation Services: In this phase we support our clients in developing the detailed project documentation for project management, quality assurance, project deliverables, workplan and project staffing.
- Project Execution Services: The scope of our services at this stage depends on the type of our engagement in the project. In the case that we provide project management as a service, we usually assign our people to the roles of Project Manager (and optionally Project Support or Project Support Office) or the Project Assurance. Otherwise, we provide support in terms of assessing progress, reviewing stage status and verifying project products.
- Project Closure Services: For projects where we have not assumed the role of Project Manager, we support the project’s manager in elaborating the End Project Report, the Lessons Learnt / Follow-up Recommendations Report. We also support the project when audited for financial and / or external evaluation purposes.
