Usually through the consulting process, projects are identified to address certain operations, for instance in…

Business: Determine the health status and value of the business for obtaining investment or a possible sell

Communications: Executing a PR or Advertising campaign, or an event.

Brand Management: Performing a Brand Equity Audit on the company’s products, services and brand assets…

And so on…

HOW PROJECT MANAGEMENT WORKS

Project Management, is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.

PM is a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a unique outcome or result.

A project is temporary in that it has a defined beginning and end in time, and therefore defined scope and resources. A project is not a routine operation, but a specific set of tasks and activities designed to accomplish a singular goal.

A project team often includes people who don’t usually work together – and is put together from persons with specific talents, skills and abilities for the specific tasks needed and project requirements – sometimes from different organisations and across multiple geographies.

The development of software for an improved business process, the construction of a building or bridge, the relief effort after a natural disaster, the expansion of sales and marketing into a new geographic market, an organising of an event — are all projects.

And all must be expertly managed to deliver on-time, on-budget, with successful results, and the integration within business operations that organisations need.

Project management knowledge draws on ten areas:

  • Integration
  • Scope
  • Time
  • Cost
  • Quality
  • Procurement
  • Human resources
  • Communications
  • Risk management
  • Stakeholder management

All management is concerned with these, of course. But project management brings a unique focus shaped by the goals, resources and schedule of each project.

Project management processes fall into five groups:

Initiating
Let’s chat about what you’re looking for and see if I am a good fit for the project. When you like my thoughts and ideas…

Planning
We’ll take a look at all the details of your project and discuss how to split up the work within a team which can be formed in-house – plus outside experts and advisors – depending on the project.

Executing
RDL works with you the entire way, from start to successful delivery and results.

Monitoring and Controlling
Quality and efficacy is vital and all monitoring and controlling devices and tools are used to create the data which will help inform and interpret results and performance as established by KPAs, KPIs and Balance Scorecards.

Evaluating, Reporting and Closing.
