For a project to be completed on time, on budget, and with high quality, the right mix of planning, monitoring, and controlling need to be applied.
Due to the high rate of project failures, it might be the case that one thinks that companies would look forward to just get the project done. But that is not reality. Organisations want projects to be finished however crucially on time, within budget, and of the best quality. This can only be achieved if effective project management processes and techniques are used.
Hereunder are the project phases that will be discussed during this seminar.
PROPOSAL – The first phase of a project is the development of the proposal, especially if this is to be quoted to a client. This includes the formulation of:
Aims & objectives; roles & responsibilities required to implement the project; possible constraints envisaged; project monitoring.
PLANNING – The planning stage follows and it is required to prepare for the following stage of implementation. This should follow what has been proposed and take into account:
Physical resources; financial resources; human resources; risk assessment; time management.
IMPLEMENTATION – This is an important phase as here is where all the planning will be exhibited. At this stage it is vital to:
Assign individually assigned tasks & support other team members; activity log.
WARNING SIGNS – Look for signs depicting that the project may be in trouble. These could include the following:
Financial variance analysis; delays; team morale; deterioration of quality & quality-control steps.
EVALUATION – Self-evaluation & peer-evaluation.Download Event Brochure
