Whenever we want to achieve something, we need to answer some basic questions:
What are we trying to do?
When will we start?
What do we need?
Can we do it alone, or do we need help?
How long will it take?
How much will it cost?
These are the usual questions asked at the start of any project, and the answers will form the building blocks of project management, define what we want to do and the best way we can do it.
Project Solutions can provide structured project management, ordering the project into defined steps to develop a logical and organised project management plan.
Your projects will benefit from:
A common and consistent approach
A controlled and organised start, middle and end
Regular reviews of progress against plan
Assurance that the project continues to have a business justification
The key purpose of Project Execution is to complete the work defined in the project management plan and to meet the key project objectives.
During this phase of the project it is important to focus on:
Communicating information to all key stakeholders, sponsors and team members
Some strategies to promote successful project execution:
Begin with the End in Mind
Gain Buy-in from Your Core Tea
Build a High Performing Team
Monitor Progress and Performance through Accountability
Regular project meetings are a great way to firm up agreements, document actionable items, identify risks/issues and hold project stakeholders accountable to produce results.
It is important to keep the line of communication open throughout the project, making sure to follow up before, during and after meetings regarding outstanding action items, issues and risks.

There are always changes during the life of a project. People change their minds and other things happen which affect what the project is doing.
It is important to assess the impact of changes, working out what could go wrong and planning what to do if it does, and carrying out regular checks on the quality of work done on the project.
Project Solutions can help to manage Change, Risk and Quality on your projects, saving time and money and ensuring quality of the end product.
PROGRESS & PERFORMANCE MONITORING
Project progress and performance monitoring helps project stakeholders know what work has been done, the resources that have been used to execute those tasks, and helps them create an earned value analysis by measuring project variance and tracking milestones.
Key to project progress and performance monitoring is the use of project tracking tools relevant to the size and complexity of the project. For example, status reports allow managers to track project progress by providing an overview of tasks, risks and milestones at any point of the project life cycle. Other types of project reports like progress reports can gather extra details that provide further insight into deliverables and performance. This data can then be distributed to the project team and stakeholders to keep them updated.
Project Solutions can help with progress and performance monitoring to ensure successful project execution on your next project.
We will act with Honesty, Integrity and Transparency at all times, with a Duty to Fulfil Obligations and be a Loyal, Reliable and Dependable partner.
