Project & programme management

Our wide-ranging expertise includes managing or restructuring large organisations, upgrading managerial capabilities, and coordinating sectoral initiatives. Assignments across all our business streams include some management services component - whether relating to resources, systems, training or organisational structure. Our services have ranged from short investigations to long-term Technical Assistance programmes that require thirty or more person-years of consultancy services.

Our approach is designed to continuously monitor and assess the progress of a project to ensure the most efficient action is taken regarding the three vital parameters of time, cost and quality.

The control and coordination of complex projects requires access to appropriate management information systems at all its stages. In order to achieve the necessary level of monitoring with regard to time, cost and quality, we employ the latest computer systems and software compatible with our client’s systems. This provides comprehensive control and reporting on past, present and predicted project conditions; meaning problems are identified early-on and prompt responses are made to resolve difficulties.

  • Coordinate project inputs to ensure the necessary resources, both human and material, are available at the required time.
