All projects, whatever their scale, start with a requirement and a goal to be met. Informant believes that the appointment of a confident and committed project manager, or project management team, is the first step to achieving that goal. Informant provides this service based on experience and trust gained through many successful projects. The company recommends a number of steps to follow that minimise the risk to any project:
• Each Scope should be clearly defined and agreed
• Feasibility including risk assessment must be tested and clearly understood
• Timescales should be practical and realistic
• Implementation should be planned and successfully managed
• Contractual conditions of the requirement should be clear and concise
• Support services should be responsible and reliable
Once approved, the project has to be initiated. No matter if the project is planned for internal or external purposes, is complex, if it reflects new areas of technology, unfamiliar tasks of new subcontractors, Informant can successfully meet its targets. In planning projects, Informant draws on many resources to make sure that the project plan accurately reflects the requirement, its time frame, and that the deliverable is met within the terms of the contract.
The advice we offer from the outset provides stakeholders with information that will keep them informed as the project evolves. Project managers – who have witnessed similar projects – ask the right questions and interpret the answers into information that is useful and viable for the project at hand.
