Work today is increasingly segmented into projects across various industries. These projects can extend for several years and have large budgets and labor requirements with much at stake both for the company performing the project as well as the client or customer on the receiving end. Whether the project is being developed and delivered at a physical location such as a real estate commercial construction project or a large-scale e-commerce endeavour online for a restaurant or shopping portal, it is essential that the project is managed well. Managing a project is both an art and science. Project management requires training, substantial experience, planning, and tools to be effective.
At KCM Consulting, we assist our clients in managing their projects so that they achieve their goals on time and on budget. We know the importance of achieving a significant return on investment (ROI) for your effort and if the project is over budget, the ROI can be much lower than planned. To ensure optimal performance, we use project management offices (PMOs) for our clients so that we can monitor projects carefully, remove obstacles, anticipate and reduce risks, avoid unnecessary expenditures, increase efficiency and accelerate productivity.
We follow best practices to ensure that our clients’ projects are completed well, achieving consistently high standards and managing performance effectively. Many KCM personnel are Project Management Professionals (PMP) with certifications from the Project Management Institute (PMI).
Effective project management requires:
- Scheduling to plan out all details of the project scope to be achieved
- Project Controls to measure progress and know when to make changes
- Risk Management to mitigate risks and ensure consistent performance
- Centralized project management such as PMO
