DETAILED 6 STEP METHODOLOGY
What is Project Management?
Project Management is the process of applying knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to project activities to meet project requirements.
The purpose of Project Management is to plan, organise and manage resources to bring about the successful completion of project specific goals, outcomes and deliverables.
The benefits of Project Management as a discipline are well studied and documented and we bring to you a way you too can benefit by applying our unique 6 step method.
Our 6 Steps to Success have been robustly tested across the breadth of programs/ projects from post-disaster, commercial and not for profit. Its' application requires empathy and a view through the lens of the stakeholders to deliver value in their eyes, ultimately leading to achieving success with more confidence and less risk of failure.
The 6 Step methodology is summarised as follows:
Rapid Environment Assessment & Learning.
Stakeholder Engagement & Outcomes.
Communication & Value.
Project Definition & Planning.
Implementation & Monitoring.
Step 2 - SCOPE
Stakeholder Engagement & Outcomes
To determine who your stakeholders are, you should ask yourself: ‘Who should be involved?’ Remember that a successful project is one which satisfies the needs, wants and values of all key stakeholders.
Who are the key stakeholders?
What are their priority needs, wants and value criteria?
What are the outcomes & end results that lead to community resilience?
Step 4 - PLAN
Project Definition & Planning
How do you plan to deliver?
A program plan is a broad effort encompassing several projects with a common purpose.
With the stakeholders agreeing to the overall Goal, Outcomes and Deliverables, it is time to develop your plan with a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). Each deliverable should have a set of activities leading to measurable milestones that can be resourced, financially, personnel and feasibly achieved.
Do all your deliverables have activities defined?
Can the activities be resourced and co-ordinated?
Can your WBS be scheduled with a timeline?
Step 6 - EVAL
How do you EVALUATE success?
It is important you determine how you will evaluate your project from the beginning to understand how you will measure its' success. Evaluation of a project provides feedback as to whether the project is on track to achieve the intended value and what needs to be done to correct its course. This means working with the agreed outcomes and the intended measures for success.
Can the achievement of each outcome be measured?
What is the success criteria for each outcome?
How do you measure the value once completed and while in progress?
Do the intended outcomes lead to a resilient community?
