When you’re working on any project, there is only one outcome that matters – meeting project objectives.
For schedule objectives, this means completion of the project at the approved timeline.
For meeting cost objectives, this means completion of the project within the approved budget.
However, some projects seem to be fraught with issues from nearly the beginning. Overruns have become too common on projects. Impacts can come from execution risks, process gaps, scope changes, supply chain issues, labour issues, delays, miscommunication, environmental and permitting obstacles…the list of derailments can go on. Each project has its own unique scope, project stakeholders, and influencing factors to consider.
Determining what must be done to ensure your project completes on time and on budget is a process of information gathering, conducting analytics, and providing credible verifiable information to the decision-makers and stakeholders.
To bring objectivity into the assessment, sometimes it is best performed by a third party that can bring the power of perspective to the table.
A fresh set of eyes on the problem provides new data on the project, the experience that comes from decades of project controls work and leading edge knowledge of the tools that can help bring the project back on track, or prevent it from becoming delayed in the first place.
