Project Coaching

We provide an independent service not influenced by internal politics.

We have industry and world-wide knowledge which enables us to introduce ideas that may not have occurred to team members.

 

Project Coaching is about:
bullet

Helping the Project Team
bullet

To have clear direction and support through excellent communication, openness and trust, flexibility, understanding, listening, feedback, encouragement

bullet

To develop a focused Project Plan, based on common objectives / targets, Value and Risk Studies

bullet

To develop Value Improvement techniques at all stages of the Project directed towards a Lean and Cost Effective Project, and to mitigate Risk through effective Risk Management techniques

bullet

To find ways of eliminating non-Value Added activities

bullet

To have effective resources through promoting commitment, and knowing how to deal with excuses and resistance etc.

bullet

To ensure successful Project completion, understanding what it means to be successful, and what it means not to succeed

bullet

To have in place at all times an action plan to solve problems and to achieve performance, ensuring that personal commitment is maintained at all times.

For best effect, these need to be introduced to a Project from the very earliest stages.

 

Example:
bullet

Ongoing support to a fully Integrated Project Team and Supply Chain from the start to finish of a large Highway Project through the leading of:
bullet

Partnering and Cascading Workshops

bullet

Value and Risk Studies including Whole Life Costing at various stages of the Project

bullet

Design detailing and Value Engineering Reviews, sorting out issues which are inevitably of a financial nature

bullet

Contract Requirement Reviews - establishing whether what the contract asks for has been interpreted correctly by all, and is really what the Client wants

bullet

Management Reviews to determine that the Project Management set up matches the needs of the Project

bullet

Testing and Inspection Reviews, distinguishing between what the management thinks is happening and what is really happening

bullet

Regular reviews monitoring that value is being added and that unnecessary cost is being avoided

bullet

Focusing (through Project Proving) on how to achieve a smooth handover to the Owner of the Project.

There is a global view that over the next ten years our clients will be required to improve their efficiency and to reduce their costs by as much as 30% off present day costs.

The unthinkable alternative is not to be as competitive as the rivals
