Are you getting ready to kickoff a new project?
StrategicReserve works with your staff at project inception to gain an in-depth understanding of the project. We will define what success would mean to you for the completion of the project, or more simply what "done" means, to include your expectations for quality, cost, scope, and schedule.
When people hear "project plan", they think schedule. But the plan is so much more!
We create a Project Plan package that encompasses all areas of your project, including project schedule, approved scope, communications management, risk assessment, requirements mgmt/change mgmt, financial plan, stakeholder info and more.
Project Schedule- AKA your Integrated Master Schedule
Over 1 in 3 (34%) projects have no baseline. (Source: Wellingtone)
We will develop a project schedule that is realistic and actually matches the work you will do. You do not have to use Microsoft Project to manage a schedule! We are experienced in using MS Project, and we can also recommend alternative software that aligns with your organization needs. In many cases, you may already have software that can be fit for the purpose of managing a schedule. We can help you make those tweaks to your existing tools and save money in the process!
Does your project have the appropriate level of visibility?
Your team members should have access to all the information they need to do their tasks and make the project successful. The project manager should have visibility into the tasks that every team member is working on at any given time. Leadership should have access to the high-level. bottom line project data they need for accurate decision making across the board. You may have a requirement to provide project status to external stakeholders or customers as well.
StrategicReserve will design reporting mechanisms that aggregate pertinent data and tailor the data output to your audience. We can also help you keep on top of your project milestones in between reporting, with technology you already use, such as your email client and calendar.
If your project is for an external customer, we can perform a review of your contract and cross-reference it with your project plan to ensure deliverables are accounted for and meet contractual requirements
Do you have a project that is off-track? Well, you are certainly not alone.
Let us review your "pain points" and help recalibrate your project to overcome common issues such as scope creep, critical path issues, understanding of roles and responsibilities on the team, resource overallocation, communication, and project visibility.
