It is often said that ‘Projects over spend and over run one day at a time’ this is generally due to the 2 project killers of scope creep and slippage. A project is a discrete piece of work with an absolute defined beginning and end, a programme is a collection of projects being managed to deliver an overall business change such as a move of premises, a new business process system (ERP) or even a merger of two companies.
At ISPM we follow a structured methodology to run your projects; the simple but effective 5 step stage and gate process will ensure projects are completed on time with no surprises. The stage and gate framework is;
Start Up (Business case and initial proposal)
Define (What will be delivered, time scales, resources, plans)
Implement (Creation, Delivery, Customise and Test)
Deploy (Install, Test, Train and Handover)
Close (Review, Document and Archive)
