Profitably delivering complex projects typically demands keen and constant management attention and business systems to avoid over-runs and cost blow outs.
Coordinated departmental communications aids with the delivery of the right people, products, services and outcomes at the right times and accurate and timely collection of information and sharing of data helps with controlling every aspect of the project.
Communicating with field staff, recruiting people, advertising for staff, new staff inductions, paying people – the people side of a project, must tie in with sales, finance and operation departments otherwise projects, particularly fixed fee projects, can go awry very quickly.
