Project Planning

Planning a project can be difficult, even for experienced teams. This project stage is critical to project success and requires careful input to the Work Breakdown Structure, Schedule and Cost baselines and Project Management Plan.

Project Recovery

We provide Project Recovery Services which provide solutions to recovering failing projects. Our project managers will determine what corrective actions are required to bring the project back in line with the original project cost and schedule baseline.

This service varies from project to project depending on the exact requirements. Velopi’s Project Recovery service will assist in the recovery of failed or doomed projects and direct the project back to baseline.

Project Management Outsourcing

Outsourcing is becoming increasingly popular as a means to manage various aspects of a project without the costly resources associated with in-house teams. Outsourcing provides more successful project outcomes, due to its associated cost reductions and organisational restructuring.

Our Project Management Outsourcing service supplies Project Management Professional (PMP®) certified project managers to your organisations to project manage your projects. We can tailor our service to meet your demands and can place our experienced staff in your office to ensure a hands on approach.

Project Management Office Setup

Large projectised organisations benefit from the use of Project Management Offices (PMO’s). If your organisation requires a Project Management Office to be setup, we can assist in the preparation of PMO systems by providing advice, Project Management Tools and knowledge. We can also provide reviews as to whether a PMO would suit your organisation.

Project Management Maturity Assessment

Effective project management is vital to implementing your organization’s strategy. Yet, many companies do not manage their projects in a consistent fashion and, in some cases, they are managed in an ad-hoc manner. What is the situation in your organization?

To find out, it is advised to carry out a maturity assessment to determine at what level your project management is. Velopi’s assessment is based on Harold Kerzner’s work and it rates project management across five different levels:

  • Level 1 determines if those concerned with projects – team members, project managers, clients and support functions – speak the same language when it comes to managing projects. Weaknesses here are usually addressed by basic project management training.
  • Level 2 explores the processes being used to manage projects and how much support there is for project management at both front-line and executive level. It can take up to two years to become proficient at level 2. Training and coaching at management level is needed to get here.
  • Level 3 describes an organization that has internalized project management. Kerzner uses the analogy of a virtuoso musician, who no longer needs step by step instructions (or Standard Operating Procedures) to carry out the work. Instead, project managers can adapt the standard processes to any project they encounter; they only require guidelines, rather than detailed instructions. This is a mature organization.
  • Levels 4 and 5 relate to continuous improvement. At level 4, a Project Management Office might be set up and project management-related KPIs established. At level 5, we are constantly reviewing how projects are managed and optimizing where possible. In other words, a level 3 (mature) organization needs to keep on top of its project management competence to remain an effective asset to the organization.

Creating a Project Management Standard Operating Procedure

One of the key requirements for consistent project management is a common understanding of how projects are managed. Velopi has worked with several companies over the years to create a standard operating procedure (SOP) document that is not only relevant to their situation, but also is based on the principles laid out in the Project Management Institute’s Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide).

Our experienced consultants will discuss your organization’s requirements and create a realistic SOP that reflects your project mix. For example, in many organizations, there are many small, low-budget projects that suffer under the full rigour of project management. We have devised lightweight processes that allow control without excessive overhead. We can also assist with project selection, enabling portfolio managers to weigh projects based on a variety of factors, such as scale, risk and potential return on investment. In this way, the optimal suite of projects can be identified quickly and objectively.

For training purposes, we have created a suite of generic project management templates. These contain the essential aspects of the artefacts concerned and form an ideal basis of tailoring to your organization’s needs. Having all project managers using the same templates and employing the same project management processes will make the high-level management of the portfolio significantly more straightforward.
