Is your Project Manager a project manager?

Project management requires a project team to deliver on their commitment:

1.     At or below budget

2.     Before or on the proposed date of completion

3.     In complete safely, to high quality and within all required industry legislation

 

1.     Budget: 

·       Is your Project Manager in control of all project resources and materials?

·       Does your Project Manager have control of your project budget?

·       Can your Project Manager tell you how the project budget is tracking throughout these works? Backed up with figures and facts of course.

2.     Date of completion:

·       Does your Project Manager have a plan (not solely a Gantt chart – a proper working plan) for project delivery?

·       Can your Project Manager tell you how the project timeline is tracking throughout these works? Also, backed up with figures and facts.

3.     Compliance of works with industry legislation:

·       Can your Project Manager confirm all works are being completed within industry legislation?

·       Does the Project plan align with all industry requirements? (i.e. safety, quality, environment).

Inexperienced Project Manager

  •   No problems, we’ll deal with that when we get to that task
  •   Trust me, it will work out
  •   All I have to do is manage my resources” (copy of the contract, Gantt chart)
  •   The contractor will sort it out, it’s their responsibility
  •   I’m not sure how that happened, but don’t worry it won’t happen again

Experienced Project Manager

  •   Has developed plans for Scenarios A, B, C, D, … well before works have commenced
  •   Realises that ‘unexpected’ means ‘not catered for’
  •   Is very flexible and adept at seamlessly gliding between plans for Scenarios A, B, C, D, … as required
  •   Understands that 99% of projects are not straightforward
  •   Can update you as needed on time & cost tracking of your project
