A project is a series of activities designed to accomplish a specific end result within a specific timeframe and within an established budget. Managing non-routine work with discipline can greatly improve the outcome.
As companies allocate resources to manage the non-routine aspects of the business, the cost of these activities is highlighted. Many companies spend large sums of money in project activities, only to fail in accomplishing the desired results. One key to project success is defining project outcomes (benefits, capital costs, expense costs, timing, etc.) as clearly as possible before ever commissioning a project. Often when you measure the outcomes you will take a different course. OMI has developed a series of examination and estimation processes that can help your company quickly decide, during the feasibility assessment phase, whether you should start a project. Phase 0 Excellence.
Much effort has been spent over the last several years in improving project discipline and in developing standardized methodologies. However, many companies still struggle with ‘deploying’ the solutions developed during a project and then moving them into a “business as usual” operations state. Having worked in many operating transformations, OMI staff has developed tools and methodologies to help strengthen this typical project deficiency. To simplify project terminology and to highlight these deployment activities, we have developed a methodology that focuses in four disciplines- Define, Design, Develop, and Deploy. The 4D Project Method.
Many companies are excellent at managing their day-to-day operations but are not equipped to manage significant non-routine initiatives, or they have so many of these project activities underway that they have insufficient resources to manage all the project requirements. OMI can provide skilled resources to help staff your project requirements. Project Management Services.
