Methodology

The diagram below is an alternative representation of an operation with its essential elements, generally known as: Product or Service, Process or Method & Equipment or Tools and their support structure. This model applies to most organizations regardless of their industry or size.

With an emphasis on Technological & Analytical solutions, our methodology is based on the analysis and strengthening of the three main elements and the links between them, which ultimately would result in achieving a well-balanced picture as shown.

Procedure

The following flow chart represents our procedure when dealing with assignments from the initial enquiry phase through to completion. The detailed activities are tailor-made to the clients’ organisation and their requirements.

Project Management & Management Processes

In parallel with well-established methods such as PRINCE (Project IN Controlled Environment), or PACE (Product And Cycle Time Excellence), or any other preferred method for managing Project/Programmes, where applicable, we recommend a dynamic project team structure rather than a static one.

In a static team structure (as below), contributors have an equal 2-way relationship (Pull) with the Project Manager (PM), and other team members, directly and indirectly throughout the project cycle time.

An Example of Static (Pull Method) Project Team Structure

In comparison, in a dynamic project team structure (see below) is more fluid and enables the PM to focus the tactical resources on the key activities of the project as and when required, supported (pushed) by the other members. Hence, a more efficient use of available expertise within the project structure is achieved.
