Precise, controlled, and managed Project Delivery is the main thrust of Project Managers UK. Based on a thorough grounding in all the principles of delivery from feasibility, through optioneering, strategic decision making pre-contract, post contract delivery, contract closure, and into final scheme operation and beyond.
Project delivery provided by Project Managers UK begins with properly conceived and executed procurement, based on appropriate risk share into contracts from a project risk review. If funding is present, a detailed assessment of the funders requirements will be absorbed into this process, allowing the procurements to stand up to audit.
The core skills retained by Project Managers UK are an ability to make informed judgements in a timely manner to retain project cohesion, mitigate any programme delay, whilst reducing where feasible, commercial and contractual risk, and support the Clients’ vision.
Risk Management is a strong process operated by Project Managers UK that can be applied across programmes, projects, and sub projects. PMUK staff have been trained in ‘Risk Management Workshop Facilitation’, and can utilise the stakeholder environment to generate a risk dialogue that can be structured and captured to form an important Project Management tool.
The risk output report is a key document to set the parameters for project success, and Project Managers UK utilise this to structure the remaining key actions for the project. Risks should be clearly defined with a; mitigation action, cost, timescale and owner. Risk should be taken by the party most able to mitigate the risk, thus leading to an optimised cost effective risk management process.
Project Managers UK have run a number of risk workshops to align directly with their project delivery, and have delivered risk workshops to various other Clients in a variety of sectors i.e, waste, power, regeneration, heritage, infrastructure, and housing.
