TIP 1: All important information must be on the project management system and available to the right people. All risks/Issues need to be logged in to web based project management system to be controlled. As on a PRINCE2 Foundation training Birmingham.
TIP 2: Start planning at the outset and monitor the progress.
TIP 3: Make regular (daily is better) progress checks to ensure everything is on track.
TIP 4: Your monitoring system must be completely automated otherwise you will end up having to replace Amazing systems to do writes and updates to the schedule. Web-based systems take away even the most basic manual workload.
TIP 5: Keep all your processes documented and obvious to anyone.
TIP 6: Commit to ensuring all critical items occur on time.
TIP 7: Don’t wait until the last minute to implement new processes. Avoid the consequences of later problems and their resolutions.
TIP 8: Don’t be a hero at the expense of your business. Find a replacement who is able to ‘just do it’ and you can enjoy saved plans and records.
TIP 9: Use your web-based project management system, again and again, to become a little more efficient.
The focus of this article has been on the processes and the scheduling methodologies and on how technology does not always deliver what we want. I only have limited knowledge to share with you about Group C and generally there are other options.
In my experience many institutions cannot get any things right due to lack of knowledge. The people who are competent understand the steps to follow as they apply them. They can’t make good decisions in cases where they have no written guidance.
When rigour and careful planning is done both at the outset and in the course of the project that will ensure a good result (remember prevention is better than cure).
Heroic managers who strive for excellence in businesses and projects will benefit a lot from the systematic rigour that I have followed for my own projects. I hope it’s useful to you.
The Business case for the Business Case for Procurement Process it must demonstrate ‘what this process can achieve’.
The below statements explain the rationale for supporting these various processes:
Once the Business Case is in place the hypothetical internal regulated supplier performance process is specified and called a Business Process
Properly implemented and managed Procurement activities will deliver a flawless result over which management can exercise control.
Best practices processes will significantly reduce delays, costs and missed contract commitments.
If processes are not in place then delays/cost increases can result in significant financial losses.
Processes need to be built on Checklists, Flowcharts and WORKFLOWcharts to ensure that they deliver the efficient and effective results.
Use of Process imaging tools can improve financial performance so that the finance department can act more as an active partner in procurement.
An understanding of procurement unrelated activity ( weird and valuable things that happen to suppliers)
All real P&PS issues need to be allocated to a specific department
unconditional contractors need to be able to clearly alternativeention cancels, reschedules and if required has an impact on resource levels.
All pricing requests need to be delivered to batch batches of the supplier’s prices. They cannot be “once offs”.
You have to allocate all supplier business classed finance related activities to a single department.
All supplier-specific business-related (bulk shipping, bank reconciliation, P/E, restrain- pipelines, redundancies, Versionarry) must be controlled in a single repository. Employee chiliBuffer metro extremistfd?!
Cost-saving Flexibility verse generous Promotionalrug imiplices!
Proper information management with web based project management systems is a requirement to compete!
Management has to accept the inevitable and be able to move forward.
The information providing to suppliers will directly reflect on the firm’s Credit rating or bad credit rating
Systems will not do without an efficient setup procedure.
The investment to implement these processes must be seen as an investment into the business and not a cost!
Any consultant worth his charges will insist on establishing and managing standards before doing you any favors.
