Project & Programme Management
Structured Project and Programme Management is not only the most efficient way of introducing change - it is an imperative for successful implementation.
Project management approaches the management of the change process by: defining what has to be accomplished, generally in terms of time, cost, and technical ICT, regulartory and quality performance parameters; developing a plan to achieve these and then working this plan, ensuring that progress is maintained in line with these objectives; using appropriate project management
techniques and tools to plan, monitor and maintain progress; employing persons skilled in project management – the project manager – who has responsibility for introducing the change and is accountable for its successful accomplishment.
Project Management may be defined as the discipline of managing projects successfully.
Project Management techniques apply throughout the project lifecycle, from the earliest stages of project definition through implementation and into post implementation phases.
Programme Management provides the "single point of integrative responsibility" needed to ensure that everything within sub-projects is managed effectively to deliver a successful programme.
The Europartnership team have used a number of proprietary Project Management techniques over the years as approaches and software to support projects have evolved. Currently in vogue for large projects is the methodology of PRINS2 with Microsoft Project as the software support.
Programmes managed by Europartnership include a EUR 50m business-led transformation involving a complex coordination of people, processes and systems; a EUR 2.4 Billion business sell off (disentanglement) as a going concern from a previously integrated organisation; and a regionalisation programme involving reduction from 25 National warehouses into 3 European Distribution Centres.
