Our Principles define the core of our project management philosophy and approach, to develop and inspire high-performance project teams.
|Role. The project manager is a facilitator of team efforts, not the dictator.|
|Teamwork. Team members must have a clear understanding of, and commitment to, the project goals, and believe they will benefit through achievement of those goals.|
|Visibility. Project goals must be broken down logically into a sequence of tasks, each of which can be completed within one or two weeks (so start/completion dates can be easily monitored).|
|Risks. Potential risks must be identified as part of early planning, preventive and contingency plans must developed, and ongoing risk assessment must be integrated with regular status meetings.|
|Commitment. Each team member must be willing to commit to estimates and schedule, and take full accountability for completion of assigned tasks; their commitment must be backed by their resource manager.|
|Attitude. The project team must adopt an open attitude and collaborative spirit that encourages early warning and problem-solving, and discourages fault-finding and blame.|
|Communication. Regular weekly team review of status; immediate escalation, attention and daily tracking until late or problematic tasks are completed|
|Documentation. Accurate and complete documentation of plans and weekly progress is required to focus on completion of planned tasks and rapid corrective action if required.|
Our Principles are mirrored in a step-by-step Methodology, which marshals individual and collective effort to successfully achieve project goals.
