Project Schedules can often provide a false sense of comfort to you as the customer (or Project Board Member) in terms of supplier project progress. As a supplier, proposal schedules can cost you thousands if quality errors or risks are not identified prior to contract signing. Costs are expended, time elapses are 'percent completes' are updated but rarely are project schedules used to fully inform the Project Board of the true health of the project. Many issues can be hiding just under the surface which you will not easily identify until it is too late. Now you can benefit from our advanced analytical tools and years of experience identifying and responding to the warning signs of project failure.
We provide a comprehensive and pragmattic schedule assurance service including rating the qaulity and deadline achievability using advanced analytics and probablistic (Monte Carlo) analysis. We can assess the static quality of a schedule developed by your staff or provided to you by a supplier as part of your due dilgence and gatekeeping process. We can also provide regular schedule assurance snapshots and dashboards throughout the life of project in parallel with regular project reporting providing you with an early warning system for common signs of project delay, cost overrun or failure long before you receive an Exception Report.
We can also provide schedule forensic analysis for troubled projects as part of your Exception Management process to understand what went wrong, assist in getting the project back on track and preventing similar problems on other projects.
We can provide this service to Project Managers, PMO Managers, Project Schedulers, Project Executives and Suppliers providing various report formats and levels of detail depending on the audience and purpose of engaging our services.
We are extremely experienced and can provide deep insights using Microsft Project and Oracle Primavera but have also successfully provided this service to customers using numerous other Project Management tools. Please get in contact for a free sample report for one of your projects. Once an acceptable level of quality has been established, we provide this as a fixed price service.
