Proton's Project Delivery Services include a range of proven and established tools and techniques designed to assist through all stages of a project’s life cycle. These services can be employed quickly, and used together or independently of each other to help achieve project success.
Proton’s comprehensive suite of tools and techniques can be used to enhance any or all aspects of a project. Our techniques have been proven in the field, on projects of all sizes and all levels of complexity, and can be adapted to suit all conditions and business needs.
Project Initiation is the most important part of any project and is often the most difficult to achieve successfully.
Project Initiation provides a reliable launch platform for your project by putting in place all essential project planning components including a Project Charter, Project Management Plan, Risk Profile, Project Profile, Task Plans and Schedules, Resourcing Plan, and Project Budget. It’s the project initiation stage that will set your project up for success.
Project Profiling is a diagnostic process and tool that collects information about the environment in which a project will operate, and provides a structured project framework tailored to the specific needs of the individual project.
Used as a stand-alone tool or to supplement a company’s existing processes, Project Profiling will determine the optimum level and mix of management effort required across the project to deliver its objectives.
Tracking & Reporting
Project Tracking and Reporting are essential aspects of any project, providing the project manager and stakeholders with a view of how a project is progressing and where it stands. This is not always as simple as it seems.
Proton’s Project Tracking and Reporting can be used independently or linked to your preferred project tracking database, to provide sound tracking data, objective progress assessments and clear trend analysis.
Risk Management provides a process to capture the risks associated with a project and an ongoing mechanism to assess, monitor and control risks that may impact on the project’s success.
Proton’s Risk Management services provide specialised support in Risk Identification, Risk Assessment, Response Development and Risk Control.
Early indicators of troubled projects include surprise costs, delays, scope shrinkage, and reduced “discretionary” effort in areas like testing and quality assurance.
Optimistic planning and unrealistic business cases can also undermine the viability of a project. We offer well developed tools and processes and a professional team experienced in diagnosing and remediating troubled projects, or salvaging value from early termination.
How can Proton help?
We work closely with clients to quickly establish how we can provide specific project expertise and at what stage. At the Initiation phase, we can lay the foundations for controlled execution and delivery of a project, ensuring early and close stakeholder involvement, realistic goal setting and effective risk identification. Project Profiling provides a structured framework with a clear understanding of the business climate and environment in which the project will be operating. Proton's Project Tracking & Reporting can be used independently or linked to your project tracking database, while Proton's Risk Management Services provide support in Risk Identification, Risk Assessment, Response Development and Risk Control. Portfolio Management and Enterprise Project Support will help Project Managers structure their projects, enabling the set-up of a repository and single control point that can be used for future projects.
