OUR PROJECT MANAGERS USE STATE OF THE ART TOOLS REQUIRED FOR PROJECT MANAGEMENT AND COMPLIANCE WITH TIMELINES AND BUDGET
FOR EACH PROJECT, OHC ASSIGNS A PROJECT MANAGER
OHC approaches every project using the tools of optimized project management that clearly identify the objective goals to be achieved. We painstakingly ensure that the steps to reach the goals are indeed practical and within the service capacity of the team assembled to complete the project. This approach ensures a realistic effort versus completion scenario and proves beneficial to both the client and OHC. At the onset of each project, an OHC Project Manager will meet with the client to clearly define the project scope, deliverables, schedule, and cost elements to ensure that the project is begun with the correct intermediate and final project milestones established to both parties satisfaction.
Planning tools such as Timeline or Primavera are often used to schedule and plan large multi-task projects. A simple, but comprehensive checklist approach will be used for smaller projects. OHC firmly believes in using the right tools and resources for projects, thereby executing and completing them expeditiously and cost effectively. Various project management approaches are envisaged to effectively provide the environmental consulting and engineering services required by the client. One of the most important aspects of project management is effective communication. For each project, OHC assigns a Project Manager as the main point of contact.
The Project Manager plans, schedules, and assembles from the pool of resources available the necessary team to effectively execute and complete the project. The Project Manager ensures that detailed attention is given to the project elements so that all project deadlines are accomplished. If a problem arises, the Project Manager will effectively and quickly analyze the cause and implement alternate routes to achieve the project objectives. The Project Manager will use experience from other projects to anticipate possible problems.
The Project Manager will use experience from other projects to anticipate possible problems. Another key element in project management is the capacity to not become dismayed by changes in the project scope and elements due to field conditions and additions to the overall project objectives. These types of changes are inevitable in most projects and it takes some maturity on the part of the Project Manager to deal dispassionately and effectively in such instances. An important aspect of these types of project scope changes is its impact on the cost of the project. OHC’s Project Manager will always endeavor to keep such cost additions on a realistic level and inform the the client of all the details of such cost revisions.
