Focus: distribution of your precious time…

30% Time Management: 

  • The Project Manager needs to define, schedule and accurately estimate the task duration to develop and maintain a realistic schedule. This includes managing the customer’s time and planning ahead to avoid unnecessary extensions.


40% Reporting and Budgeting:

  • Reporting is a crucial part of communication with the customer as well as your team. It highlights the accomplishments, roadblocks, progress and budget spend. This report is gathered on a regular basis and can be used to plan similar projects in the future.
  • Keeping within or under the overall project budget is often what makes or breaks a project. You can deliver an exceptional milestone on time, but if that cost more than the budget signed, then the project is a failure. You must monitor the actual spend as compared to the planned budget. If those figures are off, you must adjust accordingly.


20% Quality:

  • Before each deliverable are presented to the customer, you need to ensure the quality of work meets expectation or better and make sure they are satisfied with the results.


10% Admin:

  • All projects require precise and consistent documentation. For the customer but also for the internal teams. It’s the delivery teams responsibility to ensure documentations are created and capture the right information. Besides project documentation, there is also the responsibility for managing internal documents.


Focus: your new best friends...
