Our project management processes have been developed over many years, based originally on Prince2 - adapting to the size and type of project.

These include :-

  • Preparing a project plan covering the scope of the project and timings, the main objectives and the milestones on which the project will be judged.
  • Using online tools eg Trello and Clickup for full visibility of where we are.
  • Track and resolve issues that arise and sending out regular updates.
  • Identifying any changes to the agreed specification and agreeing the way forward.

    Further details of the steps involved in an implementation are explained below.

Project Management: Planning

Without good project management, sadly even the very best software solution is likely to fail. So proven project management process are essential.

Over the years we have developed and honed a process that works for both us and for our clients to ensure we have the very best management tools.

Our project plans are created in MS Project and used to keep the project on track with timings and milestones.

For the day to day running of the tasks to be done, we use a Trello board so that all users have full visibility of the project.

Project Management Regular Reviews and Managing Change

Project Management: Regular Reviews and Managing Change

We will agree with you how often to have reviews of progress, and we would normally recommend that this is done weekly. 

These reviews are the opportunity to identify and resolve issues and to ensure that the timescales are kept.

Following each review we will update the documentation and plan.

As the project progresses there may be some additional requirements and we will document these and discuss at the next review meeting.

Some may be able to be incorporated in the current project, others may need further investigation or put as 'wish list' items for a later phase.

Either way, these will be picked up at the time and discussed with you.

Project Management: Milestone and Project Review

Milestones allow us to review the success of the project, or phase and it is essential that these are agreed and set at the start.

When a phase ends, then we will review with you how and when the milestones were met and if that phase can be signed off and closed.

We can then move onto the next phase or close the project. 

This is an important part for us as it is a real opprtunity to sit back and see what how everything went.

Award-winning MRP/ERP/CRM manufacturing management software
We love 123insight's approach which is quite simply unique in the software market. There is nothing to pay until you've viewed the software at workshops, completed full training, and are ready to implement!

Even then there's no binding contract; instead they offer a straightforward, fully inclusive, flexible, 'pay-as-you-go' monthly subscription, which can be cancelled any time. You can also purchase the software rather than a monthly subscription, either at the start or after several months when you've proven the software in your business.
