Projects of any kind are an indispensable part of business today. But projects also frequently need to bundle external resources in order to achieve predefined objectives within a predetermined time frame.
Especially where external service providers are called in, this can lead to conflicting objectives and problems.
BDO Saudi has extensive experience in the management of its own projects, but also in deployment with a view to bring projects already suffering from problems to a successful conclusion, or at least to mitigate cost and schedule overruns.
Handling of project management/project management office
BDO Saudi’s employees have extensive experience in the management of medium- and large-scale projects in the fields of change processes, reorganisation and IT.
In addition to this, a number of our project managers also have PRINCE2 certification and can draw on a set of tools for project management.
The establishment of a project management office has often proven useful for more complex and challenging projects. Based on stringent, but pragmatic project controlling, the project progress is monitored in terms of scheduling and resource planning; where appropriate, existing bottlenecks and conflicts are objectively analysed and appropriate countermeasures introduced to the extent necessary.
Project review/project relaunch
In many cases, thought is only given to the root cause of problems, or potentially how to resolve them, following failure to achieve milestones or significant cost overruns.
A neutral analysis of the concrete situation in the scope of a project review by BDO Saudi can help objectively analyse and evaluate the problems that have occurred thus far. On this basis, a decision on continuing the project with a new, realistic schedule and within budget can then be made. BDO Saudi supports companies within the scope of a project relaunch in creating realistic resource planning and scheduling, as well as the project structures required for successful project implementation, including meaningful project controlling.
