3 Essential Elements of Project Controls

27th April 2016 | By TBH

TBh provided project controls services on the M80 Project in VIC.

With good project planning, good project controls and reporting  leads to the successful delivery of the Program and Project outcomes.

Historical research of both successful and failed projects show that even a well led good project team still requires three essential elements:

  • Good planning: providing better definition of scope, budgets, milestones, and risks/opportunities assumptions leading to alignment and commitment of key stakeholders.
  • Good controls: providing proactive and effective management of opportunities, risks and changes leading to maximising project and program outcomes.
  • Good reports: providing efficient capturing of accurate and early detection of deviations from project targets and hence outcomes.

Simply knowing  industry best practices is not enough, tailoring them to suit the project and project team is essential to a successful outcome.

TBH has developed a suite of reporting systems that can be tailored to suit our clients’ needs and operations so that the project is both efficiently and effectively planned and controlled and program outcomes are not only realised but optimised.
