The development of complex projects requires technical knowledge, but also involves the ability to plan, to identify procedures, to organize and to control the resources in order to achieve the goal. The activity of every member of the working group needs to be explicitly identified, so that each person can contribute at his/her best and according to his/her specific competences to the project’s success.
“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” (Henry Ford)
The benefits of relying on experts in project management are:
The specific knowledge of available technologies allows to identify the most suitable resources and to integrate them in the project. A detailed preliminary analysis allows to optimize the results. Technologically cutting-edge projects ensure maximum quality and efficiency and guarantee enduring results.
Every phase of the project is marked through a detailed plan reporting all the activities and their deadlines. In this way, it is possible to know when the results are going to be achieved and to start the development and the organization of new initiatives and projects based on these certainties.
The development of a project is an investment. In order to get returns, evaluating the entity of the investment is essential. This is accomplished through a preliminary analysis which specifies the costs of every single step of the project. In order to proceed, it is also necessary to know about economic benefits deriving from the completion of the project. The analysis must include resource optimization solutions, such as the preparation of technical documents to be submitted to different suppliers in mutual competition in order to identify the best offers.
As the project manager must only provide reports for his customer, he is able to make independent and expert choices, in the sole interest of his client.
