Project management at DCI involves the planning and organization of a company’s resources to move a specific task or project towards the successful completion by responsibly using the funds entrusted to us by our clients. Project Management is the process of leading the work of a project team to achieve goals and objectives of a project at a specified time.
DCI believes on a result-based project management that ensures successful and quality implementation of each project. DCI knows that the success of any project depends on how well four key aspects (also known as four P’s) are aligned with the contextual dynamics affecting the project. The four P’s are defined as under;
Plan: The planning and forecasting activities.
Process: The overall approach to all activities and project governance.
People: Including dynamics of how they collaborate and communicate.
Power: Lines of authority, decision-makers, organograms, policies for implementation, etc.
There are several approaches to organizing and completing project activities, however; regardless of the methodology employed, careful consideration must be given to the overall project objectives, timeline, and cost, as well as the roles and responsibilities of project team and stakeholders.
For each project award, DCI follows the following phased based approach and each project has an entry and exit phases:
- Project Conception and Initiation
- Project Planning and Design
- Project Launch or Execution
- Project Monitoring and Controlling
- Project Completion and Closeout
There is a general tendency to confuse the project success with project management success, we should know that they are two different things. Project management success criteria is different from the actual project success criteria. The project management is said to be successful, if the given project is completed within the agreed upon time, scope, and budget.
