Good project management often means the difference between success and failure. The fundamentals of managing a project from start to finish requires a team of individuals with different skills, talents and abilities to come together to achieve one goal.
Network installations, refreshes or upgrades can be chaotic if not tightly managed. Budgets and deadlines are the first to suffer when something goes off track. To avoid this, LAN3 offers a Project Management service to our clients, to ensure that projects stay on track and meet the objectives set out pre-purchase, and that the risk of budget overruns is minimised.
Some projects can cost a significant amount of money, so budget management is essential, especially if you are delivering a project for a fixed cost. Utilising project management strategies greatly reduces the risk of budget overrun. LAN3's experienced Project Managers will identify any potential risks to your budget, during the planning stage and continually throughout the project. All risks will be analysed, and a suitable risk response will be agreed, so that you have a plan of action already in place should risk become reality.
With hundreds of network installations under our belts, having LAN3 manage a network upgrade project greatly reduces the risks of failure, missed deadlines and budgetary overshoots. There aren't many networking challenges or requirements that LAN3 won't have successfully overcome before.
Changes are an inevitable part of complex networking projects. Managing these changes can be a daunting task, but should be embraced not ignored. LAN3 will implement a change management process before any work starts, ensuring that only changes within the scope of a particular project are approved and implemented.
After 10 years managing and implementing highly complex network installations, in thousands of challenging locations across the country - including hospitals, palaces and UNESCO world heritage sites - we understand the common risks involved in such projects, and can take actions to mitigate against them. There are very few situations that we haven't previously faced and successfully overcome.
Inevitably, projects face challenges, and occasionally fail. Project management doesn't guarantee success, but it can vastly improve your chances. And when coupled with LAN3's expertise and real world experience, effective project management vastly increases your chances of delivering a project on time and on budget.
