Project process and tools - your roadmap to project success

Project management methodology is all about knowing where you want to go and knowing how to get there. When an organization has implemented a project management methodology, it has essentially provided a roadmap showing staff how to achieve project success according to corporate objectives. Without such a roadmap in place, there will certainly be no consistency in how projects are performed and therefore no sure fire way to measure project performance.

One of the pillars of the corporate history of Bates is our Project Management Methodology (PMM). Over the last thirty years the Bates PMM has been used across hundreds of organizations managing projects of all sizes, ranging from facilities to information technology to restructuring to marketing. During this time the PMM has evolved to reflect current day best practices and the ever-changing issues of business. The PMM is structured to provide the requisite management techniques and processes from project selection through to project close-out, from both a corporate and individual project perspective. The tools and techniques provided in the Bates PMM provide the structure needed to get consistent results and the flexibility to adapt to your organizational culture. Whether you need a ready-to-launch methodology; a customized version merging our PMM with your processes; or an assessment of your own corporate methodology, we can provide you with the expertise you need.

Methodology Assessment and Gap Analysis

We recognize that many of today's successful organizations are in some stage of developing or implementing their own project management methodology. We can help you determine if your methodology has any gaps that may impede project success - as well as make recommendations for how to fix those gaps and improve your processes.


Methodology Customization

Bates can develop a methodology specific to your organizational requirements, incorporating existing business processes and lifecycles. Using our comprehensive experience in methodology development, we will deliver a practical, user-friendly solution.
