Project Management

Methodology

  • The project management methodology used by Crescendo is based on the Project Management Institute (PMI) & SureStep approaches, which can be adapted depending on the scale or/and complexity of each project. We have a dedicated Project Management Team, consisting of PMP & SureStep Certified & real-life experienced Project Managers.
  • The methdology is structured into four main phases:

1. Project Initiaton

The aim of this phase is to establish all aspects related to the project implementation and the project management system, i.e. project team members, work and communication framework, preparation of location, facilities and support.

2. Project Planning

This phase aims to set out the project plan according to the specific work requirements. Project plans can have various degrees of detail and may focus on different aspects of the project (tasks, deliverables, milestones).

3. Project Execution and Control

In this phase, the Project Manager’s responsibilities will include the following: progress monitoring and control, organizing project meetings, reporting on project status, assessing and managing risks/changes.

4. Project Closure
In the closure phase, the project manager is responsible for signing off for the delivery of the project, as well as for project outcome evaluation. In some cases, when required in the contract or by the scale of the project, the project manager will also draw up a final report.

Throughout the project lifecycle, the project manager uses a set of procedures, including issue management, change control, risk management and communication management
