At RJS Consultants we understand that formal project techniques such as PRINCE2, SDLC, SSADM, (and others) as well as development techniques such as RAD and JAD, are extremely important to deliver a project to time and budget.
However, whilst these formal techniques are important, they must not be so inflexible that a short 4 week project is overloaded with 6 weeks of documentation!
To cope with this we have developed project processes that help the project manager control a project in a flexible fashion, with the ability to deliver reports and project scorecards in keeping with the size of the project.
Our processes are so flexible that we only demand 2 mandatory documents for a project – a scope document (so that everyone understands what is required) and a completion document (so that we both agree when a project is complete), both signed by ourselves and the client. All the remainder of the project steps are likely to be used, but the project manager has the responsibility of which steps are relevant to the project.
As the client you can have supreme confidence in the progress and delivery of the project, with excellent communication and visibility at regular intervals.
