Project QuickStart

Project QuickStart

Your Situation

  • If a project seems to be stuck in the planning phase, the team may be wrestling with unclear objectives or competing agendas. Ask questions about the purpose of the project and the stakeholders. If you need expert facilitators, we would love to assist you.
  • Sometimes design engineers skip over planning and go straight to the design phase. This omission will show up later in the project life cycle. If a project misses a milestone or spends money faster than expected, inadequate planning may be the culprit. It’s never too late to create a solid plan. Without one, you can count on lots of rework.
