Project Management

Our project managers partner with you to keep your project ON TIME, ON SCHEDULE, and of the HIGHEST QUALITY.

 

 

At e-VANS we specialize in project management. Our broad footprint of experience and knowledge includes 80+ combined years of projects including civil engineering and construction, telecommunications, IT/IS, education/research, infrastructure, commercial, industrial, transportation, and provincial/municipal government projects.

    At e-VANS, our Project Management Methodology goes beyond industry standards to provide the best value-added service for your project. Our project managers are certified by the Project Management Institute and employ many value-added techniques including:

     

    Issues Logs: These logs are used to proactively communicate status and resolution of key issues, which ensures clarity within the project team.

     

    Decision Logs: The logs formally track the decision process and document key project agreements. They help project teams to avoid revisiting previously-resolved issue and to quickly bring new personnel up to speed. 

     

    Project Status Reporting: The project manager should be aware of all key issues as they happen, long before preparing the status report. Status reporting should be completed by the project manager or delegated resources on regular, predetermined intervals and should take up no more than 10% of the project manager’s time.

     

    Steering Committee: Every project should have some form of Steering Committee to guide key strategic decisions. The project owner, executive sponsor, and/or the key stakeholders participate in the steering committee.

     

    RACI Charts: These charts define who is Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, and Informed (RACI) for each project element. The charts are helpful for defining roles and responsibilities as the basis for project communications.

     

    Effective Meetings: Effective meetings should include an invitation sent by the chair with an objective, agenda, list of attendees, date, time, location and logistics. They are followed with timely minutes with assigned action items and due dates.

     

    Lessons Learned: We believe it is important to document the lessons learned in each project for the benefit of the project team members and the owner's organization as they work on similar projects in the future.
