Project Delivery Services

One of the main reasons why projects fail is due to a lack of capacity. Whether it is a lack of project management capacity, temporary resource capacity or a resource needed to fill a gap, we can assist. ProjectLink provides temporary, experienced and professional project resources to organisations who have “gaps” within their project teams. All our project consultants go through an extensive assessment to analyse their capabilities before they are assigned to a client.

We provide the following services:

Portfolio Manager

A Portfolio Manager is responsible for managing groups of projects, programs and/or sub-portfolios. They focus on understanding the impact of numerous business interventions on the bottom line of the business. Strategy translation, trade-offs, scenario planning, portfolio balancing, and benefits measurements all form part of the role. The Portfolio Manager monitors the progress of the portfolio and reports back to senior management.

Program Manager

A Program Manager ensures that the overarching business goal of a group of individual projects, that all provide shared benefits toward the goal, is achieved. The Program Manager focusses on the integration of the benefits and manages the interdependencies that might exist between the individual projects. The Program Manager is responsible for the overall delivery of the program.

Project Controls Manager

This function is responsible for controlling the project. Project Controls Managers monitor and control the project cost and schedule outcomes of the project and ensure that planned work is on track. They are responsible for the monitoring and control of quality work progress as well as cost control. They make sure that everything is one time and within budget.

Projects Planner & Scheduler

We provide experienced Project Planners and Project Schedulers that assist with the development and optimisation of your project schedule. Poor project planning can compromise successful project delivery and knowledgeable project planners are hard to find. Look no further, our consultants provide quality project planning services from inception through to execution and closeout. We can assist with all your planning and scheduling needs such as; scope definition, schedule development, consistent monitoring and updating of project performance measurement, progress reports, recommendations, and much more.

Risk Manager

A Project Risk Manager manages the project risks within a project team. They are responsible for identifying, defining, qualifying, and quantifying project risks. Selection of risk strategies and development of risk response plans also form part of the role. Skilled Risk Managers will utilise leading practices and tools to manage and control the project risks throughout the project life cycle. Risk Managers are especially valuable to clients executing large and complex capital projects where risks proliferate quickly.

Project Administrator

A Project Administrator takes the administration burden off the Project Managers and project team members. The Project Administrator provides support for all general project communication, document management, arrangement of meetings, travel, accommodation, keeping of minutes, maintaining project registers, and project team and office housekeeping. A project cannot be successful without efficient project administration. A project is destined to failure without good project administration due to disorganisation and inefficiency.

Cost Controller

The Cost Controller is responsible for controlling the project’s cost. These services include planning for costs, cost estimating, budget development and control, cost projecting, analysis, and reporting. The Cost Controller plays a key role in understanding whether the project will come in on budget and/or when the project’s cost trajectory is going wrong.

Estimator

The Estimator is responsible for ensuring the quality and accuracy of a cost estimate. A cost estimate is a quantified expectation of how many resources are required to complete a capital project in a certain currency. The cost estimate is a key input into the financial model which helps inform the decision makers on whether to proceed with a project.

Contracts Manager

A Contracts Manager is responsible for managing all contracts with internal and/or external parties during a project. This includes ensuring compliance and negotiating the terms and conditions. When changes do arise, upon agreement from the Contracts Manager, these should be clearly documented throughout the life cycle of the project.

Document Controller

A Document Controller takes responsibility for the orderly flow and storage of project documents. They report to Project Controllers or Project Managers and are responsible for establishing the document control processes and procedures on the project. Once these processes and procedures are implemented, they enforce that all relevant stakeholders adhere to the stipulated standards. They apply document configuration management and ensure that documents are correctly named, numbered, stored.

Junior Project Manager

A Junior Project Manager manages your smaller projects, coordinating and integrating the project scope, and work. They take responsibility for agreed upon project scope and deliverables and use leading practice tools and techniques to develop the project work breakdown structure (WBS), schedule, budget, and registers. They track progress, write project progress reports, and keep track of project issues, decisions, and risks.

Senior Project Manager

A Senior Project Manager can manage complex capital projects and lead project teams. They align the project with the business strategy and ensure that project stakeholders are kept up to date on project progress through proper communication. The Senior Project Manager takes full responsibility for the development of the project’s scope, schedule, and budget, as well as the management of project risks.

Business Analyst

A Business Analyst analyses and defines the organisation’s requirement, identifies proposed solutions, and recommends a way forward to enhance the business. They focus on organisational efficiency improvement by reducing complexity and inefficiency (costs) or by leveraging already existing platforms to create synergies to grow and improve the business (revenue).
