Management and gateway processes.

Developing project and program solutions to strategic need is a critical in developing infrastructure systems. These processes connect strategic plans to a solution or solutions, ready for procurement. Decisions made during this period significantly affect the scope, cost and effectiveness of the solution/s.

During infrastructure development there is a strong focus on strategic need, objectives, benefits, options and solutions that best meet the strategic need.
A range of professional services and outputs need to be coordinated and sophisticated analysis and selection processes utilised to assist decision making.

Major infrastructure brings great benefits but also has impacts. Project leaders must be responsive to ever-changing political, social and economic factors. In times of scarce capital resources, major public and private sector organisations will increasingly seek to secure substantial value-for-money outcomes from their capital investment decisions. Many organisations are looking for proven ways to drive optimise capital investment programs and to secure improved customer service efficiencies.

These processes require highly specialised management skills, and external executive assistance is sometimes required to quickly identify improved ways of planning and prioritising capital investment programs and in optimising customer service outcomes.

RPS  brings skills and experience in strategy development and implementation, investment governance and compliance arrangements, investment planning and asset management, tools for effective reporting and decision making, and commercial advice and transaction processes.

We understand that for a project to be successful, it’s not enough simply to manage your project competently, and deliver a good quality product. You must make sure that you have identified the right business requirements, created an achievable business case, put strong governance into place, managed a high-quality implementation and focused on achieving the benefits.
