Primarily, Harris Pye’s project management and execution of various projects undergo our proven 5 phase IPECC project execution and delivery principle as outlined below. (IPECC – Initiation, Planning, Execution, Control and Completion)

Phase 1: Project Initiation

  1. The initiation stage of any project includes accurate depiction of value and feasibility studies.
  2. This includes the formation of a business case with adequate needs justification exercises including sufficient feasibility assessment of a projects’ delivery and execution to be completed within reasonable time and cost.
  3. The key objective will be the provision of a project charter – to clearly define the scope of what Harris Pye’s project team will deliver on completion.
  4. This phase usually culminates into a Kick Off Meeting spearheaded by Harris Pye’s Project Manager and the relevant project stakeholders in order to clearly define the project goals, schedule, processes and the chain of communication.

Phase 2: Project Planning

  1. Upon project acceptance and approval, the key objective of this phase would be to deliver the project schedule.
  2. This serves, for the customer and Harris Pye’s project management team, the guidelines towards the project execution and control phases.
  3. The project schedule includes every component associated with the project execution including costs, risk assessments, resources, base timelines and critical path activities.
  4. This includes clear definition of detailed project activities and scope via work breakdown structure (WBS) dividing the project into activities, milestones and deliverables.
  5. The project schedule, using either Gantt Chart or industry standard Primavera schedule, will be distributed across the teams and stakeholders for project adherence.

Phase 3: Project Execution

  1. The project manager is solely responsible for execution of the project activities and milestones to produce the deliverables to the client’s satisfaction by following the execution plan created through adequate resource allocation measures as needed.
  2. The key objective of this phase will be the delivery of the project execution plan, wherein the project management team (PMT) will identify and mitigate risks, deal with issues and incorporate any changes dynamically throughout the project life cycle.

Phase 4: Project Control and Monitoring

  1. Occurring simultaneously with the execution phase of the project, this involves monitoring the progress and performance of the project to adherence to schedule and budget.
  2. The key objective of this phase will be the delivery of the quality control plan, wherein stringent Harris Pye quality control procedures are applied to guarantee quality assurance and on time delivery and completion.
  3. The typical triple constraints faced by most projects related to time, cost, and scope. Harris Pye PMT will regulate within the quality control plan setting firm project controls to ensure quality project execution and deliverables are maintained throughout the project life cycle.

Phase 5: Project Closure

  1. The key objective of this phase will be the completion of the final deliverables being delivered to the client / customer.
  2. Upon approval, handover and signed acceptance, final documentation will be completed, collated and handed over according to customer’s satisfaction.
  3. Project manager then proceeds with post-mortem analysis with the PMT to evaluate the lessons learned from the project.
