Contractor performance improvement

Contractor performance improvement

TacminMadini’s expertise has assisted numerous clients with contractor performance improvement. The process we follow is based on standard Project Management principles that are typically applied by contractors during the construction of a facility. We establish a Project Management Office (PMO) to oversee and standardise the project management process, define the scope and objectives of each project, develop a project plan for each project, assign roles and responsibilities for each project, and implement and monitor the project plans. The process below provides a high-level overview that has been successfully rolled out during contract mining operational performance improvement assignments with consistent achievement of the objectives.

Establish a Project Management Office

PMOs are groups within businesses, government agencies, or other organizations that maintain and define standards for project management. A PMO can be responsible for multiple projects across the organization. The PMO has several functions, like ensuring that projects are completed on time, within budget, and to the required standard. The main tasks include:

  • Project planning: documenting steps, scope, and milestones for completing a project.

  • Project process improvement: outlining how a project's processes can be improved in the future.

  • Project resourcing: allocating resources to complete a project, including people, financing, software, and materials.

  • Project monitoring: tracking a project's metrics, progress, and tasks to make sure the project will be completed on time and within budget.

  • Project control: a set of processes for tracking potential threats, issues, and opportunities for enabling project decision-making.

The PMO also provides support to project managers in the form of templates, best practices, and training. In some cases, the PMO may also be responsible for resource allocation and management.
