The start-up of a significant project can place extraordinary demands on an organization as it assembles the range of expertise required to establish the business case, define project scope, develop project plans, document system specifications, communicate with stakeholders, and obtain project and contract approvals.
The Project Management Practice is capable of providing all of the services listed below and its core services centre on providing subject matter experts knowledgeable in any or all of the traditional PMI knowledge areas or government departments’ project delivery methodologies. In most instances, these services are provided by individuals or by small teams to fill a specific project team role. Lansdowne’s focus is on providing skilled resources (task based) vice turn-key project services (solutions based). From the technically complex such as Project Managers for the Vancouver Olympics, G8 and G20 Summits, Air Cargo Registration, and Communications Systems Development to customizing Day Care Governance Structures, Lansdowne can meet project challenges of all types and sizes.
