Project Planning Training
Financial Losses, Penalties and Deadlines are a Reality in any Project
Don’t work with penalties and financial losses breathing down your neck…
Expand Your Time and Resources
We help lay a strong foundation for your project with a well trained team who know the principles inside out.
Of course your project is fast paced! Which is why our highly experienced team makes things happen quickly and efficiently.
With excellent skill you are covered on all sides with both speed and precision.
No body shop. No middle man. Just a passionate team whose concern is for the success of your project.
When your project’s size or budget cannot justify a full time planner, you want solutions that can benefit both your project and your budget.
SOUND PROJECT PLANNING PRINCIPLES – since 1983
Profactaplan’s founding member received project planning training from American based Combustion Engineering during the construction of their flagship Kendal Power Station. He has refined his project planning skill over the years from doing it by hand, to mastering software, to sharing that knowledge through project planning training. This training, based on international project planning principles is what has birthed our team of top notch project planners.
MENTORSHIP MODEL – FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE CLIENT
Because our service is based on a mentorship model, Celito Graça was able to build delay fragnets into a schedule (an advanced project planning skill) while deployed, at the time, as a Junior Project Planner, with only a few months experience. This meant our client had the benefit of an advanced project planning skill, included in the provided service, without having to pay for a Senior Project Planner.
OUR CLIENT’S SUCCESSES ARE OUR SUCCESSES
Together with our client, IWC, the Sasol Cooling Tower Tray Replacement project was finished two months early, something almost unheard of in the projects industry of today. This resulted in the project receiving Sasol’s internal project of the year award.
SAVING OUR CLIENT’S CASH FLOW WITH FORECASTS
In various cases advanced warning has been given to our clients in relation to cash flow issues that could be avoided. Many heeded the warning and reaped the benefits. It has happened that these were ignored, only to find our warnings painfully accurate.
DEALING WITH CLAIMS THROUGH PROJECT PLANNING
We have won construction claims to the amount in excess R400 million for our clients with proper project controls, inclusive of project planning, cost control and quantification, and record keeping.
Logikal’s Project Controls Survey shows that organisations who don’t make use of project performance information (i.e. project planning and project controls), have an average project success rate of 7%. Those who do make use of project planning and project controls have an average project success rate of 68%.
In the uncertain world of projects, so much value can be added by using proper project planning.
