Once your great idea has been proven to be feasible with funding secured and community and partner support in place, you are ready to make it happen! However, what if the finished product is not quite what you had in mind?  What about if your funding runs out early or your support melts away? This is where sound project management is needed.  The delivery of your project can be affected by six variables – costs, timescales, quality, scope, risk and benefits.  Project management is about controlling these so that your project is delivered in line with your plan and you end up with what you intended!

Scott B Sullivan Associates is well versed in project management, ranging from small, local community projects to large, complex projects of over £1million with regional impact.  We use the PRINCE2 methodology as it is familiar and trusted within the public, private and charitable sectors and can be tailored according to your organisational requirements.
