Sometimes projects “go south”, “belly up”, or otherwise become mired in catastrophe. Often, those closest to it do not see the train wreck approaching, and just hope it will be all right in the end. The causes are always complex and are usually founded in bad decisions made early in the project. The outcomes: Broken budgets, blown schedules, unusable projects and/or lawsuits. Nobody’s fault, and everybody’s fault.
Project rescue is difficult and demanding. It requires the concentration of authority in a highly skilled and experienced professional project manager with formal education in architecture, engineering or construction, and decades of on-site experience.
Project rescue also requires complete confidence in the Project Rescue Manager by the Client, who will back the Manager in the tough decisions that are inevitably required.
PSMJ’s global project management expertise can provide rescue strategies to overcome (or at the least minimise) the delay effects and develop a rescue plan that provides the Client with a realistic program to get the project back on track.
We truly hope that you never need Project Rescue. If you’ve followed PSMJ’s advice, you won’t. But if you haven’t, send us an SOS. If we get it in time, we’ll get you out of there alive.
