Getting things done without taking your eye off the job
Our Project Management team has years of experience helping healthcare businesses achieve programme and project goals without the pain of diverting internal resources.
Time pressed organisations struggle to focus on strategic estate issues.
Teams are constantly sidetracked by issues that require a reactive approach. Internal people are delegated to cope. This takes them away from their day job, which frustrates them, the project isn’t managed well, and so costs spiral, including legal and other professional expenses.
Without the necessary experience or sufficient time to deal with the management challenges for the project, internal people can sometimes struggle to quantify progress. Or there may be pressure keep their head down until the problem is so bad that fire-fighting takes the place of management.
When you’re under pressure to bring projects in on time and cost, outsourcing project management can be a prudent way to use your budget.
Especially when you outsource to experts who understand your business and whose priority is to work as an integral member of your in-house team
We’re often seconded to work within the business, where we get a clearer idea of the issues and see where savings and efficiencies can be made. As well as giving us a real insight to the project, we’re able to share our perspective on similar projects with other organisations.
In a typical project the links with Capsticks’ lawyers will involve capital projects, negotiating side developments, or constructing facilities you might be building or relocating. By having an overview of the project we can coordinate and direct all of the necessary expertise across the project team and also help minimise unnecessary professional expenses or project overruns.
An acute trust wants to develop a radiology facility on its site, which is being procured by another provider organisation. The project involves negotiating commercial terms between the parties, preparing a business case for the trust, inputting on instructions to the lawyers and professional team, coordinating the construction programme for the building, organising the equipment for the facility and making sure it connects to roadways, power and communications.
The earlier we’re involved the more efficiencies we can make. At the initiation stage we can help define the project more precisely. We then mange the project through the planning stage to execution of the work and closure – so no loose ends are left to tie up resource at a later stage.
Effective project management saves unnecessary duplication of effort. Our work with clients saves them money at every stage of a project and our perspective adds value to the work.
As a team we’re able to resource any size of project with a consistent level of service and expertise. Many of our clients already have a very good relationship with the Capsticks legal team – and we can build on that trust with a well-run project through our project management team.
With Capsticks, you’re not outsourcing your programme or project management to a faceless organisation – but to an organisation you trust and know.
In short we:
- Allows your internal team to get on with what they’re best at
- Scopes project more accurately for cost, risk and timing
- Reduces unnecessary professional costs by focusing resources
- Delivers project more efficiently
