Programme and Project Management

open discussion

The fundamentals of proper Project and Programme Management are primarily focus then structure plus firm control of budgets and resources. Almost every company accepts this but many try to source these roles inappropriately by using a key member of their own company (who has other time consuming and essential duties to perform) or from the supplier (where the interests of their own company inevitably take priority). In both cases the risks of failure or overrun in costs and timescale are increased due to conflicting interests.

The service that Wengo offer is that of a focused representative of the Client and their interests. To meet this we will carry out, amongst many others, the following key activities on behalf of the business:
