Too many independent procedures.
Finding one process to unify all project-related procedures.
Developed a best practice Project Management Process Model.
A large Canadian Nuclear Generating Plant, which generates approximately 4,700 MW of electricity, was facing the problem of having many independent procedures. Procept was hired to develop a best practice Project Management Process Model and easy-to-use supporting Project Management Guideline.
Procept used a phased approach to help the nuclear generating plant with its Project Management Methodology and developed:
Phase 1: PM Process Model — Procept put together a checklist organized by project life cycle phases and consisting of project management tasks, deliverables, and quality gates.
Phase 2: PM Process Guide — The Generating Plant already had many procedures, but needed a guide to lead project managers through the process. The Guide describes each step in the process, who is responsible, when it should be done, and what procedure and forms are applicable. It also identified quality gates in the process to clarify approvals and identify go / no go points.
