Project Management

An R&D project is fundamentally different from building major waterworks or an IT project. All are challenging and all can be complicated, but what will make each of these projects successful is different in some aspects. However, the fundamentals apply across the board.

Fundamentally the approach is very similar, but once you start applying the approach you notice that what works in one case does not in other cases, or may simply not be relevant. At ATC we have a broad experience base in different application areas.

  • Definition of scope & deliverable(s)
  • Justification of project
  • Planning and operational management
  • Organisation (macro and micro)
  • Risk management
  • Managing team members
  • Managing the client
  • Research (chemical, food and electronic industries)
  • Development
  • Construction
  • Services

Project systems and approach need to be alligned to the organisation and its context. We work with clients to determine and test the approach relevant for their organisation/setting before deploying it. Examples (illustrations only):

  • projects run by co-workers on a single location vs. virtual teams that have never physically met.
  • project teams consisting of members of a single organisation, of two, or more ogranisations
  • project teams of 5 or 10 members versus teams of 500 members
  • projects lasting months or years
  • project teams whose members are fully dedicated to the project, or who typically contribute little of their time to the project
  • project teams focussing on implementation, on development or real research issues
  • project teams whose brief may change significantly over the course of the project
