Managing successful projects to exceed your expectations.
As projects involve many different stakeholders, Yokogawa understands that the project journey must be well-defined in order to keep up with a tight agenda. Our team members strive for frequent communication, good status reporting, and up to date project schedules. We help set and communicate expectations with our customers. Good project management evolves around several core stages: effective reviewing, clear judgement and decision making to minimize any grey areas, and motivation and goal setting to make sure every team member stays sharp and most importantly, maintain regular communication on the progress of the project.
Our Project Management Approach
All stakeholders involved in projects are looking for predictability in outcomes and results. With our proactive and documented Risk Management approach, we are able to reduce risks and implement necessary mitigation strategies.
Management of Complexity
As the world we live in becomes increasingly faster, smaller, and more interconnected, projects have become more complex. Project complexity knows different areas like team composition, clarity of problem and technical solution, constraints, geographical spread etc. Our project management teams identify and analyze project complexity and manage these complexities accordingly.
Single point of contact
Within Yokogawa we adopt the Single Point of Contact model (SPOC). Our project managers act as the primary liaison by creating and managing a successful relationship between all people involved in the project: customers, suppliers, and team members (external and internal). All benefit from this by keeping communication simple and effective.
Management of Change
By way of applying a long range of inhouse experiences and lessons learned, our Project Management teams find ways to manage the effects of change against scope, timelines, budget and quality.
