Master Key Project Management Execution

In execution of Master Key lead projects, we provide the project management services necessary to plan, coordinate, manage, report, and deliver high value impactful results to our clients. Master Key’s project management methodology is based on:

▣ The Project Management Institute (PMI) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Project Management Institute Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) (ANSI/PMI 99-001-2008)
Master Key’s ISO 9001:2008 Certified Quality Management System

Master Key PMs oversee all aspects of a project — from start to finish. Our Project Managers work from a Project Management Plan (MS Project) developed collaboratively with our clients. Our project management model is shown below. In this model, the nine PMBOK® knowledge areas surround the key core to project management which is scope, schedule and resource.

Project communication – We develop plans designed to enable understanding and motivation for leadership development and the change initiatives. Critical to success of the communication plan is developing messaging that provides a “line-of-sight” linkage between the employee and the expected outcome from their work. We develop a communication plan describing how to communicate the right messages to the right people at the right time. Our plans contain communication goals, stakeholders and strategies, activities and timeframes. The purpose of our communication plans is to achieve intended project outcomes by keeping everyone informed with a consistent message.

Key project communication tasks we often execute include:

▣ Develop a list of communications stakeholders
▣ Meet with each stakeholder and identify communications needs
▣ Identify the required communications events
▣ Determine the method and frequency of communications events
▣ Allocate resources to communications events
▣ Build a communications schedule

Status reporting — Master Key PMs host periodic status and synchronization meetings with our clients and extended project teams as appropriate. During these meetings, the project manager presents a status report that includes the following details:

▣ Overview of activities per task
▣ Summary of issues, problems, and corrective actions taken, or proposed solutions/resolutions to the issues/problems
▣ Personnel gains, losses, and status
▣ Government actions or decisions or input required
▣ Schedules and plans (showing major tasks, milestones, deliverables, and planned and actual start and completion dates)
