> Document Control
Cogent understands the importance of an effective document management process for the successful execution of a project. Our team has established standards, procedures and industry best practices to manage all documents during the life cycle of a project, while also conforming to the specific requirements of each client. Our cloud-hosted website manages all project documentation and communications while ensuring that version control, workflows, reporting and collaboration tools are in place to maintain a high standard of project delivery.
> Scope and Change Management
Many projects fail due to poor scope and change management. Cogent offers a focused and professional approach to ensure that the scope of your project is properly defined and controlled. We recognize that change is a key component to maximizing the strategic benefits of your project, and will apply rigorous scope control to manage various change drivers such as changing priorities, business needs and organizational structure.
> Quality Compliance
The most important decisions regarding the quality of a delivered project are made during the design and planning stages. Ensuring and tracking compliance with quality specifications is a vital project control function. Cogent utilizes standards-based quality assurance/control methodologies to develop detailed technical specifications, verification test plans and track compliance activities throughout the project lifecycle.
> Risk Management
Risk management is a continuous project controls function and is the best means for mitigating project catastrophes. In collaboration with the client, Cogent will help identify various sources of risks, determine the appropriate risk response, and develop contingency plans early in the project. As the project progresses, Cogent will closely monitor, communicate and track all risks and implement the right response to ensure that the project continues to run smoothly.
