Cogent offers project planning services to assist with the development of project scope, schedule and budget. Cogent works closely with the client and liaises with all stakeholders to evaluate technology options and define the specific engineering, equipment and construction requirements.
> Project Requirements Definition
Project requirement definition requires a progressive elaboration approach, starting with high-level definition of the project scope. Cogent will work closely with all stakeholders to collaboratively uncover the project needs, before drilling down to a technical approach and finding appropriate solutions that satisfy those project needs.
> Scope and Budget Definition
Poor scope definition during the planning stage is one of the most frequent contributing factors to project cost overruns. Cogent’s team of project managers can help you determine and document the specific project goals, deliverables, tasks, costs and deadlines to deliver more predictable outcomes on projects.
> Project Plan Development
Leveraging project management best practices, Cogent will work with you to develop a comprehensive project plan that describes and guides the execution, management and control of the project. The project plan documents the scope, cost and schedule baselines and facilitates communication among stakeholders.
> Risk Analysis
Project risk analysis and management is a critical part of project planning that increases the likelihood of successfully completing a project that meets cost, time and performance objectives. Cogent will work closely with the client to identify risks specific to the particular project (including operational, project, financial or technical risks) and evaluate their potential impact on project goals. This helps justify project decisions, enables effective management of risks and increases overall understanding of project by all parties.
