Project Management
Introduction
Roke Manor Research (RMR) believe that excellent project management is vital to the success of our customers
projects, and we provide a comprehensive training and development programme for all our Project Managers. We
run an internal Project Manager Accreditation scheme coordinated by a cross-company team of experienced Project
Management Champions, to develop and expand our pool of project management expertise. The programme
combines formal training with mentored hands-on experience of running development projects, and culminates with
external accreditation of participants by the Association for Project Management.
Supporting our project management skills is a comprehensive and flexible set of management techniques and
processes covering the whole project lifecycle from initial bidding through implementation to customer support.
These techniques and processes are subject to continuous review and improvement as part of the companys
commitment to business excellence.
Project Managers have access to a selection of both industry standard 3rd party tools such as Pertmaster,
@Risk, etc, and internally-developed applications, with which to support the successful administration and control
of projects. These tools, which are largely computer based, facilitate the effective interaction between the
different functional departments engaged in the management of a wide variety of small and large-scale projects.

Customer
communication
RMR seeks always to ensure the
Customer is kept well-informed of
progress on thei r contract. The
frequency and nature of progress
reports can be arranged to meet
Customer needs, and may include
video- and telephone-conferencing
as wel l as wri tten reports or
traditional face-to-face meetings.
Planning and
monitoring progress
Project plans are created for all
projects using proprietary tools.
Templates and guidance tailored
speci fi cal l y to RMR have been
established and are available to all
Project Managers, backed up by
regular internal training courses
whi ch cover the pri nci pl es and
practice of project planning.
The Proj ect Manager reports
progress on a monthl y basi s,
through hi s Busi ness Uni t
Management to the RMR Board.
Thi s i ncl udes progress agai nst
milestones, any resourcing issues
encountered, any risks envisaged
and feedback from customer
meetings. In this way, the business
management can determi ne
whether any higher-level actions
are required.
Risk management
Risks (both technical and non-technical) are identified and evaluated during project planning, and
prevention/mitigation options identified. Three-point estimates are generated for all major programmes to quantify
the effects of the risks on cost and timescale, and the programme analysed using proprietary tools to produce
probability distributions of cost and completion date.
Throughout the life of the project, positive action is taken to identify and manage new risks, and the above
techniques are applied to assist in the minimisation of their probability and impact. The Risk Register is regularly
reviewed and updated to ensure progress in risk reduction is monitored and evaluated.
