Identify and Measure KPI’s
‘Ground Zero’ for the successful management of any Program or Project is the identification and determination of Success Measures and Key Performance Indicators. A thorough and accurate Estimate of Time, Cost, and Resources required for execution of the Project establishes the platform from which to measure Progress and Performance.
The Project Estimate serves as the basis for the Business Case ‘Go/No Go’ determination, Project Funding Approvals, and for measurement of performance and success: as such it must be both ADEQUATE and ACCURATE. Adequate in that all of the Project’s scope and deliverables are included, Assumptions are reasonable and clearly documented, Risks & Threats are considered and incorporated, and that Industry Benchmarks and Internal Performance indices and history is utilized appropriately. Accuracy demands not only mathematical correctness, but that a Range of values is presented appropriate to each specific Phase of the Project.
Development of an Estimate represents a multi-step, complex, and iterative compilation and analysis of input from many data sources and persons. To ensure the quality of an Estimate, a review protocol or process is required to determine adequacy and accuracy and that the Estimate meets project and organizational requirements. With Projects increasing in complexity, cost and strategic importance, it is imperative to have confidence in the accuracy and adequacy of your capital cost estimate – whether conceptual, semi-detailed or detailed construction ready. Given the cost implications of design changes, allowances, impacts from escalation and inflation and the uncertainties around risk and contingency, a good understanding of the adequacy and accuracy of your capital cost estimates is vital for project success.
