Project managers in the real estate sector face unique challenges. Their assignments can vary widely in type, size and complexity. For example, they could be asked to manage the construction of new builds, undertake refits, upgrades, or major interior overhauls, or to be responsible for facilities management, to name just a few.
Given that project managers often have several jobs to handle at the same time, they need to be able to resolve three major issues:
- Keeping information on all assignments up-to-date and available in one place
- Managing workflow in a way that provides the right information to the right people at the right time
- Choosing the steps and deliverables within the methodology, or life cycle, that is right for each type of project.
CQC’s Corporate Real Estate Project Framework helps project managers deal effectively with all three problems. Working with an organisation’s existing project management and other software and technology resources, CQC’s Framework collects data across multiple projects and presents it to the people who need it most in an easy-to-use format. With everyone working off the same page with accurate, up-to-date information, collaboration is simple and the chances of completing a job on time and within budget is greatly increased. And because the manager can set the governance level for each job separately, each project has the life cycle that is right for its size and complexity.
“CQC’s Corporate Real Estate Project Framework does not reinvent the wheel. Instead, it acts as the hub that holds all of the spokes of the wheel in place and makes it travel smoothly in the right direction”
The Framework helps project managers to keep on top of multiple projects through dashboards. It makes accurate and timely communication with global stakeholders a reality.
It brings industry best practice to each job because it has been developed in collaboration with real practitioners. And it both utilises standard PPM tools and integrates with existing software, such as SAP and SharePoint – thereby leveraging previous IT investment.
Businesses that adopt CQC’s Corporate Real Estate Project Framework usually see a return on investment within a year.
