While project managers are important in many business-related endeavors – such as launching a new product, marketing products and services, running a recruitment campaign, and the list goes on – there is one activity in particular where hiring a qualified project manager is absolutely vital: when you’re embarking on an office renovation project. Here are the 3 key reasons why:
1. Managing Multiple Relationships
If you thought that overseeing a residential renovation project was challenging and at times overwhelming, then it’s a proverbial “walk in the part” compared to what’s involved in the average office renovation project!
That’s because there are many relationships to effectively and efficiently manage with: project consultants, interior designers, architects, sub-code officers, MEP engineers, IT consultants, furniture dealers and general contractors. A qualified and experienced project manager that specializes in office renovation projects will ensure that these relationships are properly managed, monitor – and when necessary, controlled and corrected.
2. Accurate, Accessible Reports and Information
As you can imagine, each of the specialists noted above have their own systems and processes – which makes sense. After all, architects view an office renovation project differently than IT consultants, and what one party views as an opportunity another may regard as an obstacle.
A project manager ensures that you regularly receive accurate reports and information in an accessible manner, so that you’re not left worried or wondering about what’s going on – or just as importantly, what isn’t going on, but should be. You can use this clear, actionable intelligence to make informed executive-level decisions to keep your office renovation project on track.
3. Driving Project Success
And last but certainly not least, project managers are do much more than capture information, govern relationships and manage communications. They add immense value to the project by actively tracking schedules, resources, budgets, opportunities, risks, legal issues and more – and they do this on a daily basis.
It’s all part of their responsibility and obligation to ensure that your office renovation project reaches the finish line on time, in budget and in scope. The only surprise that you should experience is just how professional and organized the experience was from concept to complication.
