Project Management And Planning

Project management is carefully planning and organizing an effort to accomplish a successful project. 

A project is a one-time effort that produces a specific result, for example, a building or a major new computer system. This is in contrast to a program, which is 1) an ongoing process, such as a quality control program, or 2) an activity to manage a series of multiple projects together. 

Project management includes developing a project plan, defining and confirming the project goals and objectives, identifying tasks and how goals will be achieved, quantifying the resources needed, and determining budgets and timelines for completion. It also includes managing the implementation of the project plan, along with operating regular 'controls' to ensure that there is accurate and objective information on 'performance' relative to the plan, and the mechanisms to implement recovery actions where necessary.

Projects usually follow major phases or stages (with various titles for these), including feasibility, definition, project planning, implementation, evaluation and support/maintenance.

Overview of Project Planning

Project planning includes specifying the overall goals to be achieved by the project, phases of the project, the objectives associated with each goal, responsibilities to achieve each objective. Planning might also include specifying milestones or deliverables to be produced, and timelines for achieving the objectives and milestones. 

Sounds like a mouthful yet every step in the process has a vital role for a successful outcome. When asking for funding from other people, foundations, or the community proper planning is vital to establish trust for overall stewardship of funds. Our Staff will guide your organization on a successful planning process.   

Planning & Projects

Bender Consulting believes strongly that the path to organizational success starts with planning. Whether it be at the agency or program level, having a road map in hand is the best way to know how you can reach your goals, and how to know where you're at on the journey. We can help.

Our services include:


Strategic planning — a comprehensive process to address your
    organization's development, and plan how it will achieve its goals and needs
    over a given period of time.

Logic models — a method that "starts with the end in mind" and uses
    outcomes as the means for determining program methods, required resources,
    and evaluation techniques.

Resource development — combining budgets and financial information with
     a knowledge of how to earn or raise the funds and capital necessary for
     organizational stability and growth.

Communications (brochures, flyers, annual reports, Web sites) — assessing
    and refining the methods your organization uses to promote itself and state its
    value to the community, clients, and supporters.
