Fachmann and Hunter is a UK based Private Research & Development consultancy, with the capacity to operate Remote and onsite Project Management Office (PMO).
Our current focus is on offering our services to indigenous and international businesses / investors in emerging markets such as those in the ECOWAS region (Economic Community Of West African States). We provide our clients with strategic and tactical solutions towards their sustained growth and operational excellence, with emphasis on innovation embedded in Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) in the emerging markets. We think of our clients and how / what technologies, people, and processes could be aligned to work effectively within their organisations.
Operational excellence is a simple concept with complex implications. Consistently doing things well across every element of the value chain is clear enough in principle. But it is a moving target: To create and maintain competitive advantage or to reduced competitive disadvantage, successful enterprises, and Project-Based organizations in particular must constantly adapt to new situations. Customers discover new needs as they come to expect better quality and lower prices. New markets emerge in an ever shrinking world. Yet, these dynamics do not alter the fundamentals of operational excellence. But they do force companies to be excellent at doing different things. Hence organizations need to be structured to create synergy between strategy, project, program and portfolio management and the project approach needs to both generate tangible value for the stockholders and be sustainable.
Consequently, based on the consideration that there is a constant need for organizations to create lean and agile temporary operations and systems for the performance of project tasks or activities, our Project Management Office (PMO) acts on behalf of our clients to this effect,to achieve sustainable positive outcomes towards success and effective implementation of growth strategy.
In addition, Traditional PMO’s base project management principles on industry-standard methodologies such as PMBOK or PRINCE2. Increasingly influential industry certification programs such as ISO9000 and the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award (MBNQA) have propelled organizations to standardize processes. Organizations around the globe are defining, borrowing and collecting best practices in process and project management and are increasingly assigning the PMO to exert overall influence and evolution of thought to continual organizational improvement.
Hence, our multidisciplinary teams which constitutes groups of professionals from diverse disciplines collaborate remotely via the internet and on-site to set up PMOs to establish structure and standardize processes to the effect as stated above. We provide comprehensive assessment and consultation towards promoting investments by the deployment and implementation of Best-Practice Project Management, alongside required business and legal services.
Our teams of Local and international experts may also fulfill a variety of additional functions on behalf of investors during and through the live time of projects. They can promote co-ordination between local agencies and Governments; provide a “checks and balances” mechanism to ensure that the interests and rights of all concerned parties are addressed; and identify service gaps and breakdowns in coordination or communication between agencies or individuals.
