Processes and tools are often cited as being the panacea for project management delivery, however, critical to project management success are the softer skills associated with people and organisational nuances which achieve results.Typically, we are appointed at the beginning of a project and will assist the client in developing the project brief and then selecting, appointing and coordinating the project team. We will usually then represent the client throughout the full development process managing the inputs from the client, consultants, contractors and other stakeholders. bcuris offers a range of general project management services to ensure your project is delivered with a professional confidence.
