The Hextuple Constraints of Contracted Project Management

It would almost be simple if Project Managers (PMs) only had the classic three constraints to balance (scope/time/cost). Today’s PMs declare success not only when they deliver their projects on time and within budget, but also when they meet their clients’ quality requirements, result in no harm to the workers, and are in compliance with applicable internal & regulatory HSE requirements.

Adding to this that the resources to perform the projects are often external to the PMs’ organisation, and you get a complex new reality of PMs: A hextuple-constraint framework. 

Zero-Harm Projects:

  • Start with no omission of any of your HSE requirements, unequivocally communicated to your contractors.
  • Have the latest applicable requirements readily available to contractors
  • Automatically confirm that at every entry of workers is 100% compliant with all your training & professional qualification requirements
  • Interconnect with your other IT systems, such as interlocking with gate access, feeding workers qualification & time with a cost control system, interconnecting with your ERP, etc.

In this webinar, learn how technology makes it possible to automate and integrate project management along every aspect of the contractor management process, including all HSE requirements to be met by contractors.

Learn how you can directly improve project cost by having complete visibility on worked hours & justification of hourly rates billed.
