Project Management

Planet Innovation has extensive formal project schedule and budget management processes in place and has an excellent track record in managing and delivering projects to schedule and budgets.

We have an “open book” policy, working transparently with our clients to manage project expenditure.

We will recommend early in the project where we believe our clients should employ people directly to deliver them a longer term benefit. Key examples are in the areas of product management (to manage technical file and design history file), software (to manage ongoing software upgrades), and manufacturing.

A significant proportion of our business has been with international clients where we work very effectively and efficiently across multiple projects, managing the distance and time-zone differences through high quality communication strategies.

We frequently work in partnership, both embedding client personnel into our organisation and embedding our personnel into our clients’ organisations.

Examples include:
  • A client placed a team of 2 software engineers into our building for 6 months to aid in knowledge transfer.
  • We have provided mechanical engineering staff at client sites for months at a time to assist with design transfer to production.
  • One of our Directors worked in a management role with a client 3 days per week for 12 months, managing the commercialization phase and reporting to their board of directors on a monthly basis.
