Project Management – Where Detail Matters

Project Management is a management discipline in its own right, and not something to be done in a spare ten minutes, between finishing one task and starting the next.

Attention to detail is a critical aspect of successful project management. Get it wrong, and the result may well be similar to the situation expressed in this photo – a house which does not know which street it belongs to, or what its number is – which, in this case, makes for very confused posties!

The AgriChain Centre has extensive experience in scoping, initiating, managing and successfully conducting business projects in the agribusiness industry.

Recent projects have included:

  • Supplier Climate Survey for a major retail group.
  • Review of Pacific Nations Biosecurity Activities for a government agency.
  • Alignment of a returnable plastic crate (RPC) provider’s cleaning processes with current food safety regulations.

A business needs to grow or it will wither. Growth does not occur in isolation but requires planning. Planning remains a theoretical activity unless it is carried out within the framework of a business project. Project management is a skilled activity that one does not master overnight.  We can help.
