Project setup or recovery

At CBO we use our tried-and-tested methods to make sure you have the building blocks needed for a successful project. Our experience has shown that these building blocks need to be in place when recovering a struggling project or setting up a new one.

A CBO project establishes key factors needed for project success, including:

  • Structured governance
  • Realistic planning and scheduling
  • Effective risk management
  • Commitment from leadership and team

Once established, the project can be handed back to your business or managed by one of our experienced CBO Project Managers.

Best Practice and Accreditation

We are passionate about delivering high-quality and reliable project services using established and best-practice project methodologies. As a result, our project methodology is aligned with the chartered body for the project profession, the Association of Project Management (APM).

We are committed to embedding good project management across the Channel Islands and continue to promote this through our chartered and qualified team.
