On Site Support

Mosaic offers on-site training and support focusing on the implementation of practices and procedures to optimize the way the project controls processes are used as a tool to assist in developing effective schedules to plan and control time, resources and costs on your project(s). Our consultants work with the project team members (or project office staff) to build, monitor and report on ‘live’ project schedules.

Mosaic’s consultancy has two key objectives:

  • Assist in developing an effective schedule and implementing effective schedule control processes for the project or business (including to the extent necessary: time, resources and cost; planning, updating and control).
  • Transfer the necessary skills and know how to the in-house team members responsible for the on-going use and maintenance of the schedules and systems. Mosaic’s involvement on-site is designed to taper off as in-house skills and confidence build, our overall commitment is planned to meet the specific requirements of an organization and adjusted based on actual experience.

Mosaic’s on-site support can be augmented with both formal software training courses and project management training courses (see more on our training options).

Typically, our consultant will have a fairly intense involvement with the team at the beginning of the process (ranging up to a full time commitment). Once the overall system and procedures are established to the satisfaction of the host organization, visits are scaled back as in-house skills are developed. Eventually, all that is needed to maintain skills and schedule quality is an occasional visit for an overall ‘health-check’ (typically scheduled at two or three monthly intervals) and the occasional telephone support to assist with a specific problem.

The on-going involvement of our consultants with the team allows Mosaic to provide effective short term assistance to help with peak workloads and staff shortages; we are already familiar with the businesses, its procedures and people. Where appropriate one-on-one mentoring is provided Mosaic’s consultants have high levels of skill in the use of project control tools and training.skills transfer.
