Better programme and financial planning
Review of supplier plans and internal planning procedures to improve accuracy of the collective programme planning and the derived financial forecasts.
Banedanmark’s Signalling Programme was experiencing a range of challenges related to its planning processes and the accuracy of the derived financial forecasts. On behalf of Banedanmark, Implement Consulting Group completed a review of the Signalling Programme’s supplier plans, planning practices and the derived impact on the financial reporting and forecasting.
The main purpose of the review was to investigate whether:
In close dialogue with the client, Implement Consulting Group initiated a thorough review of the Signalling Programme’s planning processes with a clear focus on the current quality of the monthly supplier plans/schedules, as these are the foundation of the collective programme planning. Secondly, Implement Consulting Group provided insights into the current quality of the internal planning processes. Some of the key findings were:
The review documented the current quality of the planning data across several major projects. Furthermore, the review improved the transparency of current planning processes across the programme and provided an improved foundation for the upcoming financial forecast.
Following the review, the Central Planning unit has instigated several initiatives to align planning practices across the projects. The new planning initiatives aim to support improved ways of reporting on the overall progress of the Signalling Programme while improving the overall correctness of the project plans.
