The following describes the Project Implementation Methodology employed by Rifle-Shot in the implementation of projects. This methodology is based on recognized Project Management principles, drawing particularly on PMBOK and the Prince2 methodology and the world-class tool infrastructure that Rifle-Shot has invested in.
Customer projects are either stand-alone or more often part of a multi-phased portfolio of business improvement interventions covering a single or multiple sites. Where multiple sites are envisaged it is usually desirable to establish a base blueprint for the company and for this to be tested in one or more pilot sites before being rolled out across the organisation. The benefits of a common blueprint far outweigh the time and effort to establish in the roll-out phase.
Where complex business transformation is envisaged, it is desirable to split the project into defined phases with milestones and goals and run these as a portfolio of projects.
Each project is divided into a number of processes or phases, each phase having its own identity and characteristics, the respective phases are:

A Project Schedule is compiled detailing activities within each phase with activity duration, start and end dates of each activity, and resources allocated to each of the activities. The above diagram is applicable to the overall project, as well as to individual activities or key deliverables within a project.
