Increasing Project Profitability: Part 3 – Budget Management

moneybox

Just as scope needs to be managed closely to ensure that unplanned work is not hitting the budget and just as resources need to be closely guarded and managed to ensure that they are focused on the important tasks, it is also necessary to continually stay on top of the project budget. All three of these concepts are intertwined, but the best way to ensure that none of these three items are killing the project financially is to be monitoring the project budget on a continual basis. Let’s consider these three steps to effectively and efficiently keep the project on track through proper budget management

In Part 2 of this three-part series on increasing project profitability, we’ll examine the role of effective resource management in keeping project budgets on track. Equipment, third party vendors, and data center charges – among other things – get expensed to our project budgets. But far and away the biggest drain on project dollars is the efforts of project team members being charged against the project budget. These are highly skilled individuals and they are often being charged against the project at rates of $100, $150 or even $200 per hour. One can see that inaccurate time charges, wasted or unproductive resource time, and poor task oversight can quickly lead to a project going way out of control and over budget.

Both usually translate into project success. In Part 1 we’ll examine the role of change management in the concept of project profitability.
