WORLD CLASS PROJECTS - Project Specific Program
Lean Management Techniques are emerging as the tools and techniques applied
by companies that achieve world-class performance. These tools and
techniques are only recently being applied outside the manufacturing
environment. John de Wardt has developed unique processes for successfully
applying these tools and techniques to projects.
Project Management Methods are known and understood by many organizations
however they are often poorly or inadequately applied. This program offers
the understanding and implementation of Project Management Methods where
these are insufficiently developed.

The overall objective of this program is for our clients to achieve a step
change improvement (more than 25%) in performance of a project.
Each program is divided into phases:
We diagnose the current state of your organization and discuss and agree the
most appropriate elements of the program for application to your needs.
·Pre-Planning / Project Definition
We initiate the processes required to define the project management
process and initiate the tools and techniques required to achieve
·Delivery System Re-Design
We custom design and facilitate a workshop that enables the project
participants (customer and all their suppliers) to modify their
organization architecture in such a way that they are able to exceed
past performance. This results in a fully owned, aligned, team-based
organization with understood, effective roles and responsibilities.
In this phase we hold one on one discussions with process leaders and
their teams to develop interdependencies and measurements necessary to
create a responsive, fully empowered organization. We support the
application of relevant systems that enable the organization to
competently manage its work. We implement an enhancement program to
improve the planned performance and a site ownership program to ensure
the new plans are carried effectively.
We support the organization as needed and provide useful feedback on its
· Improvement / Learning
We assist the organization to evaluate their progress in implementing
the selected tools and techniques to ensure advancement and application
of continuous learning techniques. We enable the paradigm shift to be
is provided as an ongoing process to support the
team members in achieving their goals for transformation.
Results to-date show significant improvements in project performance in
terms of project value (for example $ / Bbl NPV). Applications resulted in
40% reduction in project times and up to 30% reduction in costs. Increases
in productivity from the constructed project of 20 to 100% have been
