The Project Manager's duties will vary at this stage depending on the Client’s expertise and requirements, the nature of the project, the timing of the appointment and similar factors. It is advisable to appoint the Project Manager at a very early stage, possibly at the inception.

Collection of all information including review, validation and organizing in a structured and manageable format is a major task in the initiation stage.

Irrespective of project specific scope, TPM policy is to ensure professional, competent management coordination, monitoring and controlling of the project right from the inception stage through its satisfactory completion in accordance with the project brief.

Project Management, although strongly associated with project controls and systems, is above all about managing people.

Project close-out management is a process that coordinates the efficient seamless handover of a new facility to its owner. Our systematic project close-out approach ensures that organizations achieve their service requirements and can realize the full benefits of their new facility.
