  • Cash flow/cost profiling and ‘S-Curves’
  • Design Management

  • Cause & Effect Analysis measuring the impact of variations in the programme.

Project recovery

Linx-to will perform a preliminary appraisal including a review of the Contract and scope of work specification documents in order to carry out a survey to define the outstanding work scope and deliverables. Once defined Linx-to will hold inclusive workshops with the project team from which we will develop the recovery completion programme.

Once the recovery plan is in place, Linx-to offer the following:
  • Ongoing management and monitoring of the recovery plan
  • Production of 2 weekly detailed look-ahead programmes.
  • Facilitate daily/weekly meetings with the project team
  • Analysis of Risks and Opportunities for the remainder of the project.

Dispute Avoidance

The implementation of any project is complex and involves the exchange and creation of high volumes of data. This increases the risk of misunderstandings, disagreements and disputes between the project participants.

A fundamental aspect of dispute avoidance is the early implementation of appropriate and proactive project controls, progress monitoring, record keeping and reporting procedures; all of which are offered by Linx-to. Our simple and effective methodology of project planning and management will help avoid the time consuming and costly process of preparing or defending claims in a legal dispute.

Linx-to offers a regular and objective assessment of progress and the earned value for each phase of your project from which we produce clear specific reports providing early warnings of potential disputes, helping the project team positively deal with such issues.

If a dispute cannot be avoided, the project control measures put in place will aid their effective management.
