Construction Industry Training Board adopts Microsoft Project Online

The Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) are the Industry Training Board and a partner in the Sector Skills Council for the construction industry in England, Scotland and Wales. It is CITB’s job to work with industry to encourage training, which helps build a safe, professional and fully qualified workforce.

CITB’s Project Delivery Office was challenged by a lack of credible reporting resulting in scope creep and overruns both in duration and financially, Project and programme managers did not have centralised process and tools.

“We were attracted to PPS by the approach taken by them to discuss the problem statement and by recommending more than one option to address the issues faced.

PPS optimised Project Online to incorporate a suite of reporting functions, defining project planning governance, formalising processes and embedding in the organisation. Additionally the value add was that Risk and Issues reporting can be aligned to the projects and be more transparent.

We now have a  demonstrable suite of reports providing assurance and credibility within the organisation in addition to being able to deliver more with less PMO dependant tasks. i.e. automatic Risk & Issue reporting dashboards.

I would highly recommend Project Plan Services compared with other providers as the value earned was greater than that achieved from larger consultancies used historically.”
