InnoVision – How We Work

InnoVision – How We Work

InnoVision has an incomparable passion for global projects and procurement. This is clearly evident in our fully-immersive, thorough process. What makes our
methodology different is our team. Together, we are changing the way companies perceive Project Management through the following principals:

  • We build a bridge on trust
  • Real-time management of risks and issues
  • Vision – we know what needs to be accomplished
  • Use of our intimate knowledge on exporting projects to outside countries
  • Investment in our team
  • Sourcing of solutions when challenges arise
  • Constant and open communication – transparency
  • Incremental Innovation


The Start of our Journey (Scope of Project)

Our clients form part of our team. We incorporate Project Management into the decision-making process, which can include a collaborative negotiation.

This brings our strength of procurement to the forefront, assisting our clients with budgets and quotes from 3rd party service providers/sub-contractors.

We strive to fully understand and visualise the client’s goals & objectives to establish a clear plan that both parties believe in, ultimately creating a Core Team.


Establishing the Heartbeat of the Project (Project Kick off)

The heartbeat of the project, which is the very core of our methodology is created and implemented collaboratively with your Project Manager.

Together we determine a rhythm for the project which comprises weekly teleconference calls and documentation creation and tracking – this is established for the purpose of empowering the Core Team and the key stakeholders.

This has been especially successful on several global projects when the prerequisite has been to combine multi-language and multicultural team discipline.


Documentation & Tracking

Once we’ve established the heartbeat of the project, a conference call is conducted weekly together with the core members of the team.

This is to record the progress of the project. It includes all decisions made in the meetings along with actions, dependencies, issues, risks and the mitigation of them.

After each meeting minutes are sent out to the Core Team, along with an updated RIADDA. Following this, an agenda is then drafted for the following week.

This effectively maintains control of the project and its people, ensuring that there are no surprises and that everything is anticipated for. If issues do come up, this process affirms that they are dealt with swiftly, and in the best possible way, taking into consideration all of the client’s processes.

Thereafter, the project manager facilitates all communication with the necessary members of the Core Team who have been tasked with actions and then subsequently documents any changes that happen throughout the week leading up to the next telecon.

Any information that needs to be considered that is outside the Core Team’s ability can be done by the project manager.

The document & tracking process includes the following:

  • Structuring and management of controlled documents
    • Gantt Charts
    • RIADDA (Risk, Issue, Assumption, Dependency, Decision, Action)
      This is the “brain” of the project, and all aspects of the project are documented and contained within this document – this enables the Core Team and Key Stakeholders full visibility of the entire project at any time.
    • RAG Analysis
    • The distribution of minutes of the weekly teleconference and a new Agenda for the next Core Team meeting
  • Performance tracking
  • Risk Mitigation – management of project costs
  • Follow up on deadlines/commitments

No matter the length of the project, this process is followed rigorously until the hand over takes place. This is when sign off will occur.


The Completion of the Project

All final documents are then handed over to the client. Thereupon, a project review is conducted.

A Project Review is conducted with the key stakeholders and the Core Team. This allows for continuous improvement based on lessons learnt for future projects which is invaluable to any client.

Our core process is built upon a Foundation of Trust.

With collaboration being one of our major keystones, we believe that any truly successful cooperation is built on these three core areas of trust:


Contractual Trust

  • Contractual Trust anchors our clients needs and objectives, this is the starting point for trust based relationships.
  • Contractual Trust is built when expectations, roles, and responsibilities are clarified repeatedly and when people practice mutually serving intentions and strive to honour or renegotiate agreements.

Communication Trust

  • Trust influences communication, and communication influences trust.
  • The two are closely related. Generally, leaders and their supporters want to communicate openly.
  • They want to ask questions, honestly speak their minds, challenge assumptions, raise issues, give and receive feedback, or simply admit confusion and request help.
  • Communication Trust creates an environment in which people feel safe to relate in this way.

Competency Trust

  • Competency Trust – We at InnoVision rely on the assembled Core Team to perform its responsibilities within the scope of the project, this is an absolute requirement to get work done effectively.
  • It means being able to rely on someone to complete a specific task.

InnoVision works together with our clients to improve their business performance and profitability.
