The Benefits of a Professional Project Manager in Workspace Transformations
We recently worked on a workspace project where we were able to save the client over $15 million. You are not just buying my time; you are buying my 25+ years of experience as a professional project manager”. These are the words of Kevin Tompkins of CTPG who shares the microphone with David and Jonathan on this final episode of the Tech Simple podcast in Season 1.
In this chat Kevin likens the role of a professional project manager to that of a “conductor of an orchestra”. This is a key to success. A great PM is able the get the most out of everyone on a project team by giving each person the space and scope to excel at what they do best. He also talks about the importance of assembling the right team of people and companies to work together on a workspace project. The client and type of workspace will heavily influence these choices.
Kevin is also acutely aware of the importance AV now has in the modern workplace. We talk about some of the changes that have occurred in recent years and cover the factors that influence a successful AV outcome on any workspace project. We collectively agree in this discussion that having the right AV team to consult with and advise the client early, and then having the ability to proactively manage change before things become an issue, is invaluable on any project.
