Project management

At present time, project management is often spoken about and a wide range of activities are referred to as projects. However, successful project management requires a lot of experience and practical knowledge of methodologies, procedures, and methods of application. As in any other area, an entirely intuitive procedure may often involve a high level of risk.

The project management methodology by Pontech is based on two crucial fundaments:

  • knowledge of international standards by professional associations (IPMA, PMI), recognised methodologies (PRINCE 2) and standards (ISO 10006, ISO 21500)
  • application of experience and proven project management procedures and methodologies based on long-term experience of project managers as well as a number of projects implemented for leading corporations or institutions.

Our objective is to cooperate with the customer in order to find the optimum procedure and method of integration of project management into everyday operation of the company not only from the practical viewpoint, but also to implement project management as a crucial change management tool and one of the basic elements for strategic management of an institution or business.

Customer project management covers a wide range of activities from general "turnkey" project management, via takeover of an existing project, support and methodological leadership by customer project manager, involvement in the customer's project office, to project audit or independent project supervision providing for adequate quality of project management.


Project management typically requires software tools providing for different functions according to the needs of the specific customer and project. Such tools range from the very basic ones catering for plain registration of projects, via tools generating typical project outputs and tools (Gantt diagram, WBS, etc.), to complex EPM (Enterprise Project Management) systems. EPM systems may be either self-standing, or integrated in the resource planning and management systems (ERP) and they include features for coordination of the project system, risk management, financial planning, capacity planning and optimisation, etc.
