SCVS offer a number of management services that can range from general information and support to accessing specialist information. If required we can also offer direct management of a project from a member of the community development team.
What does project management entail
Define the project
Plan and sequence the project
Realistic budget projections
Construct your budget outlining the main elements and how the cost of each of these might be estimated. Ensure you take into account all project delivery costs, support costs and overheads that may be needed to meet the requirement of any stakeholders or funders.
Work effectively with your project team
Work with stakeholders and champions
Understand who your local stakeholders are and what influence or interest they may have in your project.
Monitor and evaluate your project
Design a simple evaluation method that will effectively capture all of the data that you will need and ensure that you embed these methods into your project delivery. Understand what your project is trying to achieve and what your funders or stakeholders what to see reported back.
