Our Approach

We follow good practice project management methods based on the PRINCE2 model. We always begin by agreeing a project plan with the client that divides the project into distinct stages and milestones and identifying outputs that will be delivered. We consult the client at stage boundaries and agree the next stage.

We prepare a risk management schedule, identifying risks and how they should be managed, which is kept under review.
We ensure good quality by adhering to the project management methodology, working closely with client and stakeholders and providing drafts of documents in time to allow for good consultation.

Because we are a small tight team, we are able to address project management issues as they arise.

"Shirley Muir Associates were instrumental in putting together an excellent bid to the HLF Landscape Partnership Scheme. Working with our Steering Group, they were quick to pick up the essential details and turn them into a very well written and ultimately successful application: Rusland Horizons: Working a Lakeland Landscape. During our brief liaison, they were attentive and committed and we could not have asked for more".
