While project management systems abound, these are only a small part of the formula for excellent projects. Our focus is to use the tools and frameworks available to engage the project team, and often other stakeholders, in a discussion that builds a strong understanding of the concepts, needs and aims that the project plan must capture.
RMCG focuses on building this understanding by exploring the evidence-base for both the problem and the solutions being suggested. We believe our strong content knowledge and experience in environment and natural resource management is vital to being able to work with the project team to test the evidence and challenge the robustness of proposed solutions.
Another critical element is the ability to ‘tell the story’ of the project. We believe presentation of a project can have enormous influence. Our approach creates both the formal documentation of a project and material to help the team present their project to partners, stakeholders and investors.
We have assisted Catchment Management Authorities to develop biodiversity, land management, invasive plant and animal management, water quality and community capacity building projects. In many cases, these projects have targeted state and/or Australian government funding. We have also worked with community-based groups to develop their local-scale project concepts and plans.
