“BrightWork delivers customizable SharePoint templates for managing different project types and also for managing across many projects. This gave us a very fast yet flexible starting point.”
Hannah Bayliss, NCC
Managing several wide-ranging projects became difficult with varying levels of project management knowledge and the varying levels of adherence to project management procedures across the council. There was also a lack of openness and transparency of projects and their progress.
NCC deployed BrightWork and introduced Project Milestones to be completed in design and implementation phases of projects, a project document library, and versioning history of Risks, Issues and Tasks. As an elected representative body, the Council is fully accountable to the public and uses BrightWork to improve transparency and to ensure projects are following all mandatory guidelines.
