Catering Project Management using PRINCE2
Ramsay Todd food consultants are experts in managing large-scale catering projects and as PRINCE2 practitioners we use the PRINCE2 methodology, where required, to improve the success of those catering projects.
Our food consultants provide structure, focus and delivery of projects.
We establish the catering project plan, create a project team and set deadlines for each stage of the delivery.
We then closely monitor the progress of the catering project and keep the team focused.
Risks and issues are highlighted so that solutions and mitigations can be provided to you, where required.
Our progress is tracked so we can advise key stakeholders of, ensuring there are no surprises. On completion of the project, we conduct a ‘lessons learned’ exercise, which can then be used for reference for other projects.
