Project & Program Management

Vertech believes the key to effective project and program inspection management is early stakeholder engagement, understanding our client’s principal drivers, effective planning, staff selection and maintaining strong communication throughout the entire operations lifecycle.

Our operations team, along with their project manager, work through all scope and quality requirements, time horizons, internal systems and cost boundaries with the client to define a project charter. We then enter a detailed planning phase that implements everything needed to meet the project’s specific demands.

We can go above and beyond our client’s expectations through our high level of company processes while managing projects, programs, and assets.

Drawing on our extensive experience in successfully completing campaigns, complex projects and ongoing maintenance services, Vertech Group has a specialised suite of in-house integrated project inspection management tools to support project delivery through every stage of the specialist access management lifecycle.

Key Inspection Management Take-Aways
  • Early engagement in project planning is crucial.
  • Set expectations and goals to enable accountability.
  • Collaboration between all stakeholders is a must.
  • Focusing on the planning phase directly contributes to productivity.
  • Engaging your frontline team and sub-contractors in the planning ensures ownership.
  • Each project comes with individual challenges.
  • Frontline leadership from the project manager with strong communication is the difference between a good project and a great project.


1. Initiating This stage marks the beginning of a project, specifically when the project gets approved, and helps managers visualise what is to be done.
2. Planning Planning is the most crucial stage of this process and identifies what needs to be done, and how it should be done, in order to accomplish the project scope.
3. Executing The execution stage sees the previously designed plans enacted. This is typically the brunt of any project and is the key area where results will be delivered.
4. Monitoring & Control This stage maintains the integrity of the project and increases its longevity through close monitoring and control of various areas - ensuring that all deliverables are being met.
5. Closing This marks the end of the project lifecycle and is where project reports will be presented to clients.


While our cross-functional teams have a suite of custom software systems, mature processes, specialist access management procedures, and a wealth of experience, all of this is irrelevant without exemplary leadership and the right people for the job.

Vertech understands the importance of our people and takes care to utilise our staff’s unique skill sets, drivers, and individual experience to promote a culture of ‘Servant Leadership’.

Servant leaders share power, listen to others, focus on client and staff needs, and help others develop and perform as highly as possible while building a sense of community. Implementing this model can multiply our leadership capability and increase the human potential to serve our clients better.
