Moving your home or business premise is often referred to as the most stressful project that someone could undertake. This was definitely the case for JMS – it was imperative that they got it right as their entire lively hood depended on it.
JMS is a relatively small but extremely successful ‘Print and Design’ company with a strong reputation that had been developed over 20 years of established trading history. Moving their business scared them tremendously; the fall-out if it went wrong was not worth contemplating.
BMi identified the PRINCE2 methodology as the best way to approach the JMS relocation project, as it is truly a generic approach. PRINCE2 can be applied to any project regardless of the scale, type, organization or geography by isolating the management aspects of project work from specialist contributions such as design and construction whilst maintaining focus to ensure a successful project.
Relocating the JMS business seamlessly for the current customer base would always remain a key objective by the business owners. It was quickly established that the new location brought a whole new and exciting set of opportunities that needed to be included in the project.
JMS relocated successfully, bringing an increase to their client base by 18%! Not only this but also their overall flexibility and services due to new supplier sourcing opportunities improved vastly.
