PROJECT MANAGEMENT

At Project Partnership, we take a holistic approach to ethical program management through our five-stage process from i) Feasibility Assessment; ii) Project planning, design and Documentation; iii) Project Implementation; iv) Project operation and monitoring; and v) Impact Evaluation. We pride ourselves in managing the integration of these phases for successful project delivery, including:

Certification: Project Partnership provides detailed analysis of Nursing Home and Hostel Certification Reports. We prepare recommendations to Clients on responses to improve certification outcomes and analyse reports for inconsistencies. If required, we have written to parliamentarians and the Minister to seek changes to deficiencies of the certification instrument. Our certification services also include the preparation of documentation for aged care facilities to address Fire Safety issues arising from the new certification requirements.

Hostel and Nursing Home Remodelling: Project Partnership manages the remodelling of older Nursing Homes and Hostels to meet current Accreditation and Certification standards. We also deliver strategies to convert low care areas to a high care areas (in Hostels) to enable facilities to better reflect local community requirements. Our remodelling services also support the conversion facilities, for example converting a vacant Hostel wing into serviced apartments and converting a vacant Nursing Home wing to become a High Care wing in an existing Hostel.

STRATEGIC ADVISORY

Project Partnership provides strategic planning services for Nursing Homes and Hostels. Key areas of focus include Aged Care Reform, the impact of the Markets, the impact of changes in Resident expectations, the introduction of competition between Nursing Homes and Hostels, and, the development of a sustainable aged care workforce.

Facility Efficiency and Budgeting: We review efficiencies in the delivery of services in facilities to improve cost factors. We also review forecasts and budgets with other professionals to assist clients.

Capital Funding: Project Partnership prepares research papers and analysis of Government’s Capital Funding Models to demonstrate to Clients and Politicians the positive effects and deficiencies of the funding model.

Rationalisation: We examine options to acquire or move “beds” to improve performance of any one home. In some cases, rationalisation requires reorganisation on a site or relocation.

SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT (INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT)

We apply a participative Theory of Change approach to problem specification, and a stakeholder driven response to contextual specification so that programs can be designed to realistically address social development challenges in situ.

Monitoring and Evaluation Frameworks: Monitoring of donor funded human development ensures that results are being delivered as planned and informs decision makers about changes needed to ensure outputs are completed and the stated assumptions are upheld.
