Funding is a very key aspect of any project. For the success of a project the funding needs to be adequate and managed in the right manner. At times the funding is not as anticipated and you have to work with what you have. The scope of this procedure is to help the project management team learn how to deal with challenges as well as avoid challenges that are related to the finances of the project.
Fund management needs to be very effective so that the funds do not run out before a particular phase is completed. You need to plan ahead as this will help make sure that the funds are managed in a proper manner. The materials and equipments that you are going to use on the site have to be available for the project to proceed and so you need to make sure that these are budgeted for well. You also have to remember that the site workers need to be paid so that they can continue coming to work and so you have to plan ahead for this as well.
Proper project management requires that you remain calm even when things are not going as planned. If you notice that there are some issues with the fund. You have to make sure that you sort out these issues well. The people working on the site do not need to see you panicking because they will also start to panic.
Site management also requires that you make sure the workers are not wasting resources. Your funding will be very challenging if the resources are not being managed well. This means that if the workers do not take care of the resources then the budget will have to change and this will affect the funding. You need to supervise the workers and make sure that everything is working out well.
This however does not mean that you interfere with the work that the workers are doing. You need to have the proper fund management skills that will help you do this tactfully. As a good project manager you need to know how best to talk to your workers so that they will not take it negatively. You also need to make sure that you do not overpay or underpay the workers that you have. If the finances are a problem you need to inform the workers of this and make sure that you do something about this soon.
Site management has a lot of risks of failure especially if the funding is not adequate and you have to know how to deal with these risks. If you are short of cash in the middle of the project, it does not have to stop from some time. You can have a backup plan of how you can get the funds when you are on site and you run out of the finances. You have to be wise and be able to think outside the box for all to go well.
