Blackmores has been in business for over 70 years and are the leaders in developing and marketing products, information, services, advice and knowledge on natural health, vitamins, minerals, herbs and supplements and alternative medicine. Blackmores manufacture and distribute their products to pharmacies, health food stores and supermarkets.
Blackmores was in the process of relocating their two current business facilities at Balgowlah and Brookvale to a new purpose built facility at Warriewood in 2008.
The transition to a new facility was a major undertaking and it was recognised that the organisation would benefit by formalising a Project Management Office (PMO) structure supporting the Project Managers to manage the projects that would be necessary to successfully transition Blackmores’ infrastructure, operational and manufacturing capability, people and related services to the new Warriewood facility.
CMC was engaged by Blackmores to provide Program Management for the company’s move to Warriewood. The focus was on managing the risk associated with the move and to provide governance and visibility of the project’s progress through formalised reporting.
CMC in conjunction with Blackmores delivered the Project Charters and detailed Project Plans for all projects in the Program. Blackmores’ Project Managers continue to be supported and mentored to ensure appropriate visibility and regular status reporting is in place. A Project Network Diagram was created to enable assessment of the dependencies and their impacts on the critical path.
