Advisory


Project PlanningWyndham Orlando

The scope of Project Planning encompasses the selection of the type of project to be developed, the creation of a dependable economic model, a review of the constraints to achieving the desired results, a realistic project schedule, establishment of a viable financing structure, identification of the correct team members for the particular development under consideration, accurately predicting the costs and, developing an effective marketing approach.  We generally refer to this stage as arriving at the “Right Idea.”

Many times a Plan B Holdings’ client already has a concept that they would like to realize. Our services usually begin with a review of the client’s original assumptions and completion of the planning activities that were either incomplete or not yet addressed. This usually results in a refinement in the original concept that both reflect a more realistic assessment of the opportunity and many times we achieve better results.
