Production

We manage publishing services for publishers who need to create educational resources:

  • writing and content development
  • editing, copy editing, proofreading and answer checking
  • design, typesetting and illustration.

Deliverables

We identify key milestones and prepare detailed schedules, outlining:

  • who will be responsible for each deliverable
  • what items need to be delivered
  • when they are due.

Scheduling

Scheduling is a critical part of project management. A detailed schedule allows everyone in the supply chain enough time to do their job well, and will factor in contingencies to ensure your deadline is met. During the project, your schedule will be updated and resources deployed to ensure on time delivery.

Budget

Nikki M Group understands that clients want to be able to forecast budgets and reduce costs. By collaborating with us during the planning stages, we can identify how we can implement efficiencies.

We provide written proposals that contain a scope of work, from which the budget will be created. An itemised budget ensures all elements are included and creates a realistic cost forecast.
