A clear vision for Firecrest

Recent graduate, James Corcoran, used his third semester in-company project to improve value for current employer, Firecrest. When the company was contracted by University College Dublin to create a video raising awareness about diabetes among school-age children, James used the knowledge and skills from his UL Master’s in Project & Programme Management to define the project vision and greatly improve efficacy. By identifying key criteria and functions, and aligning thinking towards this goal, James was able to enhance efficiency and significantly reduce estimated project duration. Supervisor, Sean Kirwan, found James’ contribution invaluable, helping to refine the project’s scope and providing the whole team with new perspective on project value. Beyond transforming the UCD project, James also revealed a new approach to project planning and management that will be vital to Firecrest moving forward.
