Project management

Mathematics publishing

Nikki M Group manages the production of maths resources for educational publishers. We provide project management at each stage in the publishing process, including:

  1. Consultation

  3. Production
  4. Handover

We evaluate the scope of work, then coordinate:

  • production planning
  • technical solutions
  • quality assurance
  • risk management.

Sadler Mathematics was designed and typeset for Cengage Australia. The series consists of 10 textbooks with 3032 pages in total.


For new projects, pre-planning can be a great way to save time and costs. We offer consultation services for assessing:

  • specialised skill sets
  • key stages and milestones
  • efficiencies in production
  • capabilities and capacity.

Benefit from our maths know-how and publishing experience.


We offer planning at all stages of the publishing process. We audit projects to establish:

We manage publishing services for publishers creating educational resources. This can include:

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


We identify key milestones and prepare detailed schedules, outlining:

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


Scheduling is a critical part of project management. Our detailed schedules give everyone in the supply chain time to do their job well, with contingencies to ensure your deadline is met. During the project, your schedule will be updated and resources deployed to ensure timely delivery.


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