Program & Project Management

Proven program and project management aligns business strategy with execution.

“Organizations waste an average of $97 million for every $1 billion invested, due to poor project performance.”

— Project Management Institute

Successful business outcomes begin with clear vision and alignment—from executive leaders to the delivery team—and depend on rigorous planning, skillful execution and the agility to assess status and course-correct as needed. Using proven project management lifecycle approaches and our own Project Management Framework (PMF), we support the specific characteristics and objectives of each program or project to drive successful results.

Our results-oriented PMs have decades of experience delivering highly complex programs and projects for the world’s leading organizations and are certified in a variety of frameworks and methodologies. We also bring deep industry, functional and operational expertise, as well as emotional intelligence to build strong, collaborative relationships clients and other resources.

Whether your organization relies on a traditional waterfall methodology or follows an Agile or hybrid approach, you can count on consistent, efficient and sustainable results, with strong governance and processes to support data-driven decisions.

Driving Value at Every Stage

With our PMF as a foundation, we work with your leadership team to deliver value and transparency every step of the way, keeping projects on track with the agility to pivot quickly. In addition to support for individual projects, we also offer solutions for managing multiple, complex projects and for implementing Agile transformation initiatives.

Project Portfolio Management

“94% of high-maturity organizations noticed a tangible impact after implementing Project Portfolio Management”

— Project Management Institute

Drive your corporate strategy while making the most of investments in time, resources and funding by prioritizing initiatives based on their expected value. Project Portfolio Management enables you to map projects and programs in your portfolio to strategic pillars while optimizing project delivery. This provides a holistic view of your entire portfolio and becomes the basis for defining measurable strategic success objectives, including identifying cross-project/program synergies and dependencies, to maximize the value of your investments.

Program Management Office (PMO)

“50% of large organizations will have integrated disparate business and IT PMOs into EPMO hubs to enable digital transformation by 2021.”

— Gartner

When undertaking strategic initiatives, you can gain operational efficiencies and increase value from your investments by aligning projects into programs and programs into portfolios. A successful PMO establishes a strong governance structure for synchronized execution, applying templates, processes and standards for all projects and programs within the portfolio. The PMO quantifies needs, manages demand, prioritizes efforts, coordinates dependencies, assesses and reports on execution, and mitigates risk across projects.
