Program Management

We have an excel­lent track record in pro­gram man­age­ment, pro­vid­ing both oper­a­tional and strate­gic plan­ning ser­vices depend­ing on the clien­t’s needs (see our case study, here).

Project Execution

We devel­op the project plan to meet your needs by tak­ing into account the size, com­plex­i­ty and dura­tion of your project port­fo­lio, and oper­a­tional mode.  Com­mon issues include scop­ing, resource avail­abil­i­ty and/or capa­bil­i­ty, roles and respon­si­bil­i­ties, and project mon­i­tor­ing. We then take into account the avail­able resources and struc­ture the plan accord­ing­ly.  We present our assess­ment to the client rec­og­niz­ing the pro­jec­t’s accom­plish­ments to date, while iden­ti­fy­ing the issues, along with a cor­rec­tive plan.

Ele­ments of Suc­cess

  • Improv­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion, stake­hold­er man­age­ment.
  • Redefin­ing the project in con­text of resources and pur­pose.
  • Resource plan­ning, sched­ul­ing, and review.

Operational Planning and Execution

We work with orga­ni­za­tions to help them deliv­er supe­ri­or results through inno­v­a­tive pro­duc­tiv­i­ty improve­ments and improved oper­a­tional process­es. When nec­es­sary, we can even dri­ve imple­men­ta­tion of the plan. We spe­cial­ize in design­ing and devel­op­ing effi­cient research and devel­op­ment oper­a­tions. Rec­og­niz­ing that each company’s oper­a­tional needs and goals are unique, our work begins with a care­ful review of our clients’ capa­bil­i­ties and cur­rent per­for­mance as well as their objec­tives. With a clear point of depar­ture, we col­lab­o­rate with our clients to plan and imple­ment.

Ele­ments of Suc­cess

  • Iden­ti­fy goals, strat­e­gy, and time­line.
  • Assem­ble sched­ule, mile­stone check­points, and poten­tial mit­i­ga­tion strate­gies.
  • Com­mu­ni­cate and imple­ment plan, with appro­pri­ate review and revi­sion.

Process Engineering

While the spe­cif­ic approach varies depend­ing on the client’s sit­u­a­tion, the over­all frame­work iden­ti­fies ques­tions of through­put, spec­i­fi­ca­tions, yield, con­straints, and costs. This also includes a clear under­stand­ing of the cur­rent and future prod­uct port­fo­lio, what future foot­print and capac­i­ty plan.

Ele­ments of Suc­cess

  • Iden­ti­fy and inte­grate input and out­put spec­i­fi­ca­tions for the process­es.
  • Deter­mine process capa­bil­i­ties, through­put, and con­straints.
  • Set up, use, and review prop­er metrol­o­gy and mea­sure­ment pro­to­cols.
