Performance, cost, value and risk/uncertainty are inextricably linked.
We assist in the planning and improvement of programs and projects through: • Independent assessments of program & projects likelihood of success • Multi-disciplinary, structured team reviews to optimize outcomes • Certification of best value programs and projects • Training of staff in basic and advanced project management practices.
For over 25 years, we have been delivering planning, optimization, advisory, assurance, facilitation and training services to funding agencies, owner, consultant and contractor organizations. Our range of processes, techniques and tools applies to programs, projects, products and systems. Our portfolio of successes includes a wide range of major infrastructure programs and projects in over 25 countries. Choices between project improvement techniques and tools can be bewildering, with so many seeming to claim to do the same thing (sometimes, allegedly better, faster and cheaper). We have extensive experience across a range of application areas and can advise clients on the most appropriate use of different approaches.
We conduct strategic diagnoses for executive oversight and deep dives to resolve specific issues.
Our services maximize benefits and significantly increase return-on-investment. As such, we focus on innovative, long-term solutions and embedding sustainable outcomes.
Our guidance in identification of opportunities for functionality improvements, schedule optimization, risk reduction and cost avoidance, has led to savings of many hundreds of millions of dollars. For example $100 Mn. CAPEX saving and functionality enhancement at the tendering stage of an EPC offshore project.
