Simple Ways to Turn Risk Into Results
We help organizations provide a framework for developing, aligning and executing project deliverables with their organizational goals, managing their risks and achieving the value defined by their business strategies. A balanced project organization must have strong program / portfolio leadership and steering committees to support the engagement of the project team.
We look at project management from a customer experience perspective to maximize repeat projects, all receivables are paid and the customer becomes a reference. It is no longer enough to deliver projects on time and within budget. We support the project team from project initiation to final hand-over by strengthening your internal processes. Coach and support project management teams.
We are experts to turn a troubled project around. It requires specialized skills to quickly develop and execute the project recovery plan. Some of the warning signs you should never ignore include: the customer is no longer on the same page as you, threat of penalties or litigation, unexpected activity levels, unpaid invoices, pending change orders, forecasts or schedule are constantly changing.

Before going too far, it is important to carry out a serious and impartial claim assessment by diving in depth just enough to have a clear vision. To reach a settlement faster, make sure you have the right messenger, the right documentation, and the right timing.

Collect documents and emails seamlessly through Outlook and populate “structured” libraries. Monitor bid assumptions, issues, risks, and changes. Speed up and improve the substantiation of claims, billing...
We offer coaching as a particularly effective way to engage your PMs, develop your internal knowledge and keep the lessons learned. Not all organizations have the right expertise at the portfolio / coordination level to support PMs in complex situations. PMs are often thrown out of their comfort zone and may not be comfortable sharing their fears and uncertainties with their functional manager. We also offer various training courses as part of our consulting missions or as stand-alone.
