Project Management: Our Innogration
There are many critical success factors that must be in place to run a top notch program. Organizational goals are typically defined based on productivity targets, budget management, regulatory compliance and responsiveness to customers and stakeholders. Our methods are clearly defined, repeatable business processes that are measurable. We work with our customers to establish a performance baseline backed up by meaningful metrics that are easy to measure. These metrics are transformed into a scorecard that shows how well the organization is performing against its business goals. We also help our customers establish a sound organizational change management mechanism to help deal with the inevitable changes that are driven by internal, legislative and technology. Change is managed so the day-to-day operations and mission-oriented functions continue as expected.
