Definition

In today's fast-paced competitive environment, companies must deliver their key strategic initiatives reliably. Pcubed consultants partner with their clients to develop and implement an enhanced program and project management process framework. This set of best-in-class processes creates a foundation for long-term sustainable delivery, providing the organization with the ability to more effectively deliver program and projects and their accompanying business change required to achieve organizational strategies.

Organizations without reliable processes remain dependent on heroic project team members. While heroes may be able to deliver some of the most complex projects, outcomes are typically unpredictable. In these organizations, each project often starts with a blank slate - continuous reinvention is common and successful practices are rarely shared. Pcubed's Process Solutions address these program management and project management capabilities at both the organizational and individual levels.

  • Enhance awareness and adoption of program and project management processes and capabilities.
  • Chart their improvement path across an integrated roadmap that draws from assessment results and improvement recommendations.
  • Increase delivery capability by providing a comprehensive framework for project and program management.
  • Increase discipline in their project and program management approach through formalized processes - achieve a consistent approach to project management through well-defined and pragmatic processes.
