Evalign

Global Project Delivery & leadership coaching

Trusted to Deliver Results

Navigating a clear path to success...

From the seed of an idea to the implementation of the final product, we are trusted by world-class organizations to lead them decisively through highly complex, global projects to deliver transformational results. Whether our client is a large institution or a mid-sized firm, we take a collaborative approach to provide services of the highest caliber and deliver the customized solutions that each client expects.

Nina Jolic started Evalign as a boutique firm in 2005, providing her clients an expert senior consultant, unlike the big consulting firms that sell high and fill teams with junior staff.

We bring a proven track record with time-tested successful large project delivery and customize our services to each client's specific need and organizational methodologies, be it Agile or Iterative Waterfall.  

We have consistently executed and launched "Go Live" for more than 20 complex global business and technology projects and "rescued" 5 multi-million dollar projects in the last 13 years. We are proud to have recovered 100% of the troubled projects we took over for our clients.

We are committed to our clients and our mission is to provide value well beyond the project by strengthening the organizational delivery practices and bench strength of the in-house team.

Our People are certified with the Project Management Institute (PMI), the Project Management Association of Canada (PMAC), Scrum.org and The Coaches Institute.  We continue to be on the pulse of modern technology, project management methodologies, coaching techniques - all to give our clients exceptional leadership and service that will last for years to come.

I worked with Nina for over two years ... ultimate ‘project rescue’ in which she worked tirelessly across multiple geographies and time zones to unite a team and ensure effective communications took place between the business and IT.

Services of Value




Program & Project Delivery

Projects are complex and a drain on business and IT.  With the increased scale and complexity of enterprise projects, it is difficult for IT to meet the demand for experienced PMs with leadership skills, a trait critical for success as reported by the Project Management Institute. That’s where we can help. Using proven best practices refined over the past 13+ years leading business projects and large scale custom software implementations using Agile and Iterative Waterfall processes, we work closely with IT and business to ensure delivery of what business expects to receive.  


Leadership, TEAM and Personal Coaching

We empower your leaders and teams by building on their existing capabilities and coaching them to achieve at their highest potential.  As a trusted Coach, we work closely with our clients to remove self-imposed obstacles, bring fresh perspectives, increase effectiveness, positively shift team dynamics, and strengthen delivery practices.

                                                                        

project recovery

Project failures waste billions of dollars each year. We have a 100% successful track record of recovering troubled projects that are complex, high profile, high risk and global in nature. This has been accomplished at LPL Financial, RBC CM, BMO CM, and CIBC WM.

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          


Portfolio management

Business visibility into a portfolio is critical to ensure alignment and progress towards established objectives and forms the bridge between strategy and implementation.  With centralized management of programs and projects, we provide transparency for executive management to meet organizational goals and objectives through informed decision making. 

 

                                                                                                  

vendor selection & contract negotiation

Decisions are slow when there are many options and not enough knowledge on the subject. We remove the guess work by leveraging our vendor background in both software sales and technology consulting. Being able to bring "insider" knowledge to cut through the cloud of promises and select the best solution has been hugely effective for our clients.  From the initial search for qualified vendors, through the vendor proposal evaluation process, to engaging stakeholder groups for demos and a review of the recommended options, our proven evaluation methodology works. Once the decision is made, we bring over 20 years of expertise to help negotiate the most cost effective and complete licensing and consulting agreement.
