Agile or Waterfall. Local or Global.
Program & Project Management
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.
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 inside 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 20 years of contract negotiation expertise to ensure our client obtains the most cost effective and best possible licensing and consulting agreement.
leadership, TEAM and Personal coaching
We empower your leaders and teams by building on their existing capabilities and coaching them to achieve 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 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 RBC CM, BMO CM, and CIBC WM.
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.
