Our thoroughly validated proprietary assessment tool is ideal for measuring the level of art and science skills of your current program and project managers. It is proven effective in predicting performance. The detailed report can also be used for matching individuals to projects, coaching, conflict resolution, and team building. Our benchmarking and validation process can be used to develop ideal PM candidate models specific to your unique organization and culture.
Projects often get stalled and are at risk of failing to deliver on results. When this happens, the typical response is to throw more science at the project – more meetings, more processes, more templates. But often that is not where the real problem lies, and incorrect responses only exacerbate the problem further. Our team of experienced personnel can do a rapid diagnostic, re-baseline the project and bring both the art and science needed to turnaround the project.
Art and Science Transformation Management
We offer senior experienced senior staff in program and project management, management consulting and corporate management to achieve the highest level of art and science in delivering on desired transformation results. Proposed staff are carefully assessed for individual fit with a specific client project and supported through weekly “huddles” where a team of experts offer additional support, leadership, and advice to the consultant in meeting client requirements.
Program and Project Alignment
We offer a proven approach to aligning your transformation initiatives with your business strategy and targeted performance goals. We help to ensure that programs and projects are structured in such a way as to ensure strategic project decisions (project objectives, funding, discontinuation) in a portfolio management style, are consistent with the strategic transformation plan and within the available resources. We help ensure that groups of highly inter-related projects (shared objectives or resources, strong interdependencies) are managed in a coordinated way to achieve desired results.
Project Team Optimization
Our proprietary relationship matching assessment examines the fit between individuals who are considering or are currently working together as a project team. It is a valuable tool for identifying the strengths of the relationship and potential areas of project team stress based on individuals' personality, attitudes, emotional intelligence, cognitive abilities, and leadership potential. The report also provides feedback on how individuals' character traits and attitudes relate to the team building process.
Coaching and Mentoring
Often, organizations have staff who show great potential to mature into experienced art and science transformation managers. However, they lack the internal role models and mentoring that can get them there quickly. Our mentoring program affords them the opportunity to obtain the needed skills and experience by playing the role of “second chair” to one of our experienced staff. We also use proprietary structured mentoring processes to accelerate, optimize and direct knowledge transfer. These include one on one mentoring, as well as team mentoring and a unique program that prepares prospective transformation Mentors inside the organization.
