We have over 60 years of experience in managing projects and programs from both a technical and program management perspective. These skills have been applied in university, government and private sector organizations.

We provide a range of program management services, including mentoring the organization’s current or new project managers, management of all or portions of a project in a co-located or virtual environment, oversight of program management effectiveness, creation, measurement, and management of program processes, and definition and development of project deliverables and milestones. 

While our approach strongly relies on team effort, it also recognizes the need to provide the material needed to make progress. We can provide the overall project plan and methodology.   We also provide sample and draft products of project plans, budgets, schedules, milestones and deliverables.
