Project Management

This product encompasses the full range of project management activities, including establishing the project context, planning the project, and managing the project through deployment to an operational state.  The Project Manager functions as an agent of the customer to plan, schedule, acquire resources, ensure issue resolution, mitigate risks, and manage the project for the customer until the goals and objectives of the project as documented in the project scope have been successfully met.

Customers can utilize our services in a variety of ways.  End-to-end project management, project auditing, project manager mentoring, and general project consulting are some of the ways customers can benefit from this offering.

The Project Management Office (PMO) will work with individual customers to tailor project management solutions to meet your individual needs.
