Implementing Project Management Across a Large Client

We worked with a large architecture and engineering firm that sought to implement Earned Value Management (EVM) across its business. The firm managed approximately 200 projects per year with about 30 project managers. In partnership with another consulting firm, we developed necessary project management processes that blended with the business processes. Then we developed the tools and training needed to prepare the project teams for the new way of doing business. We worked hand in hand with the client to turn over the implementation work as rapidly as possible in order to manage to a tight budget. Upon completion, we had trained approximately 140 people in the processes, tools and methods. We wrapped up the assignment with a "way forward" guide to help the change leaders to maintain the momentum of the initiative and continue to instantiate the changes throughout the organization.
