Project Planning Consolidation

Business Issue:

The organization needed assistance designing and implementing a centralized project servicing center to dramatically improve project execution, resource management, and monitoring.

  • Established a new 750-person division of the organization, missioned to align IT investment decisions and accountability for return on investment with the needs of the business profit centers
  • Created standard processes, procedures, and tools to allow the client to operate more efficiently and increase the productivity of project teams
  • Developed and implemented an organization transition plan to staff the new business unit in less than two months
