Troubled projects are frequently created as the result of an inadequate project launch. Even experienced PMs can get overwhelmed during launch by contractual, customer and technical issues, leaving typical launch activities for “later”. However, all too often “later” comes only after the project begins to fail.
We offer a range of Project Launch support services, based upon Project Management Institute guidelines, designed to assist your project manager in getting off to a trouble free start. We can help you to establish tailored behavioral, administrative and technical policies and procedures to help ensure your project team members and supporting staff understand expectations, rules, and required actions and do not waste project time searching for procedural answers.
We also can provide leadership and management mentoring and advisory services to assist junior or inexperienced project managers to succeed through the project’s entire lifecycle.
