When it comes to high-stakes projects, you want to be confident in your team’s ability to execute. Achieving that confidence happens after you consistently deliver on commitment to customers, whether their internal or external. While that’s the dream, it’s rarely the reality. Most projects are late. Profit is lost. Quality suffers. Ultimately, trust is broken with your customer. Instead of feeling excited about the work, you and your team feel frustrated, uncertain, and exhausted.
Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be this way. You deserve a project planning strategy that enables your team to successfully and consistently deliver on high-stakes projects. We understand how much is riding on your project and how challenging it is to meet expectations and deadlines. You work with time-tested practitioners, people with long work backgrounds and extensive experience in our framework. Our project experts average 38 years of work experience and 19 years achieving ideal project results with the proprietary Project Success Method (PSM)sm.
“I have used the Project Success Method for over 20 years on all types of projects, including major acquisitions, global outsourcing, rapid product development, corporate systems migrations, and green initiatives. It’s top-down approach to planning and critical-issues focus during the control process provide you with a means to manage very complex projects in a relatively simple, straightforward manner. Whether you have a small project in a business start-up or a portfolio of projects in a Fortune 500 company, the Project Success Method will help you complete them on time, within budget and to quality specifications.”
“I’d just like to underscore the tremendous versatility of the Project Success Method. I’ve used it on 400-person projects and twelve person projects. I’ve used it in Fortune 500 corporate environments and entrepreneurial start-ups. I’ve used it on highly technical projects and in business projects, such as rolling out a new advertising campaign or a new company benefits plan. It’s worked for me time and time again, and I owe much of my success to PSI and the Project Success Method.”
“The Project Success Method has proven itself to be a valuable tool in managing a complex, multigenerational product development program with 100+ design, development, manufacturing, and support teams providing input to the Motor Grader Monarch program. The ability to visualize the full scope of the program, identify the numerous dependencies, and understand the “Critical Path” was crucial to the success of the program. The periodic updates allowed management to anticipate constraints and then adjust priorities and resources to meet the demanding program schedule.”
“The (Project Success Method) Worry Curve gets the worrying out of the way early in the project, not when it’s too late to do something about it and all you can do is throw money at it. (The Project Success Method) really changed my life.”
PSI has been implementing team driven planning with near-term activity durations of only 1-2 weeks and recommending continuous improvement of the project plan through weekly/bi-weekly updates since 1983 – Agile was not developed until the early 2000’s.
