Program Planning, Execution & Management
For successful outcomes, programs must align with organizational strategy with not only defined objectives but defined strategy and actions (or projects) to achieve those objectives. And, then these planned actions must be executed and managed against this plan. T. White Parker aids organizations in defining program strategy and aligning programs with organizational strategy. In executing and managing programs, our clients benefit from rigorous acquisition management, monitoring, standardization and issue management resulting in a sustained focus on strategy and successful outcomes. Our frameworks include standardized processes, procedures, and tools to ensure the maturity and consistency of project management within a program or an organization.
Project Planning, Execution & Management
Even as part of a program, a project needs individual attention to ensure achievable project parameters are established and then executed according to program standards. Without effective project execution, its overarching program objectives will be compromised. T. White Parker devises achievable project plans and schedules noting risks and their consequences and tracking issues. T. White Parker also aids project managers in monitoring their project’s performance and facilitating action plans to address issues before significant impact to the project.
Earned Value Management (EVM)
EVM is a systematic approach to integrating and measuring the cost, schedule, and scope of a project. It enables management to examine the health of an initiative in an objective way. T. White Parker program and project management professionals are skilled and experienced in effectively managing and reporting the triple constraint of cost, schedule and scope. We work with our clients to design and deploy effective Earned Value Management Systems (EVMS) that are ANSI compliant, streamlined and practical.
Performance Metrics & Management (PMM)
In project management, performance metrics are used to assess the health of the project. As organizations plunge into project management and establish methodologies, processes and standards, many fail to define a method to measure performance. T. White Parker works with clients to identify what needs to be measured (processes, projects, etc.), define how it is measured (work outputs) and establish targets against which results can be evaluated. We improve our clients’ decision making while adding measureable program/project value. Our teams have implemented performance management scorecards and dashboards as well as defines scorecard workflow, tools and templates for conducting business analytics to consistently monitor and report performance results.
