Program & Project Management:

 

Project management is the discipline of planning, organizing, and controlling resources to achieve specific goals. The temporary nature of projects stands in contrast with business as usual (or operations), which are repetitive, permanent, or semi-permanent functional activities. In practice, the management of these two systems is often quite different, and as such requires the development of distinct technical skills and management strategies.

 

The primary challenge of project management is to achieve all of the project goals and objectives while honoring the preconceived constraints of scope, time, quality and budget. The secondary —and more ambitious— challenge is to optimize the allocation of resources and integrate them to meet pre-defined objectives.

 

Program management plays a significant role in ensuring that all projects meet operational, cost, budget, and time-related goals. In a complex business environment, effective program management can help control and manage cross-dependencies across multiple project implementations.

 

Outcomes Consulting Services works with clients to develop a clear plan for successful program outcomes by integrating planning, budgeting, and operations. By drawing measureable connections from organizational processes to program outcomes, we enable clients to make better decisions, manage costs, and achieve organizational goals across the entire lifecycle of a project or program.
