Project Management

Having a goal is nice. Delivering on that goal is material to your business.

Project management is the discipline of initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria.

While that definition is nice, execution is essential. Execution is dependent on ensuring your:

  • Vision is clearly defined and understood
  • The project is well planned
  • The work has measurable results and intermediate milestones
  • Your team, and teams they work with are communicating effectively
  • Any obstacles are immediately communicated so the team can unite to find ways to eliminate or work around them
  • There’s solid process in place that’s easy to manage and doesn’t place undue overhead on getting work done, but clearly facilitates getting work done

We’ve helped others execute projects on a global scale with teams spanning continents and twelve hours of time zones.

We’ll gladly engage to ensure there’s a solid foundation for discussion for your projects as well as process that’s easy to manage, gets work done and provides insight into your teams’ progress.

We can work with the tools of your choice, or implement a solution that’s budget friendly using solutions from Atlassian (Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket), Basecamp, Freedcamp, MS Project, Visio and more.

It’s out belief that engaging the team with a foundation for discussion taps the minds of your most valuable assets; the experience of your people – your most valuable resources.

We believe highly successful teams are formed by giving people the freedom to share ideas and challenges in an appreciative and safe forum. This has worked effectively to deliver products that have resulted in ~80mm in annual revenue, sales of companies for over US$500mm and a sense of team that most would find hard to duplicate – all of which are a great pleasure to orchestrate and observe.
