CPM Definition and Startup:Helping to get things started
What is it?
Our Critical Program Management (CPM) Startup solution provides all the needed templates and processes to define and start a critical program. We believe that program objectives, mission goals and business value can only be achieved when supported by robust processes and plans for program management, change management, quality assurance, configuration management and risk management. We also use this solution for defining team organization and composition and we use a non-traditional approach to building our team. We look beyond the traditional Program Management functions in order to ensure that our clients are successful. In order to competently oversee and support work streams within the program, we bring on resources that are able to see both sides of the coin. They understand the ins and outs from the development perspective as well as from the program management perspective in order to thoughtfully advise our clients.

If you want to secure funding and stand up a new program, and you want to benefit from existing and proven templates and processes.
