Program Management/PMO

Greater efficiency, a reduced risk of project failures, and an improved return on investment

When an organization is in need of a comprehensive project management solution, SPS’s PMO serves as a resource to ensure that all the projects within any department or division are managed consistently and, more importantly, are working toward the same goals. This leads to greater efficiency, a reduced risk of project failures, and an improved return on investment.

Our methods produce more efficient and effective processes, including an Earned Value Management (EVM) approach that establishes accurate accountability of cost, schedule, and performance.

Our PMO methodology is modeled after the Project Management Institute’s (PMI’s) Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®).

The senior level management that SPS’s PMO provides ensures that our clients not only benefit from the centralized control, but also gain from the experience of our personnel who have “been there and done that”.
