We Are Your Independent & Experienced “Set of Eyes”
In Your Project …
How confident are you that industry standards and processes are being applied in your system acquisition activities?
Can you identify managerial and technical weaknesses impacting project cost, schedule, and/or performance?
Is your staff aware of all the technological issues affecting successful, multi-platform system integration?
Is there a process for determining when and how upgrades to your system should be performed?
In today’s high-tech age, leading IT organizations invest a great deal of time and money to ensure their system acquisition projects perform to specified requirements, and that they are delivered on time and on budget. The success of these systems depends heavily on management’s ability to accurately determine, measure and track project status. Remember – “You can’t manage what you don’t measure, and you can’t measure what you don’t know about.”
PRO-CONCEPTS Project Risk Assessments provide managers with essential data on issues affecting project cost, schedule, and performance that are both measurable and manageable. Our risk assessments are a manager’s first line of defense against being blindsided by one of these “program issues.” The earlier and the more frequently these issues are identified, the quicker decision-makers can assess your program status and take the necessary corrective actions to minimize their impact on cost, schedule, and performance.
Using one our evaluation tools, the PRO-CONCEPTS assessment team conducts focused interviews of key program management, system development, and contractor personnel. By involving the principal stakeholders in the interview process, we can quickly identify internal and external program risks, thereby maximizing data collection and effectiveness. Our process is non-intrusive and non-threatening. By firmly adhering to a predefined schedule, we minimize the impact on your project staff and schedule. Most large-scale projects can be thoroughly evaluated within two to three days. All assessment findings are kept strictly confidential between our assessment team and the customer.
The PRO-CONCEPTS risk assessments process involves documenting, analyzing, and reporting all identified program issues and risks. Our team can quickly zero in on those risks that pose the greatest and immediate threat to your project’s cost, schedule and performance. The assessment team will then provide recommended mitigation strategies for those for the most critical project risks. At the conclusion of each assessment, the PRO-CONCEPTS presents the customer with a comprehensive briefing and final report that summarize our risk assessment findings.
