Because success depends on good leadership.
Project & Program Management
Companies are inherently reliant on effective project management to help deliver new products, manage upgrades, and drive organizational initiatives. An astounding 97% of organizations believe project management is critical to business performance and organizational success (PricewaterhouseCoopers).
Yet, according to Harvard Business Review, one in six IT projects have an average cost overrun of 200% and a schedule overrun of 70%. The truth is, effective project management involves a lot more than just creating a schedule or sending a few emails. Well-run projects require a unique blend of leadership, attention to detail, domain experience, people skills, and yes – core project management ability.
Unlike supplemental staffing which is a great choice for projects with low risk and moderate business impact, the OpsVantage Project and Program management service offering is intended for organizations who need are in need of expert project audits, leadership of business critical/high risk projects and project turnarounds.

Independent evaluations of project health are invaluable during the life of a project.
