Project Management

Project management practices influence more than individual projects, they affect the overall health of a organization’s project portfolio.
By setting a solid project management foundation within your organization, you’ll be equipped to do your projects right, a necessary first step to completing your initiatives on time and on budget.

Project Management enables an organization to define, prioritize, understand, and measure the impact of projects on the organization.  It defines the magnitude of resource involvement so you don’t over-commit your teams.  Improve your project portfolio management capabilities, and do the right projects right.

Surge Assembly establishes and improves your project management and project portfolio management processes so that you consistently prioritize and execute the projects tied to your organization’s strategy that will yield the strongest profit and benefits.  With the right project and portfolio management practices in place, you’ll make best use of your time, talent, effort and budget.
