Program Management

Better strategy execution through sound program management 

We help companies to achieve their strategic goals by (1) running complex, global initiatives, (2) becoming part of your team, or (3) building a Program Management Office (PMO). We have led programs in over 30 countries for multinational companies related to:

Process Improvement

  • Order to Cash

  • Purchase to Pay

  • FP&A Optimization

  • Systems implementation

  • Divestitures/Spin-offs

  • Global Business Services

  • Outsourcing & Supply Chain

  • Organizational Design

  • M&A Integration

  • Finance Transformation

Changes are ongoing everywhere. Sometimes it’s a financial crisis, it’s the threat from a competitor, growth just hits a wall, it’s the opportunity to ride a global megatrend, or it’s simply the result of planning for the future.  

 “As every strategic initiative is essentially a project or program, more companies are understanding the value that program management brings to them. It is about doing more with less and attaining the goals outlined by the strategic initiative. A haphazard approach is too risky as any initiative must be done right the first time around”
