Program & Project Leadership

Strengthen Tactical Execution to Achieve Strategic Goals

The strategic planning process enables an organization to establish its priorities. Their ability to deliver on those goals and objectives will be dictated by the alignment and execution of supporting tactics. Not every company has both the capability and the capacity to provide as much oversight on that front as they would like. Aspirant’s certified program and project management experts help clients achieve their strategic vision by implementing and leading an actionable plan for getting it done.

Adoption of Agile Methodology

Whether an organization seeks improvement over Waterfall project management or the creation of new ways of working, an Agile methodology is typically the right tool for the job. It establishes formality and rigor but also affords flexibility to accommodate circumstances with more ambiguity. Explanations and tips for how to implement agile project management are readily available from any number of online sources, but few companies are willing to take on the risk of managing that transition internally.

Aspirant's certified experts have a track record of leading agile transformation initiatives for companies of varying sizes, complexities, and industries. This requires a functional, practical understanding of applying these methods, including driving adoption through integrated services such as digital transformation and change management.

We call on an intimate understanding of agile methodologies to help clients enable the people, process, and technology needed for long term success.

Tactical Alignment with Strategic Plan

A direct linkage must be maintained between business strategy and tactical execution in order for organizational goals to be achieved. Project management is needed to allocate time, money, and other resources accordingly. Even if there were internal volunteers willing and able to take this on, competing priorities or organizational politics might cloud their judgement.

A more sustainable option is to mitigate that risk by using a qualified, impartial third party. We apply a holistic approach to program evaluation as part of establishing more informed resource planning and project risk management.

Aspirant provides oversight that helps clients ensure strategic continuity, fueling the realization of their company vision.

PMO / Program Management

Centralized program management tends to be a key differentiator for companies that consistently outperform their peers. A centralized project management office (PMO) establishes operating standards and drives accountability amongst delivery teams. This efficiency increases the potential impact to broader organization, but requires dedicated work streams to operate properly.

Aspirant utilizes proprietary AI-powered assessments to evaluate existing program manager capabilities and PMO infrastructure against what is needed. We then collaborate with cross-functional stakeholders to develop operational methods and governance measures to close the identified gaps. Using Agile principles, we help clients lead change management to embed fresh ways of working.

Our holistic approach to management consulting includes supporting the enablement of core competencies that will generate sustainable success.

Project Life Cycle Management

Deadlines, external or self-imposed, are a necessary evil of the business world. And they rarely afford as much time as we would like. Each cycle brings another big push to boost immediate results. However, internal means for making a meaningful difference are hard to come by.

Aspirant helps clients meet short-term goals by providing incremental project manager support. These professionals have the expertise to lead the project management process end-to-end, or take on any specific portion of the project life cycle.
