Project Management
We take responsibility for successful outcomes and then meet the expectations that you place upon us. We believe that the challenges to successful Project Management are not just Technical - we believe that projects fail because of failures in Coordination, Control, and Communication. Our successful initiatives begin with methodologies and processes to provide these. Our professional resources employ both Saybrook-developed and industry-accepted 'best practices' to ensure that these core management elements are in place and continuously engaged throughout the planning and execution stages.

The Benefits realized by our clients from our project managers are:
> Independent advocacy free of attachment to or association with financial outcomes of the project.
> Objective assessment and analysis - coupled with prompt 'tell it like it is' reporting.
> Knowledge parity with and between all stakeholders.
> Solutions. Options and Recommendations - for every problem or challenge. We provide alternatives for consideration and review.
> Alignment of stakeholder needs with project and organizational goals

Case Study
An international pharmaceutical company with a $1 billion capital-building program asked us to evaluate existing cost management processes. Our team found that:
> The estimate development techniques used as the basis of funding were not consistent company wide, and in some cases, were not based upon generally accepted best practices.
> Cost structures were inconsistent between locations, and could not easily be "rolled-up" to the corporate level. They were also burdensome in their detail and focused upon commodity rather than deliverable.
> Cost reporting was overly simplistic, and capital-cost accounts did not align with the corporate financial accounts.
As a result, we were asked to overhaul their capital-cost management system. Our team, along with the appropriate corporate stakeholders:
> Developed a work-breakdown structure that made deliverables the primary cost centers
> Implemented a corporate-wide process for measuring and reporting costs
> Simplified cost accounts by moving much of the detail into higher levels of capture
> Instituted performance-based analysis capabilities, and incorporated trending into the cost-at-completion measurement
We then developed corporate-wide curriculum, procedures, and training to assure that these new measures were implemented appropriately.

Our client now enjoys a simpler and more effective way of managing costs using standardized methods. They can easily analyze performance-based expenditures and anticipate negative trends. By integrating capital costs into the finance and accounting structure, the company gains an accurate classification of assets to better support corporate goals.
