Our Project Management Services Also Include
Every project has specific expectations as to cost, duration and outcomes. By establishing a realistic schedule at the start of a project, organizations dramatically increase the probability of their project meeting and exceeding expectations.
HTA Consulting Group works with our clients to develop itemized, resource-loaded project schedules that are realistic and constructed using industry best practices, to help in planning and managing projects. We provide cost, planning, and scheduling management services on projects in multiple industries. We provide owners with constant feedback and information to ensure successful project execution. Our detailed approach leads to enhanced cost and schedule management and increases the likelihood of achieving planned cost and schedule goals.
Effective program management requires developing and maintaining detailed program schedules for all program phases. Our schedule management services include developing master, objective, design phase, construction, and commissioning/close-out schedules; reviewing contractor schedules; setting time and liquidated damages, and providing value scheduling. Using a critical path method (CPM), we prepare and update master schedules that portray summary level activities for each phase of large, complex construction projects.
HTA Consulting Group uses a methodology that guides you through each stage of the project lifecycle.
To best accommodate customer needs, our standard methodology is built with the flexibility to manage projects in both agile and traditional waterfall approaches. Standard deliverables are managed by project managers, reviewed by practice and regional leadership, and supported by PMO and teams. Choosing the correct project delivery method is an important step toward ensuring successful results. While there are advantages and disadvantages to each method—depending on schedule and budgets restraints and project complexity— HTA Consulting Group ensures that each method is carefully considered when developing an overall implementation strategy.
