PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Spear has found that the key to effective management control lies in the fundamentals on which the processes are based. Spear has developed what we consider to be the essential elements of effective management control processes. These elements include scope definition; organization participation and buy-in; approved baselines for cost and schedule; established performance measurement; and timely and meaningful reporting. In all of these elements, we emphasize the importance of easily understandable and workable methodology, procedures, and support systems. If followed and adhered to, the resulting processes will result in successfully managed programs and projects. Spear utilizes commercially available software, such as Primavera, SAP, MS Project, Ariba, Timberline, etc. or adapts to other client specified systems in project control execution.
