This was more fun than building a HACCP plan.

Program and Project Management

We see what others don’t

Program and Project Management

A periscope is a special tool used on a submarine to allow them to see above the surface, above the waves, to see what otherwise would not be seen. The user must be trained, not merely to raise and lower the “scope” but more importantly, to quickly recognize what they see, and act decisively on that information. In this same way, projects by Periscope Consulting utilize special tools to see what otherwise would not be seen, and we have training and experience to act decisively on that information. We have considerable success managing and commissioning $10 million to $50 million projects. Our food processing project experience includes sanitary process design, new product development and installation of food production lines, utilities and packaging equipment. 

Specialized knowledge includes aseptic processing, aseptic packaging·and CIP systems.

We have experience in managing software upgrades, ERP enhancements and·logistic improvements.·We have also led projects in sales support and vendor managed inventory (VMI).

Periscope Consulting can help your company set up internal systems for Program Management·and Project Management, or we can run major projects for you.· We can also help you establish a·PMO, and project portfolios.

Scope and Schedule Checkup

It isn’t always necessary to hire Periscope Consulting on a full-time basis to run a large project. You may have the resources in-house to run the project on your own. But if the project is complex and has high visibility, you may want to have:

  • Reassurance that you haven’t missed things what will cause trouble later.
  • Confirmation that your schedule is complete
  • A mentor for a less-seasoned PM
  • What you want is a confidence that you are getting the project off on the right foot, in a way that

    minimizes risk and saves time!

    This is where our offering for a “Scope and Schedule Checkup” comes in. For a small, fixed cost and a very little time, we come on your site and:

  • Confirm your existing scope and schedule are thorough and realistic, or
  • Update your scope and schedule to a level of granularity that will
    • Improve execution
    • Reduce Risk
    • Provide “early alerts” to schedule slips
    • Focus on specific tasks with the greatest schedule importance (hint: it isn’t always what you think it is).
    • Provide a benchmark to measure progress.

How can we do this? By placing a senior program manager on your site (job site or office) to conduct a series of exercises with your project team. We have designed these exercises in a specific sequence to minimize the impact on your team while securing the most robust engagement.

We can do this in a week, and leave you with clear, written deliverables that are yours to use for the duration of the project.

Call or email us today to schedule your checkup. The fee is fixed and we are done in a week!
