PERFORM successfully...


Managing programs requires integrated solutions tailored to address the unique cost, schedule, and technical challenges of each program. We understand these challenges, and we have implemented a management framework to assess your enterprise and/or program needs, and bring the right people, process, and tools to any engagement. For more than 20 years, we have provided solutions that incorporate proven best practices, developed by industry leading program planning & control, and program & technical management subject matter experts.

In the last year, we have helped clients win $10bn of international business.

This success is because we:

  • Have a global perspective. In the last year we have delivered projects in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
  • Are independent. We are not captive to existing biases or internal politics. We only want to get the best possible view of what it will take to win new business.
  • Have a great network. In many countries we have connections at the Head of State or Ministerial level. We also have a deep network of retired U.S. and U.K. Intelligence Officers, Diplomats and Military Officers. We can always find someone who has insight.
  • Go in person. We send a senior team into the field and use our network to access decision makers and real insiders. We don’t believe you can get real insight from an office inside the Beltway.
  • Use a proven methodology. Our analytical approach to stakeholder mapping and decision analysis replaces anecdotes with evidence. We are strategic advisors, not “door openers.”
