Services to Diagnose, Treat and Manage Projects Effectively
The right consultant can mean the difference between project success and failure, particularly at critical stages of complex project. Castle Thunder Consulting offers a consultative approach to project management, leadership coaching and business skills education to ensure that your organization receives the right treatment for the problems you actually face.
Castle Thunder Consulting draws from a deep bench of professionals skilled in all aspects of assessment, project and program management, change management and implementation, across a number of industries, so our services are tailored to ensure your success.
Some of our clients refer to Castle Thunder Consulting as a “Project Management Hospital,” an analogy that’s useful in explaining what we can do for you and how we approach each client engagement.
Triage: Project and Organizational Assessment
From the beginning and throughout every engagement, Castle Thunder consultants work to assess what’s happening within the project and the organization. We use interviews, research and analysis with the project champion and other stakeholders, to quickly assess the environment, processes and roles and develop a treatment plan to address both the apparent and the underlying problems. And we continue to assess the status of the project and adjust the treatment plan accordingly.
First Aid & Emergency Care: Immediate Project Management Assistance
When a high-profile, complex project takes a turn for the worse, Castle Thunder Consulting can step in to provide immediate assistance, from re-scoping the project objectives, to defining realistic milestones, recalculating budgets, revising processes, and aligning resources. Getting a critical project back on its feet is the top priority, but we also stand ready to recommend an appropriate plan for keeping the project moving in the right direction after our engagement ends.
Surgery: Project Turnarounds & Shutdowns
On those occasions when assessments confirm that a project is in deep trouble, Castle Thunder works with the client to determine how to proceed. We know that turning around a project is complex and challenging, requiring not only immediate action, but a longer-term approach to uncovering and repairing the underlying problems within the team…and often in the larger organization. When shutting down the project is the best course of action, Castle Thunder follows a proven methodology to minimize impact on the organization.
Health Maintenance & Wellness: PMO Design & Best Practices…
When your organization understands the value in setting up a program management office, you can rely on Castle Thunder Consulting to collaborate with your team to identify resources, train staff and implement the PMO launch for maximum effectiveness. If your project portfolio is pretty healthy but understaffed, Castle Thunder Consulting can also augment your PMO and project teams to ensure the projects stay on track and on budget.
Castle Thunder Consulting is different. We approach every engagement as if it’s our only engagement, and we customize our consulting services to address exactly what you need—no more and no less—to exceed expectations.
