Project and program management

During CFSU’s project management assignments, we place great emphasis on project quality assurance and high-level expert support to achieve our clients’ strategic goals. Depending on the type of project, we always select the methodology and tools we want to use, whether it is the classical project management methodology and the use of the waterfall model, or the agile or lean methodology.

One of the great benefits of using different methodologies is that it saves time, allows you to better track and perform planning, and optimizes resource management. The goals of the project are thus clearly better achieved. The use of appropriate methodologies also allows for quality assurance and ongoing control.

The outstanding project management competencies of our leading consultants are complemented by 15-20 years of professional experience in various fields, thus guaranteeing a high level of quality assurance. In order to motivate and control project organizations, the program or project manager must have the appropriate leadership skills. Key leadership competencies include conflict management, motivational skills, project team management, proficiency in negotiation and communication techniques, knowledge of different decision-making procedures, and the ability to manage tasks in parallel.

The aim of our work is that the tasks and projects running in parallel strengthen each other’s effectiveness through synergy.
