Project Management

For your project to be successful, we need to be successful. In Project Management this entails simultaneously managing the four basic elements of a project: resources, time, money, and most importantly, scope. All these elements are interrelated. Each must be managed effectively.

With a proven track record, we can assist you managing:

  • resources - people, equipment, & material;
  • time - task durations, dependencies, & critical path;
  • money - costs, contingencies, & profit; and
  • scope - project size, goals, & requirements.

Webinar Production

With the advent of the Internet and new developments in cross-platform technologies to conduct meetings, seminars, presentations, and training at a distance, there is now an easier, more efficient and effective way to keep in touch with your customers, clients, stakeholders, staff, and constituents.

Our skilled professionals can assist you in designing productions that will help you meet your goals; whether they be for conveying information, driving demand, creating opportunities, reaching consensus, or sensing needs. Our Webinar practice is based on years of experience in planning and producing engaging and effective web seminars. We can assist you using your present solution, or recommend and help you use one that provides a flexible and friendly platform so you can concentrate on your key needs.

We help you conduct meetings, trainings, presentations and events, anytime, anywhere without traveling. Most platforms allow you to share documents, presentations, poll your audience and use a white board for taking notes. Most also include public and private chat features and the ability to archive the entire meeting for later playback. We also can help you meet the requirements of Section 508, an important consideration for Federal entities.

Let us manage your next online event for you from planning and event production to post-event activities.


Technology and IT Planning

Are your organization's business goals and your IT department's plans at odds? Creating and monitoring a comprehensive technology plan that aligns with your organization's mission and business approach is essential to ensuring the success of your organization.

And whose responsibility is it? For many IT professionals, the amount of time it takes to develop such a plan, and the skills of facilitating diverse groups through the processes required to develop it, makes technology planning a overwhelming task.

Our professionals have extensive experience in developing such plans--especially in the education sector. We will help you understand the "Total Cost of Ownership." We can assist you step-by-step or direct you to resources that will allow you to independently work though the process of developing a technology plan that is aligned with your business goals, as well help design the tasks and activities required to monitor and carry it out.


Information Dissemination & Knowledge Management

With great increases in the global Internet population, a homepage is an efficient and powerful tool for disseminating information. Government information, in brief or in detail, can be presented to a wide spectrum of local or distant users in the shortest possible time at minimal efforts. Organizations also need to give attention to Knowledge Management, that is, making the best use of knowledge that is available to their organization, creating new knowledge, and increasing awareness and understanding in the process.

Federal and local Government agencies and departments should make full use of the medium to disseminate information. Indeed, the general public expects to find in Government homepages information that is available in other media. Information dissemination on the Internet and in other media should generally be simultaneous. Other organizations such as non-profits, education institutions, small businesses, also face these same opportunities and challenges.

We can help by assessing the information assets your organization has readily available, and then determine what should be made available on your homepages. We can help you explore dissemination strategies such as RSS, Podcasts, Weblogs (Blogs), Electronic Mailing Lists, and Webinars; and assist your organization in making decisions that support your marketing and business goals.
