Project and Program Management

Project and program management success depends on effective leadership.

Regardless of the importance to the enterprise or the size of the investment, many complex projects never achieve their intended objectives or measures of success. Potential project pitfalls are numerous, but the key ingredient for success is an effective project manager.

In today's lean environment, many organizations simply don't have the skilled resources to take on an additional large, complex project. Frequently, businesses come to RSM when their project is in trouble, and they need additional help to turn it around. Others seek assistance with change management to make sure their employees are engaged, trained and ready to be project champions, engaging the organization in new ways of doing business.
