Our unique end to end project controls support and service model supports our clients from the very preliminary stages of assessing a project’s feasibility, to completion close to or at baseline – and all the stages in between.

In some cases we work with clients for the project’s duration and beyond.

In others, we’re procured to achieve a one time specific outcome, like provisioning specialized software.

No matter where you are in your project lifecycle, we provide a robust suite of high value products and services that drive better project and business outcomes.

Our decades of project experience, up-to date, specialized knowledge of today’s cutting edge project tools and technologies, dedication with data driven decision making and detached objectivity give your organization and project the invaluable Power of Perspective.

01 – Investigation & Analysis:

In this phase we’ll ask a lot of questions.

Our data driven approach means we like to get all the information before we comment on what the next steps could look like.

This approach saves time and resources on the back end of your endeavour, and will inform our recommendations and proposed solutions.

Sometimes our clients ask us to provide information on next steps, while others prefer the information assessment and presentation of conclusions.

No matter your project controls needs, or where you are in the project lifecycle we’re pleased to offer the following services:

Needs analysis:

When there are problems with project or organizational performance, it isn’t always obvious what the root cause is.

That’s where The Power of Perspective can provide real value.

Petroglyph Projects will analyze the symptoms and trace them to the source of the issues impacting business or project objectives.

Document discovery  

Prior to creating a project estimate or baseline, a careful analysis of documents and data is performed through the process of document discovery.

This phase is especially important due to the contractual obligations and penalties that can occur for extending the project beyond the baseline of schedule or cost.

Assess project challenges & deliverables

Once all the data and documents have been collected the analysis can begin.

Risk and feasibility assessments are a strategically prudent use of resources.

Leverage our expertise and experience to either challenge or validate your project team’s work. Protect your project against unseen risks and the cost of project overages.

04 – Evaluate & Iterate

We’re dedicated to improving project outcomes through the data driven Power of Perspective.

At this stage, we’ve been working on your project and it’s time to evaluate the results of our efforts, projections and data driven assumptions.

At this time we also assess our support services and ask – are more or less resources required?

We’re always working to improve. Measuring and evaluating progress on a regular basis is just another way we demonstrate our dedication to providing outstanding value.

No matter where you are in the project lifecycle we’re pleased to provide flexible, personalized support tailored to meet your business and project objectives:

Evaluate Progress, Path To Optimization

You can’t improve what you don’t measure.

Verifying suppositions, measuring and analyzing progress and iterating as needed takes into account any unseen variables and corrects any deviations before they become problematic.

Iterate Support Services, Scale as Needed

Aligning all the resources required to complete a complex infrastructure on a tight schedule is no small feat.

In our experience, no matter how thorough projections and assessments are initially, impossible to predict situations still occur and threaten the baseline.

We’re prepared for unforeseen circumstances and the chance additional resources will be required within a very short timeframe, or the scope of work of existing supports needs to be extended.

Our flexible support services offer the ability to scale with the needs of the project. When your project team needs additional support, we will be there.  Conversely, we can wrap up and exit the project with remarkable speed.

05 – Customize & Standardize

Ultimately, the objective is to support the project team to maintain the project pace without our direct input.

Together we identify the path to peak performance.

Next, we streamline, outline, identify and create the structures, systems, project and reporting templates and guidelines to ensure effective workflows & processes, software usage and reporting metrics and baselines.

Adopted to each organization’s specific needs and desired project outcomes, the support structures created in this phase act as training tools while also streamlining use of resources and providing redundancy services.

Customized & Standardized Workflow

Standardized and customized workflow services create a structure by which all resources are controlled effectively.

Installing processes that provide repeatable, reliable outcomes is key to operational efficiency, staffing redundancy protection and scaling teams effectively.

Learn more about Customized & Standardized Workflow

Dashboard Reporting

Establishing the baseline and the rate of work by which baseline can be attained is a critical first step to success.  Effectively monitoring project progress is accomplished first through standardization of key metrics, each reporting period. Together, we identify the metrics that matter and set up dashboard reporting to deliver this data regularly.
