Transformational Program Assessment

QSM helps you navigate the risks and opportunities of large-scale transformation.

Big change needs big data.

Designed for: Executive program officers and business stakeholders responsible for major transformational IT programs.

When it comes to enterprise IT transformation, the business opportunities are enormous—but so are the technical risks.

QSM can help you avoid the pitfalls.

We’ll provide an independent, unbiased quantitative assessment of your program that focuses on technical feasibility, schedule and cost realism, and product reliability. Then, we’ll explore and present practical alternatives that can get you to market sooner, with lower costs.

Best of all, our monthly health checks throughout the project’s duration will keep you up-to-date with full transparency and real-time forecasting.

Transformational Program Assessment Process

1

Solution Design

We'll get an understanding of your business needs; analyze the technologies, system components, and contractors; then develop a robust, flexible modeling strategy that supports management decision-making.

2

Data Collection

We'll work with your program office to gather requirements and scope information, productivity assumptions, and programmatic constraints on cost, schedule and reliability.

3

Alternative Analysis

We'll build our scenarios to include the schedule release plans, the staffing and skills resource plans, the cash flow and cumulative cost plans and the probability profiles of achieving these goals. We’ll build multiple scenarios that result in cost savings and faster speed to market so that executive managers can make informed decisions and get the best value for their investment.

Health Checks

As new data rolls in on a weekly or monthly basis, our forecasting analytics behave like a GPS system—reacting to new information and creating a revised path forward.
