Introducing a new product and/or related services without a clear vision and strategy for the entire company is setting the company on a pathway to failure. Some of the key questions we help our clients address are – What is our driving force? Do we want to be a local, regional, or international company? Do we understand our customer needs? What environmental/safety changes will impact our business in the near future? Who are our major competitors? Who will become a competitor through technogical breakthroughs? What technology will we need to embrace for our long-term future?

Our detailed disciplined strategic planning process provides the basis for comprehensive answers to these questions.

Baldrige Model for Organizational Performance Excellence

The Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award (MBNQA) is presented annually by the President of the United States to organizations that demonstrate quality and performance excellence. Three awards may be given annually in each of six categories:

> Manufacturing > Service Companies> Small Business> Education> Healthcare> Nonprofit

The Award Recipients are selected based on their achievement in seven areas known as the Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence:

> Leadership> Strategic Planning> Customer and Market Focus> Measurement, Analysis and Knowledge Management> Employee Focus> Process Management> Business Results

A team of highly trained examiners/evaluators will review the selected companies through a detailed examination of the documented performance and a physical examination on-site. After a thorough review and examination, the company is awarded the Baldrige Award in their field of Endeavour.

We have served on evaluation teams for the Banking, Healthcare, and manufacturing sectors.

Project Management, when executed properly, will accomplish three things:

• Projects are completed on time and budget

• Effective team communications

We help our clients:

• Define the project manager’s role and critical succes factors

• Establish the “project Office”

• Develop the cross-functional team structure

• Develop the Work Breakdown and task

The project manager must function within the Project Management Body of Knowledge established by the Project Management Institute (PMI.)

The project manager must manage the project life cycle designated as CDEF-Conceive, Develop, Execute, Finish and the Product Life Cycle (PLC) and in some cases the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC.)

The project manager job description is one that involves many skills, as noted in the figure shown on the right. Many of the Skills, Knowledge, and Abilities (SKAs) are those found in general management candidates. However, the project manager must have SKA in many of the functional areas.

At Clinton Consulting we have a deep understanding of the role of the project manager as well as the overall project management process. In the area of Financial Management, we were recognized as a leader and a resource of operational knowledge-Earned Value Management.
