Project Definition

Keep the big picture in mind, don’t overlook the small stuff—and take things one step at a time.

What we do can be put simply. Make sure you have the right people to do the right things at the right time to deliver the desired output—on time and on budget. But when you factor in the harsh conditions and the engineering complexity of large upstream energy projects, what’s easily stated is less easy to pull off.

Measure twice, cut once

Projects come in all shapes and sizes but share commonalities. When you can see what the risks in a project are—and you can accurately assess the percentages—you stand a high chance of a successful outcome. It comes down to expertise and experience.

Defining the project takes in all aspects from planning and scheduling to how you’ll allocate budgets, control costs and measure performance. How will you manage all the interfaces between stakeholders? And how will you track and mitigate your risk profile as you go? 

We have the industry knowledge to understand what scope of work is feasible and the work breakdown structure needed to realize it. Strategy and execution are all about making decisions under conditions of uncertainty. From authorization for expenditure to organizing project resources and expediting processes, we’ve got the tools and templates you need to manage your schedule and risk profile.

Whatever your requirements, we can tailor our suite of services to provide mentoring and support you need for success. We’ll work with you to make sure you’re mission-ready, so you can push the limits while minimizing the risks.
