Knowledge Transfer

Turning insights from one project into actions on the next is one reason our clients value us.

How do you close out a project and capture what happened and why? Do you have a way to make the processes that worked repeatable? And avoid the things that went wrong?

Investigating projects is in our blood. From the firm’s outset nearly two decades ago, our clients quickly realized our project review and risk profiling approach provided a platform for capturing and transferring knowledge within their organizations.

Passing along our knowledge

With well over 200 projects behind us, our knowledge base is unsurpassed. Our people are generally either engineers—who learned project management over decades on the job and through supplementary training—and project management pros who, early in their careers, turned their attention to large-scale engineering projects. 

Because we work in teams across projects, we learn from each other, continually deepening our knowledge of very specific sectors. Our PRIMA methodology and tools distil our technical expertise and project risk management experience and package it for your specific domain.

Capturing lessons from your projects

Complexity increases dramatically when you work on multiple concurrent projects. Our clients value our ability to help them learn from one project to the next across a program. You might perform your own closeout or post mortem analysis. We help you quickly encode those lessons and put them into practice on the next project.

To better understand what we actually do, dive into the stories below.
