Project management typically requires cross-functional coordination of activities with clear start and ending dates and a defined deliverable. When coordination is required between several projects, a more extensive program management must be put in place. In both cases, scheduling, resources, costs and quality are the key dimensions to be managed. While expectations on quality and customization are rising, costs need to be reduced due to competition and budget pressure. In addition, further complexity often comes from the number of different contributors and organizations, internal functions, suppliers and strategic partners. Since its creation, CYLAD Consulting supports major industrial companies of all sizes in defining the right methodology and operational support for their project teams.
"CYLAD did a great job, very good return on investment; we have €10 million savings while in February we had nothing."
