The Benefits of DTB Program Management

Typically, and especially in complex projects, there is a need to identify interdependencies of schedules, goals, technologies and costs.

DTB’s Program Managers coordinate goal-scheduling ensuring scope, resources and schedules are properly managed to support a project. We monitor project status communicating risks associated with delivery and budget as well as technical issues.

Some clients employ sophisticated progress monitoring, such as earned value systems that provide metrics during the project. DTB not only fully integrates into these systems but can implement them, as well. These methods can provide a valuable cohesive and informative framework for the completion of your projects.

Popularity of EVM has grown significantly in recent years beyond government contracting, where its importance continues to rise. The use of EVM to affect plans and controls significantly improves both scope definition as well as the analysis of overall project performance. Research has also shown that the principles of EVM are positive predictors of project success.
