Managing a program requires sound Program Planning & Controls (PP&C). To establish an effective PP&C capability requires talented, focused people, proven processes and cutting edge tools. Too often one or more of these three is missing or ineffective. The challenge that this presents is often exacerbated by the fact that most government contracts have Earned Value Management System (EVMS) requirements that must be met.
SMA understands the PP&C challenge and has implemented a management framework to evaluate and bring the right people, processes and tools to any engagement. SMA brings industry leading solutions, the most qualified teams, our quick and “right-sized” approach and our commitment to bringing the power of SMA thought leadership and network of subject matter experts to every engagement.
