Unlock Your Potential

Xcelerate’s Project, Program & Portfolio Management (3PM) approach is focused on understanding our client’s mission, building trust, and taking over the routine, but necessary, management tasks. This enables our client to focus on program direction and strategy. We apply tools, templates, and lessons learned within a culture of partnership with client management; measurable delivery performance; proactive risk management; and timely and meaningful communications with stakeholders.

Rely on Our Expertise

The objectives of 3PM are to determine the optimal resource mix to best achieve an organization’s operational and financial goals, while honoring constraints imposed by customers, strategic objectives, and external real-world factors. Xcelerate’s support of Government PMOs benefits from incorporation of industry best practices and lessons learned from other client engagements. Our management methods are based on industry-standard frameworks, which we scale to our clients’ scope and size to achieve business goals and objectives. This service area includes optimizing performance through focused and centralized Project Management, Program Management, Portfolio Management, and Acquisition Support.

 

 

Project Management

Project management is the process and activity of planning, organizing, motivating, and controlling resources, procedures, and protocols to achieve specific project goals. We achieve those goals by applying industry-standard best practices such as the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) process groups of Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling, and Closing.

Program Management

Xcelerate takes program management to the next level through skillful management of concurrent, related projects, by identifying and managing cross-project dependencies to improve overall organizational performance. We apply scalable, repeatable processes to ensure that every aspect of the program is optimized. Xcelerate’s processes provide the program manager with visibility of the purpose and status of each project and the overall program and with support of project-level activity, ensuring that the goals of individual projects within the program are met.

Portfolio Management

Many program offices and directorates have a single budget, but independent programs, systems, and projects to manage. Xcelerate portfolio management helps clients look across the entire portfolio, prioritize project selection, assess investment opportunities, and make informed decisions on allocating limited resources.

Acquisition Support

Xcelerate’s team includes Subject Matter Experts across the entire acquisition lifecycle including acquisition planning, contracts, cost and price analysis, acquisition documentation, technical training, and source selection. We can provide accurate, cost-effective solutions for complex acquisition problems, to augment the acquisition workforce or to integrate with program offices to provide specialized acquisition support for complex procurements.
