I want to take a moment to acknowledge your team and the work that you do on behalf of our office. My team and I, specifically manage 61 actions, totaling $171,911,667.41 in value. Your team’s contributions have been invaluable towards this work. With such a demanding workload and given our current staffing shortages, we simply could not do our job without you and your team. I have worked with many companies in my lengthy acquisition career and I have never worked with a company as engaged, committed, and dedicated to excellence. Thank you for your continued responsiveness, expertise, and professional contribution throughout the fiscal year.

The staff has provided excellent work in terms of quality and timeliness. SDV’s team has planned out the workload and milestones for several key projects and maintained critical program schedules. The SDV staff is flexible and engaged in our activities and keeps themselves available for new assignments and changes in direction on assigned tasks.
— Division Manager, Federal Aviation Administration
We accomplished the initial goal. And it could not have been done without your staff’s support. They were tremendous, dedicated, focused during the entire 2 weeks and just wanted to extend my gratitude to them. It was grueling, boring at times, and time consuming but they were troopers. Their knowledge, thoughtfulness and attention to detail made it easy to make quick decisions, arrive at solutions, minimize confusions and mitigate any delays. I could not have asked for a better team for this effort.

Highly Experienced Program & Project Managers

SDV INTERNATIONAL provides highly experienced program managers and project managers with the leadership capabilities to successfully guide, manage, and support high-visibility initiatives.  Whether you require resources long term or short term, SDV INTERNATIONAL has the flexibility and talent to accommodate your resource needs. We specialize in:

  • Recovering troubled projects
  • Interim leadership
  • Filling skill set gaps
  • Supplementing resources when demand exceeds capacity
  • Project management training

We work with clients when they need to deploy a new PMO, operate a PMO, or optimize and enhance an existing PMO to meet a set of evolving challenges, functions, and services.

 

Deploying a New PMO

The first step SDV INTERNATIONAL takes in deploying a PMO is to assess the current environment and develop a deployment roadmap incorporating your organization’s culture and operating practices. We work with our clients to identify, prioritize, and establish a set of fundamental PMO functions and services. Deployment includes establishing governance standards, developing the PMO Charter and communications plan, identifying resource needs and performance measures, incorporating the right amount of repeatable delivery processes to fit your culture, and improving the competencies of your staff through training and mentoring. Emphasis is on the PMO providing an organizational entity focused on improving the management of client programs.

 

Operating a PMO

When project management is not a core competency for our clients, they consider outsourcing the PMO. SDV INTERNATIONAL works in partnership with our clients to understand their goals and establish a structure that will achieve those goals. We evaluate what our clients currently have in place and will complement them. Constant communication, incorporating organizational change management, is a core tenet of a successful PMO. Performance measures are collectively established upfront with our clients, and progress toward established goals is continually evaluated via quality and performance reviews.

 

Enhancing a PMO

PMOs are consistently being challenged to provide additional value to their organizations. To meet business demands, projects must be completed faster and at lower cost. SDV INTERNATIONAL helps our clients take their PMO to the next level by evaluating existing PMO structure and providing recommendations targeted to enhance it. To do this, we develop a transformational roadmap, identifying areas of opportunity, and work collaboratively with our clients to create an implementation plan for deployment. Common areas of focus for this type of transformation may include enhanced visibility, Project Management competency evaluations, program resource optimization, demand management of both projects and operations, and organizational change facilitation. PMOs offering this level of service govern with a senior management focus on strategic issues and facilitate change across the organization.
