Introducing project management

In confronting an ongoing confluence of internal and externally-based challenges, our clients need to find efficient, impactful and cost-effective approaches to managing the various projects that are vital to key areas of company performance. That is why Ulteig offers Project Management Services to its clients.

The situation is made all the more difficult by the sheer number of variables that need to be managed across all of these projects – ranging from schedule and cost performance, resource allocation, and ensuring that the appropriate and experienced personnel are available and assigned to do the work.

To help our electric utility clients meet this need, Ulteig has developed a comprehensive Project Management service offering that provides the capability assessment, project management expertise and operational controls that ensure that our client’s projects are delivered on time and on budget. This service provides a customized, yet flexible set of solutions to meet the unique requirements of our client’s operating environment, avoiding a “one size fits all” approach. Our Project Management solutions focus on four core areas:

  • People
  • Organization
  • Processes
  • Technology

Ulteig’s Project Management solutions improve client operating cost and project schedule, quality, performance and risk management. Our systematic and collaborative methodology provides our client with confidence throughout the process.

Since 2010, Ulteig became increasingly involved with complex multi-discipline renewable projects. Dedicated project management was a conceived solution for this more complex work. The core focus of the project managers was scope and budget management and project schedule coordination. With initial success, a formal Project Management Department became part of Ulteig’s 2012 strategic plan.

Today, the Project Management Department manages 95% of Ulteig’s nearly 1,100 projects delivered from its four technical service areas. As our Project Management Department matured, it constantly delivered high performance and results both internally and externally. Our clients rapidly realized the value proposition we delivered and we soon became their trusted project management advisor.

In a series of articles, we will explore in more detail our project management perspectives and services including: importance of relationships; project management maturity; project management assessment and implementation; staffing and resource allocation; project management office; project portfolio management; change management; project management processes and technology. We will explore the challenges faced, solutions to these challenges and value derived through disciplined execution.
