Cherokee Services Group is committed to the highest level of program management, project management and contract administration. CSG’s government program managers are certified as Project Management Professionals (PMP) by the Project Management Institute (PMI).
Combining solid experience and ongoing education, Cherokee Services Group’s program managers apply a well-defined approach to managing performance, which allows the company to adapt easily to the level of formality appropriate for each customer project or task. CSG accomplishes this by integrating its best practices with the policies, standards and processes established by the client and by tailoring tools and procedures to support the effective management of its tasks and employees.
Cherokee Services Group’s project management methodology is built on proven practices and applies sound project management principles that adhere to the PMI Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). It recognizes that a key ingredient for the success of government projects is the expert application of project management skills and practices in a collaborative environment. Establishing clear, agreed-upon priorities ensures proper focus is maintained and helps generate the highest level of return.
At the beginning of a project, Cherokee Services Group works closely with the client to establish a solid planning foundation that is used throughout the effort. The company’s PMI-certified program managers rely on careful scope control, risk management, measurement and communication to deliver projects successfully. This is supported by an array of detailed planning tools, such as work breakdown structure (WBS) definitions, formal task estimating techniques, critical path analysis and optimization, and earned value management (EVM) standards.
On an ongoing basis, Cherokee Services Group’s project managers provide consistent, clear communication of progress, status, budget and ongoing operations, ensuring its customers are fully informed regarding the health and success of a project or program.
