Rethinking DOD Program Management
Earned Value sprang from inventive DOD teams exploring better ways to manage complex projects. Though EV has matured across the DOD, aerospace and defense contractors, practitioners continue to struggle with the nuances of different project types, policies, and guidance. AzTech leverages its hard-won expertise in these areas to help government agencies and industry contractors navigate EVMS while strictly adhering to the many DOD Program Management directives, instructions, regulations, policies, and guides. This is critical, not only for EVMS compliance, but also for delivering excellent project performance.
In our 30 years of putting Earned Value into practice, we have supported the DOD agencies and contractors to implement EVM principles while maximizing speed, efficiency, and performance. With a 100% success record, we have never seen one of our supported programs fail due to a lack of sound project management.
We have worked with some of the largest U.S. Government Agencies and Contractors. Are you ready to be next?
Here are some of the many governments and industry organizations that we have directly or indirectly supported:
