Project Management Methodology

As reported by the Center for Business Practices, organizations that have adopted a standard project management methodology have realized a 63% improvement in delivering projects successfully. 

USDM Life Sciences’ Project Management Maturity Model (PMMM) is a patented methodology that supports the active use of repeatable processes across all projects within your organization. Developed over more than a decade, the PMMM contains easy-to-follow forms, templates and guidelines that can be applied immediately to improve project execution and operational efficiency.

When implementing a project management methodology for your organization, USDM factors in your existing management best practices. Implementation is a collaborative process with ownership of the final methodology in your hands. Our methodology implementation approaches are designed to foster organizational buy-in and acceptance and make adoption of a standard methodology welcomed within your project culture.

Methodology Development Services:

USDM begins by reviewing the project management and related methodologies you have in place. USDM Project and Program managers are familiar with and trained in several project management methodologies, such as Lean, Agile, Waterfall, Projects IN Controlled Environments (PRINCE), Method 123 Project Management (MPMM), Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK), etc.  We then identify areas where your methodology would benefit from enhancement and tighter integration with your other management processes. Leveraging our patented Project Management Maturity Model, USDM selects and tailors the appropriate tools and content to fit your desired project objectives and cultural threshold. Working closely in collaboration with your project team, we make sure the resulting methodology has a look and feel that suits your organization.

Methodology Deployment and On-going Support:

To successfully launch the methodology, we work in collaboration with you to develop the appropriate deployment plan that ranges from individual tutoring, conducting pilots to full deployment, depending on the size and complexity. The deployment plan includes the delivery of methodology workshops led by our methodology consulting team. Methodology coaches are also available to work one-on-one with your staff on specific projects to ensure that the methodology is firmly in place.
