Project Management

AlRiham has an impressive track record of providing our clients with proven project management consulting solutions that are both effective and cost-efficient. Not only do our consultants have the experience to roll-up their sleeves to help drive your high-priority project to successful completion, but they also have the expertise to mentor your personnel through the process of adopting a more structured approach. If you require a customized approach, AlRiham personnel will work with your organization to deliver near-term successes on your projects while moving your organization in the right direction.

Our consultants are required to be certified by the Project Management Institute (PMI). With three different levels of consultants, we are equipped to take on many different roles and provide a broad range of services including: project management training, mentoring, and on-site project office development.

Our Senior Consultants lead large cross-functional project teams on challenging projects. They regularly facilitate:

  • Program charters that define scope and goals
  • High-level and detailed network-based schedules
  • Activity identifications, including durations, responsibilities and resources
  • The time-cost tradeoff process and validation of schedules
  • Staffing analysis
  • Validation and compression of schedules
  • Establishment of governance procedures, standard reports, coding structures, metrics and templates
  • Implementation of Project Offices

Our Consultants lead cross-functional project teams on small- to medium-sized projects. They regularly facilitate:

  • Program charters that define scope and goals
  • Work Breakdown Structures that identify work phases, deliverables, and activities
  • High-level and detailed network-based schedules
  • Activity identifications, including durations, responsibilities and resources
  • Validation and compression of schedules
  • Generation of status memos for key stakeholders
  • Client instruction in the use of project management tools/methods

Our Project Coordinators work under the direct supervision of the onsite Senior Consultant or Consultant to:

  • Generate reports to inform stakeholders of project status
  • Identify areas that need attention by the project manager
  • Enter data into the project management software
  • Update project files during the normal schedule update cycle
  • Update Web sites, shared drives and databases
  • Serve as an onsite expert in project management software tools

AlRiham knows from experience that implementing structured project planning and control techniques can be difficult. They’re a departure from the norm for many organizations, and resistance to change should be expected-and even planned on.

Companies have varying levels of project management knowledge, which is why a “one-size-fits-all” approach won’t work. It doesn’t recognize differences in project types, management and staff capabilities, and organizational culture. Our project management consultants not only are excellent facilitators; they’re also well trained and experienced in recognizing these differences and providing customized project management solutions to overcome them.

PMO Development

An internal Project Management Office (PMO) gives organizations the ability to achieve consistently successful results across their entire portfolio of projects-creating a foundation that can turn project management into a competitive advantage. Whether your organization is just beginning to explore the benefits of a formal PMO, or your existing PMO is not achieving the results management has intended, AlRiham can help take your PMO to the next level.

A Project Office fulfills two essential roles

  • It provides enterprise-level project management services.
  • It serves as a project management center of excellence.

Implementing a formalized project management process in an organization that has not used a structured approach to project planning and control can present significant challenges. Our phased approach to implementation helps companies overcome resistance to change, allows lessons learned in early phases to be incorporated in the systems installed in later phases, and ensures that a solid foundation of project-level data is available prior to rolling-up enterprise-level information.

AlRiham uses four implementation phases: Initiation, Project-Level Installation, Enterprise-Level Installation, and Maintenance

  • Mobilizes the organization.
  • Remediates any current at-risk projects.
  • Sets the stage for the Installation phases.

This phase includes the selection of pilot projects that have the potential for near-term successes, and the communication of those success stories to the organization.

  • Provides a structured project planning and control process for all targeted projects.
  • Creates the project management infrastructure necessary to support the consistent, successful application of project management techniques by the Project Office on future projects.
  • Provides training and mentoring to the Project Office staff
  • Creates the infrastructure necessary to support business decision-making based on schedule, resource, and cost information “rolled-up” from the entire portfolio of projects.
  • Transitions the day-to-day responsibility for developing and maintaining individual project plans from AlRiham to the Project Office staff.
  • Transitions the responsibility for supporting all of the project management requirements of the organization to the Project Office staff.
  • Ensures long-term continuity by establishing project management as a core competency and an essential function within the organization.
