Deltek Cobra Knowledge Transfer, Mentoring and Coaching
Give your team the deep understanding needed to bring new projects online successfully
Ask anyone who has survived an integrated baseline review (IBR) and they’ll tell you that the auditors consider the team’s understanding of earned value principles is crucial. Everything else is secondary.
The key to a successful Earned Value Management (EVM) system hinges on the knowledge and understanding that is transferred to the program team during the initial setup process.
Any implementation consulting company can come in and set up a working system. What differentiates companies is what they are willing to leave behind.
The Ten Six difference
We leave behind exactly what you need to develop the skills and confidence to run your projects with EVM.
Ten Six consultants are committed to working very closely with the project team to make sure that everyone involved understands the system, the tools and the EVM concepts required to succeed; not only with the project at hand, but with future projects as well.
Our commitment to this essential knowledge transfer is founded in decades of experience. With tight deadlines looming, it can be tempting to overlook the short and long term value of solid, fundamental team understanding. We know better.
Tools to boost your success
We have developed a raft of Deltek training courses, plus coaching and mentoring tools to help disseminate all the pertinent information your team members need in order to win. This includes:
- Process training
- Control Account Manager (CAM) training
- Integrated Master Scheduler training
- Application training
- General Earned Value Management training
- Scheduling best practices training
- Informal workshops for planning and estimating
- Variance report coaching
- IBR preparation and mentoring.
We’ll give you access to what you need, and wait in the wings to be called on – just in case your team needs a helping hand.
Our goal is to set you up to become self-sufficient, and ditch the reliance on consultants to get you through every contract. Use us for specific tasks like project scheduling, for filling staff gaps, or not at all.
Building confidence and ability
Our tried-and-tested approach to ongoing coaching and mentoring has elevated many teams’ knowledge and expertise throughout their implementation – and we can do the same for you.
We will teach your EVM system administrators, financial teams, CAMs, schedulers and earned value analysts everything they need to know to run the new system and how to bring new projects online going forward.
When you invest in this type of highly collaborative partnering, your organization will enjoy years of value in both team strength and project performance measurement.
