X-PM has developed a 3-step process for successful program management:

1/ Assess
During the initial phase, we assess the challenges, risks and priorities at hand. An action plan and project governance scheme will also be established at this stage.

2/ Implement
During the execution phase, the interim executive will manage implementation of the different stages of the project, manage stakeholder expectations, and ensure timely communications and reporting, supported by an X-PM Partner.

3/ Withdraw
This phase involves the transfer of responsibility for the work undertaken to in-house team to ensure the sustainability of results achieved. This phase can begin at an early stage of the assignment.

In short:

  • Galvanise teams as fast as possible
  • Anticipate and address any external uncertainties while constantly evaluating and reframing the priorities
  • Ensure all actions are sustainable in the long term
