At the core of every successful program are the behind the scenes program managers and practitioners tasked with project risk management — the people who ensure tasks stay on track, budgets are maintained, activities are efficient, and the program reaches its goals. Crisis1 provides effective program management support through five key activities:

  1. Governance: Defining roles and responsibilities, and providing oversight;
  2. Management: Planning and administering projects and the overall program;
  3. Financial Management: Implementation of specific fiscal practices and controls;
  4. Infrastructure: The program office, technology, and other factors in the work environment supporting the program effort; and
  5. Planning: The activities that take place at multiple levels, with different goals.

Within these five activities, we produce performance reports and project risk management reports, deliver workshops and seminars, and conduct data quality analysis. With our expertise in crisis and program management and communications, we also help agencies keep the program operating smoothly through all stages of program execution.

Many program management activities revolve around effective change within an organization or a process that cuts across many organizational units or business lines. While many of the same program management activities and infrastructure will be deployed, we recommend developing stand-alone Change Management Plans and Change Management Communications Models.

Crisis1 has decades of experience leading and supporting large and small programs. From private sector world-wide operational programs to research and development programs to financial system modernization programs to crisis management efforts we stand ready to serve your organization.
