Program Overview – Project Management for Better Organizational Management
Operational excellence, cost efficiency, strategic planning… all common buzzwords and themes employees tend to hear every day at work from their management and leaders. But employees also tend to hear all their organizational complaints on a daily basis too... poor communication, bad data, management doesn’t understand or know how things really work, etc… Unfortunately the disconnect between the themes is often rooted in organizational inefficiency that results when integrated processes aren’t well aligned among different functions, data that doesn’t get checked for validity and consistency which is used to make informed decisions, and lack of clear roles and responsibilities that make it easy to point fingers. These are the same issues that usually plaque projects that tend or overrun cost and schedule goals, or not achieve their key milestones. Even though project scheduling, integration and cost control is often thought of to describe projects, the discipline behind these activities can be applied much more broadly to help organizations better succeed and operate more efficiently.
Ms. Maul has built a tenured program and project management career through successful senior level involvement with Project Integration and Control, Business, Operations and Contract Management. Her career encompasses more than twenty-five years of progressive experience managing development, justification and execution of annual budgets in excess of $100 million, as well as life-cycle projects that exceed $1 billion to support major construction, engineering, decommissioning, manufacturing and IT projects in the environmental management, aerospace and defense industries.
Lisa has substantial experience with the federal budget, contract acquisition and project management processes as both a federal employee for the Department of Energy and commercial employee for Westinghouse, Los Alamos Technical Associates, URS (now AECOM), and Moog. She is currently the Owner and Principal of a program and project management consultancy named Alethian Strategies that helps clients improve their company’s performance by implementing well developed projects, or solving problems and developing viable solutions informed through critical analysis of current operations and evaluation of integrated processes.
When not busy evaluating spreadsheets, developing project plans or reviewing validity of critical path schedules, Lisa enjoys spending time with her family, walking her dogs, traveling, and photography.
