  Over the years, the range of the services we offer has widened, as more and more exposure over the years led to more and more possibilities to integrate our abilities to offer a holistic service-set. The services we offer today enable our clients to seamlessly integrate one vision into technology, design, and language for enhanced business benefit.
Our core services can be classified under the following headings:

Project Consulting
At the end of the day, it is an accepted fact that project success is all about your project execution model and the overall efficiency of your setup. I have been fortunate to have worked with numerous organizations helping them fine-tune their project strategy and streamline their CQV phases, leading to better services and processes, leading, in turn, to enhanced client satisfaction and overall project delivery within scheduel and on cost.

As a Project consultant, I offer the following services geared to help you get the best out of your project setup:
  • ASTM E2500  Delivery Execution and Training.
  • Project CQV Strategy and Training delivery.
  • Operational and Process Flow Consulting.
  • Product / Service  Lifecycle Review.
  • QA & Regulatory Compliance.
  • CQV Project Management.
  • Cleanroom Qualification and EM Specialist.

Project Execution Strategy
An effective high-level project execution strategy has typically been seen to be the secret behind the success of most companies projects that have done well. Typically, every company has an avowed long-term vision, which is organized into smaller time-bound missions. Your project execution strategy is your company´s chosen path towards these missions, and are critical for their success.
Working closely with your core project management, I study, capture, and present your existing project execution strategy.
Post project execution strategy capture, I engage your management team in sessions dedicated to strategy and strategy implementation analysis. Typically, these sessions help you identify the gaps (if any) within your business strategy, and help your team arrive at a better understanding of the manner in which your core strategy has translated into processes and procedures on the work floor.
By the time existing core project strategies, processes, and procedures are captured, your core project management will be ready to engage in discussions leading to a reevaluation and enhancement of your business strategies. This will, in turn cascade as evolved processes and procedures within your organization. The net result of this exercise will be enhanced integration across the various teams within your organization and a greater clarity in terms of where your organization needs to go and what it needs to do to get there.
With enhanced processes and procedures captured and documented, your team will be in a position to chalk out steady plans for training and materials creation for identified departments within your organization.
As newer and newer technologies emerge, your organization will be ready to evolve to the next level of oualification efficiency and will be ready to handle emerging regulatory requirements very much by itself.

CQV Consulting

Over the past years, I have worked with numerous companies, helping them identify their people and  technology-process related requirements, offering guidance towards choosing the right people and proces to suit their current and future project requirements, and in creating and customizing solutions to suit their specific project needs.

Project Management
For reasons of both security and urgency, organizations are often wary of offloading complete application development or management tasks offsite.

Leveraging a combination of onsite and remote monitoring and systematized planning, i can help you reduce your application development / management costs by offering dependable project management services.
