Project Execution Planning

APS combines a highly effective and efficient approach to project execution planning through our world-class expertise in risk identification and management. The result is a Project Execution Plan (PEP) that keeps a firm grip on project execution risk. PEP engagements range from simple reviews and updates of existing PEPs to full scale PEP development, including individual working sessions with functional area leads, that can move the process from start to completion in as little as one week.

APS has a unique understanding of the importance of effective project execution planning. We have conducted extensive research in project performance, identifying project execution planning as the key driver in Front-End Loading. In addition, APS leveraged this experience to help a Fortune 50 company develop its upgraded PEP process.

The APS approach delivers:

  • Functional Area Identification – Identification of the specific functional areas that are critical to each project phase.
  • Plan Development – A high-level execution plan for each of the functional areas with key deliverables and activities to support completing the deliverables identified.
  • Plan Alignment – Alignment of the execution plans and the project team members across all functional areas in a facilitated setting.
  • Fully Integrated Project Execution Planning – Consolidation of the execution plan for the various functional areas into a fully integrated phase-specific PEP document.
  • Path Forward – A way forward for managing the development of the deliverables.
