One of our Practice Leaders, Gary Harvey, presented to corporate business leaders and industry experts various best practices for improving their chances of winning contracts and getting projects off on the right foot. Gary provided strategies for using Earned Value Management planning methods and Deltek tools to streamline the proposal development and contract negotiation processes, resulting in valuable savings of upfront time and financial investment during the sales cycle.
Gary covered some of the Deltek tools used by organizations to aid in realizing these business benefits such as: Cobra, MPM, Open Plan, PM Compass and wInsight. Gary used Microsoft Project integrated with Deltek Cobra for this session. In addition to MS Project, Pinnacle and Gary have also used Primavera P6 integrated with Cobra for proposal development and transition to EVM operations.
Pinnacle is extremely proud to be invited to speak and share our expertise at several industry conferences each year.
