When it comes to capital projects, what does a culture of innovation look like?
What impact would this kind of culture have on our organizations, on our bottom line? How can we create an environment in which our teams have the knowledge, skills, tools, and data they need to innovate and execute with unrivaled efficiency? What will it take to get us there?
These are the questions that drive us here at Concord Project Technologies. We take a new and radically different approach to supporting our clients in their management system transformations. Here’s how.
Bespoke support for capital project management system transformation.
We have developed pioneering software, it’s true, but our most important innovation is not our technology — it’s our deep commitment to providing a tailor-made value proposition for management system renewal. That’s the Concord way.
We offer a robust suite of research, development and management systems implementation support services. Why? Because experience has taught us that R&D is the first step in helping organizations adopt the cutting-edge methods and technologies that will set them apart from their competition. In some cases, we combine our own R&D resources with those of our clients in an effort to better understand the market, the methodology and the implications for our technology. We help you lay the foundation for change.
Principle-driven development of the Advanced Work Packaging mindset.
Advanced Work Packaging is gaining momentum, and we work closely with our clients to help them adopt this revolutionary capital project methodology. It’s not enough to leverage leading-edge technology and analytics — we go further, helping organizations develop an innovative AWP mindset.
In practice, this means we’re deeply invested in refining the principle-based execution of the AWP approach. From established principles
like construction-driven project development to new and evolving principles like self-organizing execution, we’re thought leaders in capital project management innovation and we bring that cutting-edge expertise to your organization.
Ultimately, we aim to empower organizations by providing them with the knowledge and tools they need to innovate. We know we’ve done our job well when our clients start leveraging their teams’ capabilities, in-house knowledge and data to drive innovation independently from us.
Cultivating technological capacity through organizational maturity.
We offer all of these services as well as the opportunity to pilot our T-CON™ framework, a fully customizable, cloud-based, scalable platform that we purpose-built for capital project teams.
When you’re ready, we can help you build a technology ecosystem that is unique to your company, with the capacity to conduct highly tailored inquiries into your own data, work environment, and organizational capabilities. We give you the power to access these critical insights yourself, to drive meaningful change now and in the future, long after we’re gone.
We believe that one size never fits all.
The Concord team invests the time and effort required to create a unique value proposition that drives innovation and real progress for each individual client. Every intervention is unique because every organization is unique. Every step in a Concord collaboration provides you with the resources you need to mature, reach independence and develop a culture of innovation all your own.
