About

ProChain Solutions Inc.

ProChain provides Software and Services that enable our customers to:

  • Dramatically increase project predictability while decreasing risk,

By introducing a systematic, organization-wide approach to planning and executing projects, you will experience:

  • Improved visibility on the status of critical initiatives;
  • Better organization-wide resource utilization;
  • Significantly better decision-making at both the project and the organization level; and, consequently,
  • Much better on-time delivery dates.

Our Philosophy

Value

If we can’t articulate where there is clear value, at least ten times the cost of our fees, we typically decline an engagement. We consistently work on implementations where the bottom-line return to our clients in real dollars is more than $100 returned for every $1 invested.

Solutions

We implement solutions that exactly meet your business objectives. We focus on ensuring there is alignment between your business needs and our skills, tools and methodology. If there is not alignment between your needs and our solutions, we all have better things to do.

Partnerships

We partner with our customers to tailor a solution that is process-based, and meets their specific needs. We understand that your problems may not be unique, but your situation almost certainly is.

Experience

We have been implementing innovative project management solutions for many years. During this process we have helped tens of thousands of people in hundreds of companies. We wrote the books on the practical application of the Critical Chain scheduling concepts: The Project ManifestoThe Billion Dollar Solution, Be Fast or Be Gone, and Project Management in the Fast Lane.

Processes

ProChain Solutions is about repeatable processes. From the first conversation we want to understand the real issues you need to address, discover where your leverage is and assess whether we can provide you with real value. Our implementation, quality and certification processes ensure high-quality, repeatable results.

Getting Started

There are several ways to get started. One is to send representatives to our Quick Start Program. That will enable you to try out the ProChain processes and software with no delay. A more comprehensive approach, typically used by companies that are larger and/or have large projects, is to work with ProChain on a pilot program. The pilot will demonstrate the type of business impact that ProChain’s project management solution can have within your organization and will help each of us to build a better understanding of how the other works. ProChain consultants facilitate and drive the project planning process during the piloting phase of the relationship.

A successful initial effort – where success is defined both in terms of results and learning– will often result in rolling out the solution across the organization. During the rollout phase, ProChain works with you to make sure that the positive early results become the standard way of doing business. There are several parts to the rollout process:

  • Up-front planning to develop understanding and set expectations
  • Quickly creating success in highly leveraged areas in order to build momentum
  • Training internal experts who can lead the process forward
  • Leading and transferring implementation governance in order to make sure the implementation goes smoothly and continues after we are gone

This approach allows our clients to take ownership of the project management processes, adapting and scaling the implementation as needed.
