The ProChain System

The ProChain System, described in the book Islands of Stability, is a kind of organizational operating system—a combination of tools, processes, and culture that helps people get things done together. We have developed and refined our operating system for over twenty years with the aim of helping your people create more value, with less work. It has become the premier project management methodology in the world and includes best-in-class software, certification, and change management.

Tools & Training

ProChain’s Fusion Software delivers critical information through advanced intelligence and enterprise connectivity. Here are some of the pieces that make it work:

The ProChain System includes a certification process so that ProChain, and eventually your company, can create qualified internal experts who will ensure your long-term success. The ProChain System and software together form not just an enterprise information system, but enterprise operating system. It has produced billions of dollars in benefits across thousands of companies of all sizes.

Program Management

Large programs represent great risks and challenges, and even greater opportunities. Complex programs are difficult for even a highly experienced team to manage. ProChain’s program management components have been effectively applied on programs with hundreds of workers and dozens of subprojects, with excellent results. They extend the basic single-project toolset and methodology in several important ways:

  • The Fusion software supports the linking of tasks and projects across the most complex of programs.
  • Presentations and materials help structure the difficult process of creating a schedule architecture that matches the program’s needs.
  • Full integration into Fusion Online allows remote schedule status, analysis and updating for large programs across even the largest of organizations.

These tools, coupled with the knowledge and experience of ProChain’s senior consultants, can result in excellence in program planning and execution for your organization.


ProChain has spent twenty years developing its rigorous certification processes to ensure that you can create your own long-term implementation results. ProChain created its Expert and Professional certification programs to help companies develop and maintain their own capabilities in planning and executing the ProChain System. Certification candidates undergo a rigorous combination of classroom and hands-on training, on real projects, under the direct supervision of experienced ProChain consultants. Upon completion of the certification process, the candidates are capable of leading an internal ProChain implementation without additional outside assistance.

Change Management

Significant change initiatives are usually high risk. There are many ways they can run into trouble, including failure to involve senior management, poor communication, inadequate planning, improper implementation tools, and inability to make key course corrections. The ProChain System, based on the five-step “Agree, Align, Advance, Assess, Adapt” framework, helps ensure that all these areas are coordinated and monitored to give you the maximum chance of success. In fact, we’re so confident in our approach, we offer risk-free implementations. Contact us now to get started!
