What We Do
Flagstone’s program management approach includes several key actions to ensure your program’s success:
#1. Establishing the “Why”
Key to your program’s success is clearly understanding and defining its true objectives and to tie those objectives to the strategic direction of your agency and your leadership. Establishing clear and tangible program objectives in terms of the purpose for the effort and the achievable benefit provides the framework for all the effort to follow. The Flagstone team is experienced in helping structure the “why” for your program and identify the real benefits that will justify the costs and benefits.
#2. Defining the Program Structure
Each program, especially in Federal agencies, has numerous constituent components necessary for success. Early determination of the necessary people, the dependent technology, the interaction of the different operations and systems, as well as the constraints of Federal oversight and policy controls are all important to the success of your program. The Flagstone team brings a broad spectrum of skills and experiences to partner with you in defining the breadth and scope of what is required for an achievable and positive program outcome.
#3. Defining Measurements for Success
Articulating how to measure progress and the ultimate program success depends on establishing the key indicators and milestones to meet your objective. The Flagstone team will work with your subject matter experts to establish the project plans, methods to track and measure progress and define the short- and long-term success factors that are realistic and clearly defined.
Your program’s success depends on your ability to clearly articulate the progress and results of the money and time invested in it. Equally important is properly defining the challenges being faced and recommending solutions so the appropriate steps can be taken to overcome obstacles to program advancement. The Flagstone team is familiar with developing and presenting clear and concise communications for your management, key stakeholders, partner activities, and your constituent populations.
