Large and complex programs require Governance methods and tools that achieve repeatability and predictability. Hawkins Point has deep expertise at defining and implementing processes that leverage our deep knowledge of industry best practices, but we implement them in a common-sense manner based on the unique environment. We ensure communications are clear and relevant, change is controlled, issues and risks are managed, and quality is assured.
Hawkins Point Program/Project Managers average fifteen to twenty-five years of industry experience and skillfully blend the art and science of leading complex projects and programs. We manage budgets, timelines, and plans, but our real value add in is how we communicate, instill confidence, and work with all stakeholders.
Establishing a Requirements Engineering lifecycle defines the discipline of elicitation, analysis, documentation, and management of requirements. Standards, methods, and tools support consistency and accuracy. Solid requirements engineering provides an unambiguous and comprehensive definition of all features of requirements and clearly delineates roles and responsibilities for all project contributors. The institutionalization of standard practices across the organization will result in higher value solutions, decreased implementation costs, and improved project health throughout the delivery life cycle.

Organizational Change Management for Implementations (OCMI)
We plan and lead the implementation of technology solutions. This expertise includes OCMI, a repeatable business capability that addresses the “people” side of change. We help our clients prepare the workforce and the organization to embrace and adopt new technology solutions.
We assess and facilitate organizational readiness and capacity for change. We achieve a full understanding of impact of planned changes and then engage the stakeholder community to prepare them. We ensure changes are implemented and supported to minimize dips in productivity. Ultimately, we prepare the organization, the workforce, and customers for pending changes.
