ATLANTA, June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Companies participating in the 2014 Department of Energy Small Business Forum and Expo in Tampa, Florida, have a lot on their plates. For small firms working on DOE contracts, a good project management team and proven processes are often keys to success. PMAlliance, Inc., a project consultancy with deep experience in the energy industry, will be helping small businesses learn how to build strong teams and improve their project management expertise at this year's DOE event.
According to a study conducted by KPMG, organizations committed to using good project management practices enjoy a far higher success rate than those that do not. Effective risk management and the consistent application of suitable methodologies are just two of the factors research has identified as key in achieving repeatable project success. Unfortunately, project failures are rampant. Companies serving the energy industry in particular have reported extremely low success rates in delivering projects on time, on budget, and/or on scope.
"These statistics actually present a tremendous opportunity for small businesses eager to increase their presence in the energy sector," says Matthew Rodriguez, a CPF & PMP at PMAlliance, who will be present at the event. "Those organizations able to deploy high-performing project management teams with proven methodologies may find greater success in this growing marketplace."
Small businesses attending the 2014 DOE Expo will have a chance to not only learn about building successful project management teams, but also where existing best practices can be improved. They will be able to discover which risk management and project control methodologies are most effective on the types of projects they typically manage, and how their project teams can spot and address potential problems early in the process.
This year's Expo will be held at the Tampa Convention Center from June 10-12, 2014. Experts from PMAlliance will be available throughout the event at Booth 122.
