MANAGING TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP
Program management ensures individual projects are aligned with overall business strategies and delivered on-time and on-budget. We use a model-based Agile methodology to hit time-to-market goals without compromising long-term total cost of ownership (TCO).
Eastern Wind’s PMO services are offered as an integral component of an end-to-end solution or as a standalone service to ensure a successful outcome for internal or outsourced project teams. Our program managers have years of experience working with Fortune 500 companies managing programs from $1M to $100M USD.

You can be confident that only the most qualified vendors are objectively selected and that contracts are awarded based on a transparent process.
