Project Management Services
P&N brings a unique perspective to managing client projects by combining a deep understanding of business operations with powerful technical resources and a team of experienced project managers. Our project management approach begins with examining the underlying issues behind your need to make changes within your operations. Our project management team is dedicated to managing and leading your project to completion in the expected time frame and budget. We provide services ranging from full Project Management Office (PMO) duties to functional support in specific project management knowledge areas.
Our goal is to provide our clients with a top-quality, reliable project management resource that can expand and contract as your needs evolve.
Companies spend a lot of time, money and effort managing projects that end up failing 70% of the time. Because more than 90% of project failures are due to poor planning, utilizing the experience and tools of a project manager are critical to improving the likelihood of success of internal projects.
We also understand that companies’ needs for project managers evolve over time, making it a challenge for organizations to hire, retain, and efficiently use experienced project managers with appropriate and relevant skills sets. This is why our firm offers clients a full-service project management service line. It provides the flexibility to expand and contract team sizes based on current needs, as well as diversity in technical skills and industry knowledge.
Our vision is to be the leading professional services consulting firm in the gulf south for providing portfolio, program, and project management services and sourcing that adhere to the standards published by the Project Management Institute. Our firm is focused on staffing top talent as permanent employees who provide various levels of services to our clients based on responsibility level and experience.
From project initiation to planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing, P&N provides valuable project oversight and management for scope, time, and cost. We help ensure success of the project in the following major categories.

Because of our professionals' extensive experience managing projects of varying size and scope, we understand that the success of initiatives is highly dependent on the activities that take place before the project, as much as during and afterwards. You cannot afford to invest in a new project without taking the necessary steps to ensure that it is well thought-out, documented, and communicated. As part of the planning process, the following activities will occur, helping to ensure that the end result meets your expectations and your needs.
Mapping out all project deliverables and activities at the onset of the project
