Large-Scale Program Management

Large-Scale Program Management

The history of government programs that are off-schedule, over-cost and under-performing is legendary.  From shipbuilding to large-scale information networks, to embassy construction and weapons systems, the problems are frequent, major, costly, predictable — and preventable!  DEFCON® has the experience and track record to help government design and manage large, complex programs. 

Failure to create proper program architectures, inadequate planning and the lack of effective program management contribute to the “horror” stories we read every day.  Use of Large-Scale Integrators creates another common problem.  By effectively outsourcing both design and construction to the same firm, the vendor is ultimately responsible for justifying its own performance.  Independent, specialized expertise is needed on the government’s side of the table throughout the process. Our team has worked with dozens of projects over several decades, from positions in both industry and government. DEFCON® will ensure that your Program Office meets its goals!
