We believe organizations receive large productivity gains when they manage initiatives using our Lights Out Program Management® techniques. We define our Lights Out Program Management® techniques as fully automating the program administration processes without any local human presence.
Our techniques help clients enable this capability through automated workflow, templates, artificial intelligence, simulation, business intelligence tools and services. Organizations benefit from our Lights Out Program Management® techniques by enabling program leadership to focus on higher level program needs and not program administration activities.
Business Development / Procurement program support

Turning around troubled projects
On occasion, organizations have initiatives and projects that are in a painful state. For example, over budget, excessive delays, dysfunctional teams, etc. Hendon Group’s Turning around troubled projects offering works with organizational leadership to identify the key issues driving the trouble project situation and take corrective action to address.
Earned Value Management (EVM)
Earned Value Management (EVM) provides program leadership information to quickly assess the health of a program’s development, roll-out, or both. EVM can help answer questions like: Is the initiative over budget? When will the initiative be completed? What is the expected program cost when the work is completed?
Risk Management Simulation
Identifying and understanding where risk points are within a key initiative’s program schedule is a critical activity in order to drive on time program delivery. Identifying schedule integration points and potential bottlenecks early minimizes the risk of a stall in the program schedule. Program schedule stalls can be very expensive…resource cost being charged, however no productive work is taking place. Avoiding these non productive charges allows the program leadership to have more funds available at the end of the program to allocate on other key initiatives, community give-back, profit, or program team bonuses.
