Project management whte papers by Kepner-Tregoe offer perspectives on project management techniques, solutions for challenges encountered when managing projects, and project management organizations. With limited resources and growing numbers of initiatives and projects, most organizations struggle to keep up. KT project management consulting and training programs help organizations build project expertise and pursue projects successfully meeting goals, budgets and schedules. The KT project management white papers address the role of the project office in strategic project management and the value of building project management expertise at all levels of the organization.

The project management whitepapers draw on KT’s project management consulting and training expertise  that has helped clients manage projects  to achieve operational improvements, implement change or optimize project resources. The Kepner-Tregoe project management process is a structured approach based on four pillars - definition, planning, execution and communication - that link with the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Body of Knowledge. The project management whitepapers draw on KT’s experience working with clients to address the challenges of project portfolio management, install a project office, and build project performance in today’s matrixed work environments where almost all work is project work.
