OUR PROCESS SETS US APART

We achieve results.

Along with our human capital, Motive Power’s magic lies in the rigorous yet flexible process we employ, and the resulting best-in-class results we secure for our clients. We partner with our clients in three different ways to optimize our effectiveness and maximize their investment. Our team consistently provides quantifiable and progressive results by utilizing the principles of Motive Power sprocket model.

ORGANIZATION DEVELOPMENT & CHANGE MANAGEMENT

We first asses the current project or organizational situation, and then use that analysis to build a customized approach based on the stakeholder’s specific needs and environment that will enable desired development or facilitate necessary change smoothly. Our expertise is well suited to implement changes to major business processes and organization shifts while balancing the people side of transformation to ensure an end result that matches our clients' need and guarantees wide adoption and support.

BUSINESS PROCESS OUTSOURCING

The focus of the BPO approach is to fulfill a resource need and provide our clients with qualified resources to participate in project teams and management functions including scheduling, cost, risk, and performance analysis. We are uniquely qualified for BPO work because our consultants are cross-trained in all of the services we offer. This makes them comprehensive problem solvers who are able to identify—and implement—improvement opportunities.

HYBRID CONSULTING & PROJECT MANAGEMENT OFFICE

When we engage in a hybrid approach, Motive Power consultants are already on the ground executing business process outsourcing work, which creates synergy and flow to quickly identify efficiencies and areas of improvement. Our team assesses the systems and tools in use, actual project management practices, and the overall reporting infrastructure and process, in conjunction to tailoring tools and methodologies to improve our client's organizational health.

ONE SPROCKET TO RULE THEM ALL

Our unique approach is your secret weapon.

Our experience and success comes in many forms—from custom implementation of a world-class and industry standard scheduling software, developing necessary processes and procedures to increase an organization’s effectiveness, to facilitating work execution at all levels. Regardless of industry, Motive Power’s unique methodology enables us to build a customized approach for each of our clients to ensure the best possible outcome.
