WORKING REMOTELY

Increase Productivity While Working Remotely

As consultants, we are very accustomed to working remotely to support our clients. COVID-19 and shelter in place orders are solidifying the reality that working remotely is the new normal for many of us, but this doesn’t have to affect your productivity. Our teams are engaged and projects are running smoothly. Often it only requires slight modifications in the use of systems that are already in place. Interested in learning more about working remotely with success?

SEE WHY OUR PROCESS WORKS

    Manager of Business Systems, EPRI

  • Motive Power provided consultation as well as hands-on support, and their expertise was greatly beneficial as they brought best practices from the industry, and the ability to integrate the methodology into something that made sense and upon which we can build the next set of improvements.

    PDP/PMO Director, Medtronic CardioVascular

  • Motive Power assisted us in a management and governance reorganization and in standing up and building out a brand new health plan subsidiary for Sutter Health. Motive Power engaged closely with our steering committees and initiative management to put in place overall program management infrastructure and team to manage Sutter Health resources, as well as our partner consultant vendors. Motive Power enabled our executive management, myself included, to effectively make decisions on real information and lead our initiatives to meet their timelines and achieve their objectives within 18 months in our key regions.

  • Partnering with Motive Power has helped Seattle City Light achieve significant milestones for the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) program. The Motive Power team played a substantial role in developing critical business processes essential for the AMI and Technical Metering Operations successful implementation of this new technology. Their impressive work included delivering critical change management processes such as process design and integration, tracking and monitoring progress, and developing and delivering a comprehensive training program for the organization.
