Not tied to a specific platform

We are tool agnostic and will not try to sell you software. Our only allegiance is to the right solution for you.


Our unique methodology ensures success.

Motive Power employs our own methodology to execute our work producing transparency and open communication. With an identified methodology for all points in the contract lifecycle including pre- contract, contract execution and project closeout our work is meticulously executed. We treat each contract as individual projects complete with teams, monthly forecasting, month end meetings, and risk management. This methodology ensures continuous alignment around project scope, schedule, cost, and deliverables. Additionally, meetings between Motive Power and client create a regular forum to discuss performance against baselines and ensure client satisfaction.

At the heart of every successful project is change.

the change you experience achieves the outcome you intended.

Achieving superior results depends as much on the art of project management as on the science: It is the art that generates excitement, establishes the tempo, manages the rhythm, overcomes setbacks, encourages effort, and celebrates success.  Our PMI-certified consultants leverage master-level knowledge of toolsets, insightful metrics, and sophisticated reporting to demonstrate the science.  Explore these concrete examples of how we have helped our clients succeed.

Change Management

Medtronic OSC

Medtronic engaged Motive Power in the creation and implementation of a globally standardized clinical research study management process (SSMP) and harmonized standard operating procedures (SOP) following its acquisition of Covidien. Medtronic’s goal was to optimize operational efficiency and cost savings and to increase data quality across its global clinical research organization. Motive Power’s four-phase plan was built around involving Medtronic stakeholders from each organization throughout the entire program. All 18 organizations and more than 1,800 people were engaged globally in a comprehensive change management program.

Motive Power Milestones

Business Process Outsourcing


A major California utilities provider reached out to Motive Power to help them manage their $1B annual budget and project schedules effectively. The company reported inconsistencies and insufficient project detail in their schedules. Additionally, existing schedules were rarely updated by the project teams and as a result, insufficient detail did not allow the schedules to act as predictive tools and prevented proper management of engineering and construction activities.  Motive Power immediately went to work by assessing the current situation and establishing tools to align project forecasts, schedules and portfolio planning, while driving adoption.

Motive Power Client Focused

Hybrid Consulting / PMO


Too many projects and not enough people. Sound familiar? A California utility provider faced that very same problem on a very large scale as the demand of their capital project portfolio exceeded the supply of their internal resources. A signifi cant portion of projects required immediate project management to drive the execution of the project to completion in accordance with the Independent System Operator agreements. By enlisting Motive Power to manage a considerable portion of projects, our client benefited from our portfolio centric approach to project management.
