Certified Project Managers: The Project Management Institute (PMI) Project Management Professional (PMP) credential is recognized as the one of the top certifications for project managers. Our certified project managers form clear plans based on obtainable metrics and realistic goals to govern the operational aspects of a project, ensuring that process standards remain uniform throughout.

PMI certification guarantees:

  • Adherence to PMI’s Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct
  • Timely knowledge of compliance issues
  • Implementation of appropriate methodology

Communication between our support team and the federal program manager is an ongoing process, and consistent assessments and exchanges must be made throughout the project’s lifecycle. LCG’s project management professionals are experts when it comes to directing informational traffic, and they don’t stop at simply gathering information. They consider the recipient, the mode of communication and the relevancy of the data equally and coordinate all activity appropriately.

LCG PMPs:

  • Use program specific communication methods
  • Close the feedback loop by regularly surveying participants
  • Maintain project based viewpoints that foster programmatic success
