Project Consulting Group Wins 2010 Kinetic Process Innovation Award for Excellence in IT Consulting

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - February 16, 2010) -  Project Consulting Group, one of the nation's fastest growing companies providing innovative and comprehensive project and portfolio management services, announces today that it has been awarded the 2010 Kinetic Process Innovation Award for IT Consulting. Now in its 13th year, the Awards program recognizes excellence in information technology and is sponsored by High Tech Views, an online publication that spotlights technology innovation.

Project Consulting Group (PCG) has put forth a "shared-risk" approach for its project portfolio management that maximizes performance, quality and business growth. It gives companies the benefit of implementing a portfolio or project management strategy with limited risk and long-term gain. Industry studies show that Portfolio Management can result in a 14 percent or more cost saving on the annual budget by reducing management time spent on decision making, avoiding non-strategic projects, reducing budget overruns, and lowering labor expense with improved staffing. 

"Real leaders recognize the advantage of preparing for a future economic upturn by streamlining IT strategies now to lay the foundation for competitive agility as the economy rebounds," says PCG Founder and Co-Chairman Jamie Fragola. "It is possible now, with creative approaches to shared risk and investment, to embark on a PPM strategy with a trusted partner that will achieve optimal delivery of IT solutions. This enables companies to react quickly to rapidly changing competitive environments. And, at the same time, positions IT as an agent for positive change and not simply a cost center."

"The Kinetic Process Innovation Awards recognize outstanding technology and out-of-the-box thinking," said Drew Barrows, deputy editor of High Tech Views. "Project Consulting Group has an approach that truly underscores what's meant by a partnership between vendor and customer. They've developed a creative way to leverage opportunities during this economic downturn that are positioning its customers to be in the competitive forefront as the economic recovery progresses."
