Enterprise PMO | Enterprise Program Management and Delivery

How do you climb Mount Everest? One step at a time. RAS works with teams to plan and prepare for an organization’s largest and most complex programs.

Successful execution of complex programs is not easy. Often the problems are not well understood, the next steps are unclear, and there is no initial momentum. RAS & Associates thrives on turning ambiguity into clarity. Our experience crosses multiple industries and includes regulatory compliance work for SOX, Dodd-Frank, ARRA HITECH legislation and internal business system audit compliance. We know how to secure and maintain the engagement of key resources and stakeholders, identify and mitigate risks, and develop communication and change management plans to ensure long-term success.
