6SigmaPM provides a suite of low-cost cloud apps that resolve the root causes of project failure. The reported failure rate of enterprise projects is as high as 85%. We diagnose the root causes of project failure then apply successful solutions from other industries. Our solutions include:
1) A project lessons learned app that measures project health within 1 hour and recommends project improvements. Project team members complete a self-service questionnaire. Then the app determines which typical failure modes are driving project success or failure. You then apply proactive corrective actions to ensure project success.
2) An interview app that generates skill-based questions and allows your interviewer to score responses from each interviewee. The app summarizes the score for each target skill for each interviewee. You can match interviewee skill profiles with actual job performance to improve hiring results.
3) Explainer videos that communicate the purpose and status of your projects. These are excellent for explaining technical projects to non-technical stakeholders and for ensuring stakeholder alignment.
4) JoinMyOrder® is a cloud app that enables like-minded customers to aggregate their knowledge and volume to optimize terms and conditions for their purchases and RFPs. JoinMyOrder® empowers you to negotiate purchases from a position of power.
