Focus : Bring Order to Chaos!

Good Objectives? YES. How? Through the use of good Project Management,

Processes, Techniques and Disciplines.

The Standish Group has been publishing their CHAOS Reports for decades reporting that on average 25% of all project fail and another 45% to 50% are listed as being challenging, in that they did not live up to expectations. This leaving between 30% and 25% that were successful. While as time, experience and environments have improved, there is still an incredible opportunity for continued improvement in the area of project management.
Dr. J.N. Kundaeli and the resources at Commonwealth TC Consulting Services will help turn that trend around for your business. Let us bring order to the theory that you might be facing chaos. Let us bring success to your projects and increase the percentages in the green segment. Let us reduce the challenged and eliminate the failures for your organization.

Commonwealth TC is a training and consultancy services provider that works with both the public and private sectors. The consulting services offered cover a broad range of areas including management and organizational development, finance, project management and evaluation, engineering, and technology. Since it was started in 2002, the firm has become the regional consultant of choice for projects which required international standards mixed with regional and bi-lingual expertise. When approached for a consulting project, Commonwealth TC works with the client to help identify the main pain points and then designs short and long term remedies and solutions to solve the identified issues using a systematic and creative approach. Commonwealth TC involvement varies with the nature of the situation and the request of the client. In particular, the assignment may range from ad hoc advice on a particular problem or issue, to the design of comprehensive systems as well as the evaluation and revision of existing ones.
After meeting with the client and agreeing on the scope of the project, a team of specialized consultants starts working with the client’s staff. Together they collect facts and data, which they analyze using the latest slice and dice techniques to identify practical solutions. After agreeing on the solutions, they train the client’s staff, assist in the implementation and help the client achieve the desired benefits.

Since its establishment, the firm has managed to build a network of researchers and a large number of enumerators and research assistants. This distributed team is supplemented by a longer list of registered researchers that among them have accumulated over 30 years of research work experience. Commonwealth TC prides itself in that it has access to part of Global Network of Companies in America (Development Alternatives Inc.), Brazil (DAI Brazil), and the United Kingdom (Bannock Consulting), providing it with information on best practices from projects in over 150 countries. It has access to professionals to work with who are world leaders in the development arena through its recruitment database which holds in excess of 26,000 professional CVs. We strive to deliver quality service and honest work as we believe that it is the fundamental element of good work. It is our goal to deliver quality service that speaks for itself.
