STEM’s capabilities

STEM’s project management experts work closely with clients to tailor their approach based on individual organization needs. Strengths and opportunities are identified to accelerate high performance and ultimately achieve alignment across all functions.

STEM’s process:

  • Confidential interviews with head office, field managers and field-based teams to measure internal understanding of and alignment to strategy and expectations of the field teams.
  • Anonymous in-field observations of field teams to measure execution quality.
  • Presentation of the results following analysis by STEM’s in-house team, just 6-8 weeks after the first interviews take place. STEM will pinpoint 2-3 highly practical opportunities to accelerate performance.
  • Evidence-based recommendations are provided to clients and for the action plan and then implemented by the client’s internal team.
  • STEM returns in 6-12 months to measure progress made following the internal implementation of the action plan.
