Consulting for Capital Project Delivery Improvement

Camargo Associates, LLC exists to improve the effectiveness in which project and / or program capital dollars are invested. Through in depth interview and analysis and / or using recommendations of benchmarking results, we drill into specific detail actions that are necessary to improve and maximize capital assets. We provide hands-on state-of-the-art processes and tools to discover and identify specific strategic and tactical plans to make capital investment dollars go farther. Once detailed recommendations are approved, we work with our clients to implement them into their organization so that they “stick”.

Formal benchmarking reviews have been undertaken by many of these same companies to provide valuable indicators of how they perform with respect to other "peer" competing companies in their business area. These efforts are extremely important as they provide comparisons along with generalized recommendations for improvement. Descriptors like, capital effectiveness, capital efficiency and predictability are all synonymous to define the performance characteristics in which they deliver projects.

Today many organizations routinely misuse up to 15 cents out of every one dollar in the project delivery arena, sometimes considerably more. Many companies today have capital spending plans nominally exceeding $1 billion annually. There is quite a bit at stake! As an aggregate, trillions are wasted and thrown away.

Through benchmarking analysis, provided by others, it is easy to determine that many dollars can and should be saved, significantly improving shareholder value and / or driving fiduciary responsibility to the public as a whole.
