How to Recession-Proof Your Organization – Do More With Less as an SOP


Hindsight is 20/20, as the saying goes, and we all learned a lot about the impact a recession can have on our organizations . . . especially when an economic downturn comes as a surprise. While we all certainly hope another Great Recession does not occur anytime soon, there are certain strategies that can be adopted now to stay ahead of any future crisis. And besides, these methods are just good business practices anyway!




Join Gary McTall, co-founder of GovSense and Paul Cammisa, CEO of InnoVergent for this webinar and Q&A session to learn how to implement efficiencies that remove “do more with less” from management’s vocabulary, including:


  • Take an unconventional approach to software selection that results in your ability to actually DO MORE WITH LESS.

  • Realistically define what is ENOUGH to still be considered successful.

  • MONITOR AND MEASURE to understand the baseline from which to determine success in terms of meeting customer expectations.

  • Use DISCIPLINED PROJECT MANAGEMENT to accurately calculate the true cost of project work.

  • Gain project consistency and efficiencies with TEMPLATING.


    Private Sector Participants: What successful trends has Paul & team (InnoVergent) seen successful in the A&E (architectural and engineering) and Construction Industries to ensure proper margins and profitability during a project lifecycle. Proper process through resource allocation and management for any consulting type agency ensure profitability, thus recession proofing your organization.


    Public Sector Participants: What modern trends are we beginning to see as a result of the 2008 recession. Understand that most community development fees are fixed, how can we ensure that we are properly monitoring & measuring level of effort vs. costs? With proper standard operating procedures, we can easily provide Senior leadership with the data points and Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) that help understand both “Whatif” scenarios and economic trends.
