Our client was an offshore drilling contractor who was having serious problems with their oil rig upgrade and repair projects. Every project ran late and the costs were enormous. They sought significant improvements and partnered with RLG over 4 years to turn this around.
- The implementation began with RLG and the client co-implementing a stage gate planning process
- Over 6-months the process and supporting documents were developed per the RLG Project Excellence™ approach
- Improvements were obvious in the very first project when it was delivered earlier than plan
- Coaching continued, and over the next 3 years the schedule variance dropped by 96%
- The impact on revenue was more than $1 billion
