Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Company
“BNW Manufacturing Associates engaged with King Systems this year to assist us in our rapid deployment of an enterprise wide Project Management system to manage our re- engineering projects. In five weeks Mr. Barth completely corrected our planning and execution approach of our re engineering projects and programs that we had put in place over the prior four month period.
Mr. Barth then went on to train and coach our project managers to become more effective in their roles and also begin the process of developing the beginnings of a strong Project Management Office. He could not have done this in such a short time if it had not been for his senior manufacturing and engineering experience combined with his subject matter expertise in project and program management using the latest web based technology.
The results of his efforts have made a big difference in King Systems getting back on track on many the large number of re engineering projects which are producing significant cost savings and revenue increases by providing much clearer visibility to the King Systems Executive sponsors to allow us to manage this strategic program more effectively.
