How much? How long? What do I get?— Kenny & Company defines these as the three big questions C-level executives are concerned about while implementing any initiative using any methodology. While modern approaches of Product Teams and agile methodologies are attempting to provide answers to these questions, they can fall short without additional processes and data that provide a comprehensive view of the entire project. In many cases, project teams need to formalize additional project artifacts like project/product road mapping, and executive reporting that incorporates and translates agile project data into meaningful business metrics for CIOs and other executives. Addressing these challenges has enabled Kenny & Company to lead the way in modern project management practices.

Another challenge that Kenny & Company frequently solves for executives is to determine if projects can continue as is, need to pivot or should be terminated. By offering a transparent, content, and metrics-driven approach to project management, Kenny & Company enables clients to make informed decisions and focus on realizing a project’s business value. The company collaborates with leaders at all levels to determine what data is needed and how data is used for effective decision making. “We guide organizations and leaders through the evaluation process and help them to develop a fact-based and supported point of view on their portfolio and/or specific projects,” says Michael Kenny, Managing Partner of Kenny & Company.

Kenny & Company partners and co-creates with their clients to achieve project outcomes. “We provide a real partnership with our clients. We are not just ‘consultants’ who ‘advise’ but consultants who ‘do’ and our clients welcome us as part of their teams,” says Peter Daheb, Partner and COO of Kenny & Company. A typical Kenny & Company team of 2-5 people functions as part of the client team to co-lead projects. With collaboration and co-creation underpinning its strategy, Kenny & Company offers a truly compelling experience for clients, sourcing ideas and data from their team, clients, and even third parties to provide top notch experience, analysis, and facts and to provide real soAlutions to real problems. “We are always looking for the best ideas and solutions to address our client’s specific issues and implement them in a framework that delivers measurable outcomes,” adds Will Yen, Partner and CMO of the company. Importantly, client satisfaction is of utmost importance for Kenny & Company and it boasts of a notable track record of exceeding client expectations over its decade long history. This is also a reason the company has garnered a diverse portfolio of clients ranging from Fortune 100 to startup companies across high technology, financial services, consumer packaged goods, healthcare, and emerging industries.

In one instance, a Fortune 100 consumer goods company was seeking to successfully deploy a new pricing and promotion capabilities program. However, while moving to the final stages of implementation, the program was reporting status as red, and failing to meet its delivery and business value commitments. An assessment by Kenny & Company determined that this was due to ambiguity and lack of agreement on a successful implementation, challenging organizational environment with multiple participants and reports, dependencies on external teams for delivery of solution components, and misaligned expectations between business and technology stakeholders. Kenny & Company developed seven strategic and 22 tactical recommendations to improve program delivery and business value. As a result, the client was able to reset the program on a path towards a successful delivery and realization of benefits.
