OUR MANAGEMENT CONSULTING SOLUTIONS

Whether you’re managing a particular project or a broad portfolio of activities, we have an enterprise understanding and decades of experience to help you optimize results.

When standing up or helping improve a PMO, Edwards draws on our proprietary playbook, “the Edwards Management System” (EMS). This framework is filled with templates and resources that can easily be customized to meet a wide range of client needs and ensures that we consistently provide the highest quality PMO support.

We begin each engagement by establishing project complexity using our proprietary Enterprise Complexity Matrix (ECM). Next, we create a project management plan (PMP), which identifies how Edwards will implement and/or deploy a suite of tools, technologies, metrics, and reporting in conjunction with existing enterprise measures, tools, and processes.

Using our Edwards Management System (EMS) framework, which aligns with both CMMI Level 3 for Services and ISO 9001:2015, we help clients mature their PMOs and associated governance programs while improving their use of PMO best practices. Our clients consistently experience increased PMO buy-in and effectiveness across their organization.

Edwards will enable Maryland’s Agile transformation through a combination of our staff, our tools, and proactive knowledge transfer and training. Our staff are highly certified in Agile methodologies, and we also have a proprietary software framework, ECHO, that provides simultaneous program reporting support for Agile, waterfall, and hybrid projects. Our approach also includes mentoring and training to help project teams understand the benefits of Agile—getting them excited about embracing new methods in a way that empowers their performance as opposed to mindless compliance.

OUR CYBERSECURITY SERVICES

Edwards is committed to ensuring Maryland state departments and businesses understand and properly institute cybersecurity—protecting themselves, their constituents, and the infrastructure of our great state.

Compliance and risk assessments provide a baseline of your organization, information systems, and assets to identify organizational risks. Our standards-based assessments (HIPAA, NIST, CMMC, DFARS, etc.) uncover the gaps to help you understand your risk posture and management strategies – establishing a plan of action based on business needs. Risk Management as a Service (RMaaS) provides risk assessment, compliance assessment, and cybersecurity risk management services, tailored for your organizational needs, including

  • Continuous Security Risk Assessment Services (compliance oriented)
  • Continuous Vulnerability Analysis and Penetration Testing
  • Security Project Planning and Monitoring (Plan of Action and Milestone [POAM] Management)
  • Enterprise-Wide Security Program Maturity Assessment and Dashboard Management
  • Vendor Risk Management

Security Governance as a Service (SGaaS) is increasingly a go-to option to add value to the management, implementation, and oversight of cybersecurity complexities. Our in-house cyber team brings decades of security program, CISO, penetration testing, and assessment experience.

We utilize a “Governance” model to guide and manage the full cybersecurity picture, customizing it for your organization. We also provide reporting through dashboards, delivering strategic insight into the health and maturity of your program throughout its life cycle.

Edwards helps you build an outcomes-focused cybersecurity program – and then continues to support that program through management and governance. Our solution approaches security from every angle, addressing Risk, Compliance, Policy, Security Project, and Vulnerability Management.
