Delivery Executive, AVP
If you are looking for a consulting firm that specializes in Program/Project Management that specializes in health insurance, you should definitely hire E.H. Hudson Consulting. As an executive who managed portfolio delivery, I knew everything I needed to know to deliver IT products and services. Unfortunately I was not strong in Portfolio/Program Management.
I sought the help of Xavier Billingsley. She immediately stepped in, assessed what I needed and set up training sessions to coach and trained me in the areas of risk management, forecasting and stakeholder engagement. With her training I was able to save the company over $5M in savings!
Xavier specializes in taking the time to consult with her customers to truly understand what services are needed. She has a special gift of knowing what the customer needs to be successful in project delivery. She has spent years training project and program managers to proactively mitigate risks, accelerate speed to market delivery while coaching and mentoring Program/Project Managers to treat the company they represent like their own business.
I would highly recommend Xavier Billingsley and her firm for your program/project needs!
Sr. Project Manager
Xavier thanks for being so instrumental in my experience with project management. Your patience, knowledge and experience is truly unmatched! You take great pride in your work and it is clearly demonstrated through your mentoring, delivery of presentations, and communication. Thank you for coaching me through difficult projects!
Sr. Project Manager
Bringing in XB to help calm the “program on fire” was an extreme commemoration! As the third assigned Senior PM accountable for this $15M system overhaul with new processes, cost overruns, inadequate project controls, and no governance oversight, XB came in and established an active governance body while coaching me to lead in a highly visible and politically charged environment.
Within 2 months, we were able to control the budget spend within 3% of budget allocation, build an effective governing body, establish and align the right focus around our marketing engine to meet the customer need!
