Spear has found that the key to effective management control lies in the fundamentals on which the processes are based. Spear has developed what is considered to be the essential elements of effective management control processes. These elements include scope definition; organization participation and buy-in; approved baselines for cost and schedule; established performance measurement; and timely and meaningful reporting. In all of these elements, Spear emphasizes the importance of easily understandable and workable methodology, procedures, and support systems. If followed and adhered to, the resulting processes will result in successfully managed programs and projects.

The Spear Group and Strategic Estimating Systems combine their strengths and form a joint venture (JV) to create added value throughout the entire project lifecycle. From concept to construction execution, the JV will support process manufacturers in various hydrocarbon based industrial segments as well as pharmaceuticals, power, and utilities. The goal is to assist owner-operators in effective decision making and achieving successful project outcomes through sensible economic evaluation workflows and outstanding project management skill sets and resources.
