EquiCharge™ Solutions can help your zero-emission vision and plans become a reality. We have completed over fifty (50) ZEV projects and can provide implementation support in a number of ways according to project size and requirements.
Every ZEV project will need management oversight to ensure it meets its objectives and within time, cost and quality success criteria set out by key stakeholders and sponsors. EquiCharge™ Solutions offers professional project management services catered to your needs.
Project Coordination (PC) Services - Part-time certified project manager (PM) will use abbreviated techniques based upon PMI's standards and practices. This is minimal oversight providing cost control, risk/issue/decision management and communications. The effort for a project coordinator is usually between 5 to 10% of the total work effort (based on all resources assigned to the project).
Project Management (PM) Services - Full-time (or part-time) certified project manager (PM) will use techniques that adhere to PMI's standards and practices. This will likely be required for most electrification initiatives, with the size and scope of the project dictating how much effort is required. Usually, the effort for a PM is between 15 to 25% of the total work effort of this type of project. However, more complex projects involving new technology introduction or R&D might be as high as 50% based on the work effort of all the resources assigned in a project.
Integrated Project Management (IPM) Services - Based on PM Services, an integrated approach is taken across a few co-dependent projects. For example, a transit depot retrofit project (design & build) will depend upon a utility services upgrade project where both are dependent on a facility assessment initiative. The PM will utilize integrated services to align goals and objectives, provide an integrated timeline and detailed project schedule, and manage risks, issues, decisions, procurement and vendors to assure time, cost and quality targets are met. This almost always requires one or more fully dedicated (100% allocated) PMs.
Program Office-based Project Management (PMO) Services - Based on several IPM packages being managed simultaneously to achieve a City-wide program delivery:
Organization Change management (OCM) prepares, supports, and helps individuals, teams, and organizations make an organizational change or introduce a major change to existing business processes, modes of operation that can significantly impact operations; for example, the introduction of zero-emission vehicles as part of your electrification plan.
EquiCharge™ Solutions provides change management based on Prosci ADKAR® Model, a results-oriented approach to managing change.
Prosci is based on the simple truth that organization-wide change happens one person at a time. EquiCharge provides Prosci-certified change managers on a part-time or full-time basis, depending on the size, scope and importance of meeting success criteria.
Significant change management is required for fleet electrification, especially in areas such as:
