On Time & Under Budget Delivery Takes a Hit - Deltek Clarity Study Serves Up Project & Risk Management Trends to Watch
Project delivery and effective risk management were showing signs of setback even before the onset of COVID-19.

The 11th Annual Deltek Clarity Government Contracting Industry Study captures the challenges at hand for many project and risk management leaders and where they plan to make investments to keep current and future work on track.
Evaluating the capacity of internal systems generally isn’t the number one to-do item for government contractors while managing a period of dynamic growth. Often times it’s not number two or even number 10. However, if a firm is relying on generic, mass-market solutions, such as QuickBooks®, for accounting and overall business management, as workloads increase, likely so do the problems. The time to pop the hood and review how a solution is truly performing is now before the first “check engine” light comes on.
