About the Company 

EVMT ProgRess Limited provides professional programme, project and change management advice to a wide-range of major infrastructure projects with particular emphasis upon construction, IT Business Systems implementation and complex Systems Integration. 

EVMT ProgRess Limited is a clever name as it has several key elements that Programme/Project management professionals and companies who use PMs would/should recognise. 

EVMT stands for Earned Value Management Team – EV is a key project analysis function and core to what we do. The graph on the advert and my business cards reflects this EV approach. Prog part of ProgRess refers to programme and Ress for the resource management that is another key function.
