NSD believes that project success begins with strong project management, the core tenets of which are communication, coordination, and the management of resources.  We have extensive experience in the management of large to small-scale projects, all of which require maintaining close communication with our clients. Principals Leif Embertson, PE and John Soden, PWS have completed the Project Management Academy Training and have incorporated the Project Management Professional tools into our management strategy. For complex projects that include multiple project partners and community stakeholders we’ll typically prepare a project management plan, risk register, and schedule to ensure that all stakeholders have equal expectations. For smaller or less complex projects we will still prepare a detailed scope of work and schedule, and our project managers have all completed training and use sophisticated project management software to track progress and track and deliver data.
