Smart Projex grew out of the idea that businesses need a better way to manage projects.
Enormous sums are wasted on efforts that don’t add value to the organization.
Projects with little vision or that don’t align with strategy....
Scope creep, often caused by smart people coming up with great ideas, day after day….
Contracted workers running projects into the red before anyone knows….
Non-profits trying to tackle monumental challenges with great teams who just don’t quite know what they are doing….
Startups working tirelessly, and often going down rabbit holes….
Our founder, Suzanne Davenport, has worked for years with teams that were trying to accomplish something complex, urgent, and important. She has been completely frustrated by the inefficiencies of traditional approaches, and the global loss of resources as a result of this waste. Her breakthrough software is still in its infancy. Her small team is working on a mission to reinvent project management for the 21st century team of knowledge workers.
According to the 2016 Pulse of the Profession Report issued by the Project Management Institute, "organizations waste US $122 million for every US $1 billion invested due to poor project performance — a 12 percent increase over last year."  That’s trillions of dollars that could be used to feed the hungry, house the homeless, treat the sick, and build a more peaceful world.
The opportunity to reduce this enormous global waste motivates Suzanne despite the monumental challenges of building and marketing software in a crowded market. Are you interested in helping with this mission?
