The cPrime Story
According to Inc 500, cPrime is ranked as one of the top 500 fastest growing companies in America, ranking 4th for fastest growing companies in Silicon Valley and 6th for the S.F. Bay Area.
cPrime was formed in 2003 by a small group of IT project managers in the Bay Area. All of us were driven by our shared passion for project management and what we felt was a lack of understanding in the IT field about what makes a great project manager. Before founding cPrime, we consistently came across project managers who lacked the education, experience or passion required to complete successful projects and move organizations forward. cPrime was thus founded with one goal: to give our clients the best possible project management services by utilizing our extensive experience managing critical projects and our knowledge of project management theory and practice.
In the past nine years, we have built a successful company on these principles, and have become a recognized leader in the field of IT Project Management. We’ve made it our mission to be our clients' partners and to develop the best project managers. We're here to help you, whether that means working together to develop a PMO, providing "the best of the best" project managers, or training your project managers to lead your organization to success.
cPrime's Guiding Principles
cPrime trains individuals and teams in Agile methodologies, and helps organizations adopt Agile ways of working throughout their enterprise. At cPrime, we also practice what we preach: We believe that in order to be a successful and thriving company, we all must embrace and exemplify Agile principles. We must all have the ability to adapt to our ever-changing world, not only in the way we do business, but also in the way we think, learn and lead as human beings.
We practice Agility by:
- Progressive Elaboration – the concept that our work evolves and develops over time and the more we look at it, question it, discuss it, the more clear and precise the right solution becomes. – No one ever gets it right the first time and it’s foolish to believe that.
- Regular Inspection – inspecting what we do and how we do it on frequent and consistent intervals. This leads to self-improvement and tangible action items (new things we can do better).
- Collaboration – Working together, discussing ideas, challenging view points, feeding off each other’s energy, ideas and strategy and pushing each other to come up with a better solution than one mind alone.
- Adaptation – At the core of Agile, is that we build a plan and we plan often, but we also plan to adapt. In studying successes and failures of companies throughout history, the #1 reason established companies failed is because they failed to adapt to the changing market/environment. We must have the ability to be open-minded and be ready to adapt our approach to our work. We cannot succumb to the familiar and comfortable ways of doing things and should always be looking for ways to improve.
