A Program Manager needs both a high-level view of strategy and a hands-on understanding of tactics. To fulfill this role, we recruit consultants with Fortune 500 experience. They have the finest credentials, and appropriate certifications, and as with all Chivalry consultants, they have been referred by people we trust.
A Program Manager is the primary point-of-contact throughout the lifecycle of a project. From start to finish, our Program Managers ensure a common and collaborative vision within the project teams. They also keep the scope of the project under control, ensuring that the project moves in the correct direction, satisfying the needs of the client.

Whether the segment is IT, business solutions, or training, each manager must be successful at controlling budget, timeline, and deliverables for each stage of a project.
Project Managers are integral to the team, and not only manage their work, but provide leadership and management for a team of professionals. The difference between a great Project Manager and an adequate Project Manager is infinite.

From the big-picture vision to the fine-detailed execution, we assist corporations large and small to achieve their goals.
Although we began as an IT specialist, Chivalry maintains experts in many aspects of business, training, communication, and technology, and we’re able to work through all aspects of a program to get you up and running.
We follow the chivalric code: Your mission is our mission. Your goal is our goal. Our total focus is on getting you from here to there in the shortest, most efficient route possible.
Our consultants have deep experience working in fields affected by regulation, such as ISO, CAPA, Six Sigma, and other regulatory regimens. We may be knights in shining armor, but we’re also in regulatory compliance.
Whether you need a single expert of a total system review, Chivalry Consulting has the resources for the job. And because of our unique business methodology, we deliver better results for a lower cost. When you win, we win—it’s simple because it’s true.
We’re all learning, all the time. A new employee needs training. Taking a promotion usually means training, plus training the person who’s taking your old position. In an economy where we’re worth what we know, we’re all training on some level.
Chivalry’s training experts help this happen, provide your employees with systems for learning new processes, systems, or applied knowledge. Sometimes that’s a ten-minute online course, or a four-hour session with a facilitator, or a weeklong deep-dive skill building course. We do what works, and we do what’s appropriate. We also offer user guides and training materials for customized software and applications.
When does a company need change management? Usually when going through a transition such as Six Sigma, process reengineering, total quality management, organizational development, restructuring, continuous process improvement, or a company-wide platform update. Change management can ease implementation, and encourage early usage, if applied properly.
Change management uses communication the way a car uses gasoline. In other words, communication is the thing that makes it move. Change management means developing a plan to communicate initatives at the right time; employees need to know what is coming, how and when it’s coming, and what to do to manage the transition.
Depending on the business situation, our change management can use soft or hard delivery through custom and familiar tools.
Chivalry started as an IT firm, creating enterprise deployments for Fortune 500 clients. This is our heritage, and it shows. We aid our clients in forming the right technology strategy, navigating regulatory requirements, and then we develop proprietary or off-the-shelf solutions as appropriate for each situation.
We may be consultants, but in our hearts we’re nerds. That’s not a bad thing.
