NASA APPEL performance enhancement services increase a project's probability of success by delivering the right support to a project team at the right time. Through one-on-one assistance, focused workshops, or large-group sessions, project enhancement programs achieve immediate project goals, while enhancing long-term team capabilities.
Project performance enhancement begins with assessments and consultations to evaluate needs. Next, APPEL team members propose relevant developmental activities for choice by the project leadership. APPEL will either fund the activity if it is part of an established program or assist the team leadership to obtain separate funding.
Assessment and Development
Team managers improve project and executive team dynamics most effectively when they assess team and individual behavior. APPEL tools can measure behavioral effectiveness for teams and leaders, as well as team knowledge. Following assessment, intervention to meet team needs can include workshops, working with a coach and consultation with experienced practitioners, many of them retired NASA and aerospace industry project managers.
Project Cycle Life Support
APPEL meets the needs of NASA project teams by providing expertise to support any project competency. Services range from consultations on team building, planning and scheduling, program control analysis, systems integration support, risk management, and software management. NASA teams benefit from consultation with expert practitioners and subject-matter experts during every project phase from formulation through implementation and evaluation.
