Public-sector programs large and small are susceptible to cost overruns. Herren is a catalyst, helping executives make the right decisions in the dynamic market. Our disciplined approach takes into account budgetary challenges, new technologies, and changing program requirements. Our long history of well-defined processes resulted in over one billion dollars of federal cost savings in the last five years alone.
Small cost differences can have a significant impact over the life of a program – contributing to cost overruns, benefit shortfalls, and schedule delays. Our data-driven framework helps organizations accurately evaluate risks, forecast costs, and quantify program benefits.

“The measure of success is not whether you have a tough problem to deal with, but whether it’s the same problem you had last year”

-John Foster Dulles, former Secretary of State
