Critical Business Analysis (CBA): Creating and Delivering Resource-Optimized, Risk-Adjusted Enterpris

John Gordon, CEO
For numerous construction companies today, the challenge lies in finding the most powerful technologies for storing and managing their project-related data. Meanwhile, the solutions they provide must permit employees to work collaboratively and efficiently; not only with each-other, but also with customers while keeping document versions current. The method must be safe, yet instinctive and effortless enough to share and work crossways with the massive amount of devices present in a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) dominated workplace. Tackling this need is CBA, a company that provides and implements useful solutions for the construction industry. “We implement and customize various solutions to meet the needs of our customers. Our solutions remove borders that have prevented collaboration and sharing,” says John Gordon, CEO, CBA. The company also specializes in the application of project and program management software and the related information technology to enable effective use throughout the enterprise.

Established in 1984 CBA has dramatically altered itself from being a software company to service organization. Now, 90 percent of its business is in the service side and the implementation of project management software. “Our customers are in need of assistance executing projects on-time and on-budget, while delivering reports and metrics to owners and stakeholders. We supply the experience and expertise to make that happen. We work with everyone invested in project execution including the CIOs in the construction industry. Specifically, we provide consulting services and training, also project staffing for short-term and long-term needs,” states Gordon.

CBA has an exclusive construction and facilities management service which is a full service division, specializing in the design and application of program and project management systems for the construction industry. The service includes cost engineering, Primavera training and implementation, scheduling services, and contract staffing services. The company is a premier Primavera training-provider and has earned specialization in the full range of Oracle Primavera Project Management Software. Oracle Primavera P6, an integrated project portfolio management solution. Implemented and customized by CBA plays the role-specific functionality to satisfy each team member’s needs, responsibilities, and skills.
It provides a single solution for managing projects of any size, adapting to various levels of complexities within a project, and intelligently scaling to meet the needs of various roles, functions, or skill levels in an organization.

Apart from Primavera solutions and training, CBA integrates and implements Box for helping the construction industry manage and deliver documents via the cloud meeting the demand for accessing documents in an increasingly mobilized workplace. Box is a document management system that allows secure collaboration with all documents using mobile, tablet, and PC. For a thorough example Balfour Beatty Construction. Headquartered in Dallas, TX, needed a fast, easy, secure, scalable platform to share and collaborate on very large documents and files. The company replaced its antiquated, unreliable, bandwidth-limited FTP platform with Box, where today over 500 Balfour employees–and more than 3000 external collaborators–quickly and easily access, share, and manage important content for multiple construction projects. With Box, Balfour now has a large capacity, very scalable central storage repository for all its RFIs, meeting minutes, and progress photos, for both existing and new projects.


We are dedicated to providing clients in all industries with solutions that allow them to maximize their project and program management systems


Moving forward, CBA sees a lot of traction in leveraging social media for project collaboration and aims to make greater investments in the field. The company also wants to build relationships, educate people, and provide their customers with the state-of-the-art professional services in the project and program management field. “Our goal is to grow our business substantially over the next 5 to 10 years, and continue to build on our 30 year history as a leader in providing best of breed project management solutions and delivery of exemplary professional services to maximize project execution,” concludes Gordon.
