Wave 1 Project Management program transforms 75 store locations in 6 weeks.
JCPenney is converting Sephora branded retail spaces within their department stores into a JCPenney branded cosmetics retail space. Sevan provided Project Management resources to support, plan and execute the program rollout. The program consists of 591 store locations across 29 districts in the US, divided into eight waves of activity—averaging 75 stores each with no more than 6 stores impacted within a single district in any wave.
To complete this program, Sevan worked closely with JCPenney in a sequence of waves. Wave 1 was completed using a combination of Smartsheet and JCPenney’s Lucernex with continuous communication to review the scope, schedule and work with each General Contractor, General Manager and Design Manager—allowing the rollout of work with all stores to start and complete concurrently.
Sevan provided Program Management and leadership experience with well controlled and sequenced work by third party vendors across a large geography to conclude Wave 1 starting September 1 and completed by October 15. Sevan was engaged to manage a Store Refresh program for select stores with a greater scope of work.
