Creating Project Management Offices
Project Management Office (PMO) development, focused on creating consistency in project practices, and through cultural sensitivity develop self-sustainable, competent people and mature project management organizations. We typically structure the PMO as a group within the Client’s business and develop the Methodology, Governance, Standards and Tools required to meet the Client’s specific corporate requirements, and ensure that the people who will operate it are highly competent and skillful. This service includes a Project Management Competency Management System that assesses people skills, a Project Management Maturity System that identifies the current state of maturity, development of a road-map that addresses the steps to the desired Project Management maturity, and implementation of these steps. By using our coaching and mentoring approach, we create Project Management cultures, through instilling ownership within the organization and developing stakeholder buy-in and support.
Supporting Clients in the Execution of their Projects
We provide project team resources, as required, and ensure successful execution through coaching and mentoring at all levels of the Client’s project management organization, from the executive level cascading down to the working level. Projects are resourced with our highly expert coaches and consultants, who drive project targets whilst developing the client staff in all aspects of project management.
Develop Successful Project Plans
Project Management Institute (PMI) studies have been indicating that optimized planning consistently leads to successful project implementation. Conversely, poorly planned projects always produce poor results.
We assist our clients to frame, define their projects, develop the conceptual planning and create a fit-for-purpose Project Execution Plan (PEP), prior to the project funding approval. The Project Execution Plan defines how the project will be managed during execution and incorporates all the strategies, procedures and tools that will be required to plan and execute the project. Some of the typical components of the PEP are project risk management, stakeholder and communication management, cost, scheduling and performance management, contracting and procurement management, etc.
