Project Management Consulting Services

We deliver Project Management consulting services assisting organizations in bridging the gap between organizational strategic intent and project management goals, also known as “strategic project management”. Our goal is to empower you to make important strategic and operational decisions quickly and translate those decisions into actions.

Chief among our Project Management consulting services is Execution. Execution is the result of thousands of decisions made every day by employees acting according to the information they have and within their own self-interest.  More precisely, successful project execution results from activities that are well planned, communicated, aligned from top-to-bottom, monitored, controlled, managed and rewarded.  Hence strategic execution greatly benefits from effective and efficient project management approaches and disciplines.

How our project management consulting services improve strategic execution

  1. Portfolio Management

    1. Organizes executive-level strategic direction into portfolios of project-based work; each prioritized, sequenced and resourced appropriately

  2. Governance and Oversight

    1. Provides a methodology for tracking actual vs. estimated work effort, delivery of anticipated outcomes, budgetary and performance metrics, benefit realization and milestone-based funding gates

  3. Project Management

    1. Recognized standard methodology and approach to organizing, planning, monitoring and controlling task-based work designed to deliver a specific outcome

  4. Resource Management

    1. Track and report on organizational resources allocated to the strategic plan

  5. Communications Management

    1. Information collection, formatting and dissemination from a “single source of truth”

Turning strategies into reality requires constant investment into management resources. Project managers must be nimble in their ability to adjust course as facts, results and markets change dictate.

 

Additionally, appropriate mitigation plans to known, expected, and even unexpected issues and risks will help to smooth out impacts that change, both good and bad, anything to the life cycle of the project.

Managers and employees at every level need to adapt to facts on the ground, surmount unexpected obstacles, and take advantage of fleeting opportunities. Strategy execution consists of seizing opportunities that support the strategy while coordinating with other parts of the organization on an ongoing basis. When managers come up with creative solutions to unforeseen problems or run with unexpected opportunities they are demonstrating execution at its best.

Our training services will enable you to quickly take advantage of the many benefits of our project management expertise. We can customize any framework based on your specific requirements. We understand that organizations have unique needs, driven by internal objectives and standards; we offer our services to customize the training, from the development of the course content, course manual and course presentations.  Each course is developed through an intimate process where we work together with our clientele to understand their exact objectives, and design a customized syllabus to obtain the desired outcomes. Every course is tailor-made to cover project management methodology, skill sets, and tools that can be immediately applicable to the field. All this material will be available to the course participants in printed and electronic format.

Project Management consulting services include training solutions tailored specifically for your needs.

Client On-Site Delivery

All of our courses are available for on-site delivery at your organization. On-site delivery allows your staff to maximize their training time by eliminating travel to an outside facility. Additionally, attending a course exclusively for your employees allows for targeted discussions where professionals can apply course content to your organization. Some courses may require people to have individual computers with Internet access. . Please contact us for more information and to schedule your course.

A Blended Approach to Learning

We give organizations the ability to “target the learning” for faster, more effective results. We can reflect your organization’s current skills, processes and methodologies so participants walk away with training they can truly apply back on-the-job. Your staff gains only the knowledge they need – how they need it.

Many of our courses feature action learning; a well-tried method of accelerating learning where the experience is structured around actual work situations that participants must complete and apply in their jobs. Our facilitator presents the techniques and skills needed, the participants discuss the alternatives and come up with a solution they will monitor and measure to track progress and success throughout the project. The facilitator teaches them the skills “just-in-time,” and in the context of the actual tasks they need to accomplish.

The best way to gain knowledge is to learn from the experts. Our instructors are experts in their field and know the realities of today’s development environment. Participants leave the classroom learning approaches they could only have acquired through years of experience.

And the learning doesn’t stop there. After completing a course with PMO Advisory we offer online mentoring. Participants have the opportunity to contact us with real world issues they are having trouble resolving, and one of our experienced instructors will help guide them through the resolution at no additional charge.

Project Management Consulting Services: Executive Coaching

In our Project Management Consulting Services we found that executive coaching should be considered as a component of major change programs, not only to ensure tactical wins for implementation, but also long-term adoptions of change, nurturing of top talent, and provide trusted advisors to business executives at all levels.  Our Executive Coaching targets and exposes blind spots and challenges people who are critical to your organization’s success, or will be in the future to achieve greater levels of success.   

Benefits of Executive Coaching

 

  • Better communication with team members

When executives understand how different personalities hear, respond, and act they become much more skilled in their communication. They can communicate well across cultural, age, and other lines to build consensus and motivate teams to succeed.

  • Increased confidence

Working with an executive coach can help you rebuild your confidence by evaluating your experiences in a more positive light,  and looking at past experiences as an opportunity to learn.  Self-confidence is at the heart of all executives’ performance and success, so improving confidence is a central feature of our approach to executive coaching.  In executive coaching the approach to building self confidence is always tailored to the needs of the individual client and their circumstances.

  • Better work-life balance

It’s  commonplace for many executives to also be  workaholics, where the eight hour workday is now more like a 10 or 12 hour workday. This means that you spend more of your life trapped inside an office with co-workers  than you do with your own family.   It’s great if you manage to find an executive job that becomes your passion and you absolutely love doing it.  But even then, you still need to have a healthy balance between work and your personal life – and we’ll get you there!

  • Quicker decision making

Making executive decisions requires making tough choices and executives must keep a strategic perspective.  The decision to lay people off, halt major projects, or to take your company global all come with a significant amount of risk—both business risk and professional risk. Executives must see further than others occupied in individual tasks and know how one decision will affect another and use this sense of foresight to inform all of their options. We help you find the data and tools to support your decision, make the call, communicate decisions effectively, and lead your organization through the change.

  • Better time-management

Time Management is a serious issue because today’s business environment is changing rapidly and fundamentally and requires the executive development skills to keep pace. Leaders face unprecedented domestic and global challenges from new technologies, global competition, increased market segmentation, specialization and massive industrial restructuring.  But true time management is not about time, it’s about clarity, clarity about priorities. Think of it as managing your mind. True time management requires more internal work—understanding how you think and why you think what you do.  It’s your belief about responsiveness (or client service or professionalism) that influences you more than the actual commitment on your calendar.  One key to executive effectiveness is being able to discern where you will invest your time.
