Whether you need training programs to self-implement or hands-on consulting to drive IMPACT in your organization through project management capability, we will help you Get. It. Done.

PMO Strategies helps business leaders transform accelerate the delivery of their organization’s strategy by turning your delivery team into hyper-focused IMPACT-driven engines to maximize return on investment for every project in the organization. Our goal is to ensure that PMO and other strategy delivery leaders and executives have the resources they need to create a sustainable PMO solution that becomes an integral part of organizational strategy realization.

Our approach is different from the typical “big consulting” cookie-cutter approach that costs a lot of money, takes a long time to implement, and often misses the mark on what matters most to that specific organization. Instead, we create a right-sized solution, leveraging our own best practices and training programs, to ensure that the journey continues long beyond the engagement, thereby creating a sustainable and manageable solution that business leaders support. You will find a right-sized solution for you whether it’s the self-service PMO Implementation program called the IMPACT Engine System or a more hands-on custom approach and everything in between here.

Need help building internal competency?

For those needing a more hands-on approach, PMO Strategies offers many levels of coaching, onsite training, and consulting for business leaders and PMOs responsible for creating effective and sustainable change, building a PMO, or implementing Project Management capability. We can also help you build your own internal staff competencies through talent development programs and talent leveraging where we teach your staff how to perform the roles necessary to help you build long-term sustainable capacity.

Our programs are right-sized to the organization and the need to build a perfect fit solution. This leaves you free to deliver the highest possible IMPACT even in organizations with very tight resource constraints (that’s our specialty).

Need immediate online PM and PMO solutions?

PMO Strategies offers a full suite of budget-friendly, actionable, training programs and membership plans to get your project started, further individual or team competency, improve leadership, build and run a PMO, or simply drive more IMPACT.
