I went out on a limb, and I signed up for the IMPACT Engine System™ and I have not regretted it. There is such a wealth of information in the IMPACT Engine System™ itself. And I don’t regret for a minute having signed up for this. And it’s given me what I’ve needed to build a new PMO.


Laura’s mentoring and the IMPACT Engine System™ program has been invaluable to me. It’s given me confidence and guidance through the challenges that I face as a PMO of one currently.  I can’t thank Laura and her team enough for helping me learn and grow professionally over the last couple of years.  Today, I not only work consistently and confidently with our leadership, but I’m also able to help coach others in our organization through the project management process.


Beyond useful! A whole new meaning – PMO should be Project Management Optimized with PMO Strategies!


The Impact 90 Day PMO has given me the tools to move that project management needle in our organization.  Laura is a fantastic coach. She shares personal experiences. What’s worked, what hasn’t worked and that’s very relatable.  The materials that are provided are priceless and I highly recommend The Impact 90 Day PMO.


I was awakened by the health assessment results that changed how I want to take my PMO forward after 7 years in this role.


If you’re worried about the money, don’t think about that. I used the word investment all the time. I invested without the green light from my business because I thought this was so important. And it is, but it’s so good that my boss reimburses me my money, that’s how good this program is.


Having enrolled on the IMPACT Engine System™ program with her, that has made an absolute difference in my life in terms of the headaches and the pain that I would have had.  I have no hesitation in recommending Laura and joining the program as early as you can because as we speak, time is running out for you. Go ahead, join the program, make the best of it, and Laura will help you get to where you have to get to for you to make that impact that you need.


I would highly recommend the program. There’s also coaching involved with the program. I would highly recommend that and there’s other aspects of services and products in the PMO strategies and I would just highly recommend all of that and it’s really increased my depth of project management, but also the speed of what I need to learn.


You can save yourself so much time and energy if you are truly part of the PMO and what you’re building out and even project management, this makes sense.   It’s not a lot of time and energy but look at the results I got. I’ve felt more confident going into this role than I ever have going into any other role.


I love this program. I’ve been working on it for several months and it has given me a lot of ”Ahaaa” moments, and solutions to my, well more company’s problem. It is really hands-on PMO methodology and the best part are workshops within the worldwide student group and invited speakers where we learn from each other and get the best possible high lever expert guidance.


It’s really nice to not feel like I’m on an island by myself. Like, when I went to the impact summit, I was like, gosh, all of these other people are just like me. I’m not alone. So, I mean, I really value having the input of the group and, you know, all your guidance and all of that along the way kind of helps.


Questions? We’ve got answers

In this program, we focus on developing YOU as a leader in your organization so you can elevate your IMPACT and grow in your career. We give you targeted training, in-depth step-by-step guidance on how to build or elevate your organization to create more organizational value and along the way, build credibility while delivering stellar results.

Laura Barnard, Founder and Chief IMPACT Driver for PMO Strategies and Top Global PMO Influencer of the Year for 2021-2022 runs this program while also giving you access to top global thought-leaders in this community to guide and coach you on various aspects of delivering huge value in this role. Laura built this entire program based on more than 25 years of experience in your shoes as a PMO leader for 15 years then as a PMO consultant, trainer, and coach for a decade. This program is the same step-by-step system that we use with our clients that are getting transformational results with their PMOs, but you get it at a fraction of the cost!

This is a year-long program you participate in right from the comfort of your own home or office that starts the week you sign up. You begin onboarding activities right away and get access to our online platform and upcoming meeting and training schedule.

We provide you with loads of resources, guidance, and support to help you setup your annual plan and iterative cycles of value delivery every quarter based on your organization’s needs and your career goals.

You’ll receive an email with your login information and links to the platform as soon as you complete registration and sign your coaching agreement. Check your spam or junk folder and make sure to add PMO Strategies to your safe sender list.

The truth is, you can’t afford NOT to be in this program if you’re serious about building and running a PMO that your business leaders NEED to help them accomplish their organizational strategy.

You aren’t buying a course, you are buying an outcome. One of the most important aspects of this program is that we teach you to think, act, talk, and LEAD like a business leader. That means you’re quickly going to develop skills that help you earn a seat at the table in the most important conversations taking place in your leadership team. They need YOU and your team to help them solve business problems and we’re going to show you exactly how to do that.

Step one is understanding the true value of your investments in your time, energy, and resources and this program will help you maximize the benefit you can see for the investment you make.

Of course, we understand that having the actual cash flow to invest can be a little trickier, especially if you’re paying for it out of pocket. That’s why we offer a payment plan through PayPal payment plan options. Just click Order Now Pay Later at checkout or apply for PayPal Credit.

Note: Although we cannot make any promises, many of our students get reimbursed by their business leaders once they’ve started showing how much value they are creating with what they’ve learned.

This program is a year-long support system that relies heavily on your commitment and investment to your own success. If you do not engage with the program, you will not see results. You have 14 days to request a refund and if one is granted based on your circumstances, you will be refunded the payment amount minus the administrative and credit card processing fees of 5%.

If you are building a PMO, elevating an existing PMO, or getting a PMO back on track, and you want to have a support network of top industry thought-leaders and your peers beside you each step of the way, then this program is for you.

Most importantly, if you do the work, you will get the results. This program works if you do the work.

If you are hoping for a quick fix, aren’t willing to invest in your own success, or tend to let life happen to you instead of taking charge and getting results, then this program is not for you.

We’re building a community of action-takers that are willing to put their energy into making big things happen in their careers and organizations.


We have students that join after they “try to get settled” and then they find that they would have been so much better off with the resources we include in the program!

Those first few weeks in the new role are critical. You need to know who to talk to and what you should be asking and looking for in those first onboarding discussions and meet-and-greet conversations. First impressions are important! AND there are resources in Step 1 and Step 2 you will want to have to go through this process. Step 1 will help you get very clear on why your PMO is there and Step 2 will help you uncover exactly what you should focus on first to build credibility and momentum quickly.

Remember, by the time they put you in this role, they have already been dealing with challenges or pain points they want addressed for months or years and so you are already behind the eight ball on day one. Annoying, but true.

This program takes you step-by-step through what to do, in what order, why it matters, how to do it, and then gives you the resources to do it – at your own pace so there’s no overwhelm or going to fast or not having time to do it all.  In the bonus kickstart session, I will help you lay out a realistic plan that not only ensures your success but helps you save tons of time wondering what to do, keeps you from making unnecessary mistakes, and ensures you’re on the right track for YOUR particular situation.

Absolutely! The deliverables you create using our templates inside your PMO are copyright free and available for you to use internally for your PMO. However, you cannot sell or distribute them beyond your organization.

We have a special program for organizations if you would like to invite your PMO team members to the program. Contact us here to get special pricing and all the support you need to be successful.

If you are working as a consultant and plan to use these in multiple organizations, contact us here for special details and all the support you need to be successful in supporting your clients. We want to help you help your clients succeed, just like we do!

Just reach out!

Our team of customer care specialists are here to help if you run into tech problems, have a question about the program or just want to say hello. You can reach us here.

That’s actually how most PMOs start out. We have students with big teams, students with only a couple of people, and students that are a PMO of one and trying to figure out where and how to get started. We figure all that out in their kickstart session and lay out a realistic and targeted plan that works even if you are only dedicating part of your time to “building” while the rest of your time is spent “doing” various PM/PMO tasks.

Yes! Laura will review your deliverables you’re creating for your PMO during the coaching sessions or provide you direct feedback on your particular materials in the coaching portal.


This is an individualized coaching program tailored to YOU and your career.

However, we highly encourage all team members to take part in this program! After all, your team needs to be on the same page as you are shifting your mindset and building your PMO or transforming how the PMO delivers IMPACT. That’s why we have a special program for organizations. Contact us here to get the special pricing so all PMO team members can benefit from the program.

If you are working as a consultant and plan to use these materials in multiple organizations, contact us here for special circumstances terms. We want to help you help your clients succeed, just like we do! In fact, we are developing special programs specifically to support those serving as consultants and coaches and we’ll make sure you have everything you need to have a great experience and blow your customers away!

We have a special program for organizations that would like to have more than one person participate in the program. In fact, we encourage your whole PMO team to participate! They need to learn what you are learning to help you grow and accelerate your PMO service delivery. If you would like to invite your PMO team members to the program, contact us here to get the details.


You get both private and group coaching with Laura in the coaching forum and in the group coaching sessions. Laura will communicate with you privately in your private workspace, as well as review your PMO deliverables. She answers questions in the coaching group forum and on the live group coaching sessions and in our live guest speaker sessions, as well.

Group coaching participants will have plenty of opportunities to get direct feedback from Laura and your peers on your particular PMO scenario and to answer any questions about the course or applying the techniques in your organization.
