PMO Strategies helped us build project management capacity and deliver important change at a critical time in the evolution of our organization. The results exceeded our expectations and enabled us to accelerate progress toward our goals. Best of all, we are now more self-sufficient with respect to all aspects of portfolio and project management.

In addition to bringing considerable, relevant expertise and experience, we found Laura and her team to be very well-organized, supportive and remarkably able to adjust and flex to our unique requirements and organizational style. As a result, our goal of enterprise wide engagement, adoption and utilization was achieved and I believe that we have a system that we can sustain and improve over time.

I found Laura to be an exceptional partner and benefited greatly from her considerable expertise, insight and ability to relate to me and my unique perspective, leadership and management style. Simply put, she made us all better.

There are many firms out there that will bring in large teams of resources to “do change” for you. They will gladly bring in an army of resources or implement a PMO or Project Management capability FOR you.

That’s not sustainable.

The minute they leave, that change unwinds. Or worse…they never leave!

That’s not cost-effective.

What if you could partner with an organization that can help you leverage the resources you are already paying for and a best-in-class approach to create effective and sustainable change, develop that project management capability, or establish that high-IMPACT PMO? With us by your side, you will start to see the positive change right away from the way your team talks about the work they do, to how intensely focused they become on delivering not just outputs, but the outcomes you need to grow your business.
