Services - Project

Do you have an important project, but lack the expertise or time to develop a formal project plan?

Our senior level consultant has successfully managed complex projects for a worldwide corporation (see examples). The key factors of success were rooted in sound Project Management and leadership techniques to achieve business results for any type of project. Jump-start your project with proven experience and a process tailored to your company's needs - at a lower cost than from a large consulting firm.

We provide three levels of services that combine your specific business knowledge with our project management skills:

1. Initial Assessment & Consultation - a basic review of the scope, size, skills, and key objectives for your project. An initial assessment will be provided for an appropriately sized Project Management Process, any key gaps you may have, and services we can offer. Depending on the scope & size, this will be done within a half-day working session, followed by an initial assessment report within 24 hours. A quick quote for this service can be provided over the phone.

2. Project Plan Framework - our senior consultant works with your team leader in a workshop setting to:

  • Define and document key objectives, deliverables, resources, and metrics (quality & cost)
  • Define and document key stakeholders, team structure, and team membership
  • Identify key risks and risk management approach
  • Approach, agenda, and format for productive project team meetings
  • Define the format, media, and content for effective status reporting
  • Provide a format and process to prioritize, document, and handle the many issues that can overwhelm a team
  • Personalized Q&A session with your team leader on where/why projects go wrong and adaptive leadership style
  • One free follow-up review to assess the project management process and recommendations for improvement
  • Services will be provided on a hourly rate based on scope and size of the project.

3. Optional Services for ongoing project support

  • Document the plan with Microsoft Project or Excel and a process to share the plan via email or a web site
  • Provide administrative support to keep the plan up-to-date, freeing your team leader to focus on resolving issues and delivering results. This service is provided by an administrative assistant skilled in MS Project documentation and under the direction of your team leader.
  • Reviews with the senior consultant to assess the ongoing project management process and recommendations.

4. Project Startup Package - for small to mid-size projects we offer a basic package with:

  • 8 hours of instruction (in 1 or 2 sessions) on the basics of Project Management for up to 4 people
  • 2 hours of follow-on consulting
  • Economically priced at $450.
