Project Management is a growing need in many organizations which creates a continued challenge to define project management processes, resource planning, forecasting, and other major business demands.

Design & Deployment of a New PMO
If your organization is in need of a new Project Management Office (PMO) the first step is to take a look at the current picture and see what tools and processes are already in place that we can leverage.

We are use to the tough situations, so if you have a program or project that is failing and you’d like to see if it’s possible to recover it, give us the opportunity to help you. We will start by reviewing the current state of the project to identify the areas that are in trouble. Some common areas of concern deal with scope, resource availability, roles & responsibilities, and project monitoring & control.
Once we understand where you are, our team of professionals will analyze your project’s current situation and develop a Corrective Action Plan to put you back on track. We’ll present this plan to you and the key stakeholders, and if it’s accepted we’ll help you implement it for maximized success.
Complete PMO can help your organization navigate through the complexities of organizational change to ensure you’re ready for change, prepared to lead the change, and able to validate & maintain that change. We will work within your organizations culture and core values to develop a Change Management Plan which will include the current status, the desired change, and how to monitor and reinforce that change post implementation.
We use a system of change management based on Prosci’s change management methodology which acknowledges the importance of paying attention to both individual and organizational change management throughout the process.
Organization’s do not change without the individuals who make up that organization changing, so we focus on managing the individuals by leveraging to Prosci’s ADKAR model:
- Awareness of the need for change
- Desire to participate and support the change
- Knowledge on how to change
- Ability to implement the desired skills and behaviors
- Reinforcement to maintain the change
At the organizational level we pull things together through excellent communication and training. Change happens in three simple stages:
Prepare For Change
In this first step towards change we have to set the stage by determining just how much change management is needed for this specific project. To do this we have to identify the situation as-is and begin developing our strategy to implement the changes your organization needs.
In our second step towards organizational change we are going to focus on creating the plan to implement the change. This plan requires five key elements including:
- Communications Plan
- Sponsorship Roadmap
- Training Plan
- Coaching Plan
- Resistance Management Plan
The biggest failure of change management is reinforcing the new behaviors you’ve worked hard to create, which is why this third and final stage of the process is reinforcing the change. We do this through a number of techniques including putting reinforcement mechanisms into play, running compliance audits, corrective action plans and celebrating the success of the organization. After all is said and done, we review the processes for a lessons learned that is vital to your organizational assets.
