Project Management Consulting

1. Overview

Effective project management (PM) is a key success factor for the modern businesses, which build their operational foundation on project-type activities. Project management methods are being used across a variety of industries: IT and Telecom, Construction and Energy, Pharmacy and Investment. Today, project management plays a much greater role in many organizations, than a decade or two ago. The demand for professional project managers with universal skills is significantly higher than the supply available on the Russian job market. PM Expert offers a number of project management solutions that have already been successfully launched in major companies:

  • Assessment and Audit
  • Consulting Solutions

Our experience confirms the fact that effective corporate project management is built on methods and standards of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – the quintessence of the world’s best PM practices. Moreover, it greatly complements existent Russian expertise in project management. PM Expert is the first company on the Russian PM market that acquired official certification by the Project Management Institute (PMI)® – a leading non-commercial organization promoting excellence and professionalism in project management.

2. Project management Assessment & Audit

The role of project-type activities rises along with urgent necessity to deliver projects on time and according to the plan and budget.

The key elements of the CPMS include:

  • Corporate Project & Portfolio Management Methodology;

Each component of this triade incorporates an array of solutions. Their number and selection is justified to a great degree by the needs and the specificity of the Customer’s business.
