Project Management Training
Committed teams accomplish more-and one way to ensure their commitment is to involve them in the planning process. PMAlliance provides team members the right skills and knowledge to participate. As a part of our project management consulting services, we offer project management methodology, project management software and facilitator training for all stakeholders in your organization-from team members to managers, project sponsors to customers. We also have advanced project management training classes for your experienced managers and individuals involved in project office development.
PMAlliance training fills the project management knowledge gap between team members and provides a consistent approach for use by the entire team. Our PMI-certified trainers use a state-of-the-art curriculum to pose practical challenges, cultivate strong working relationships and arm your team with tools they can put to immediate use. They will be well equipped to participate in creating comprehensive project plans, implementing disciplined processes for maintaining those plans, and utilizing management reviews to ensure deliverables are completed in a timely manner.

Project Management Consulting
PMAlliance has an impressive track record of providing our clients with proven project management consulting solutions that are both effective and cost-efficient. Not only do our consultants have the experience to roll-up their sleeves to help drive your high-priority project to successful completion, but they also have the expertise to mentor your personnel through the process of adopting a more structured approach. If you require a customized approach, PMAlliance personnel will work with your organization to deliver near-term successes on your projects while moving your organization in the right direction.
Our consultants are required to be certified by the Project Management Institute (PMI). With four different levels of consultants, we are equipped to take on many different roles and provide a broad range of services including: project management training, mentoring, and on-site project office development.
Project Office Development
An internal Project Management Office (PMO) gives organizations the ability to achieve consistently successful results across their entire portfolio of projects-creating a foundation that can turn project management into a competitive advantage. Whether your organization is just beginning to explore the benefits of a formal PMO, or your existing PMO is not achieving the results management has intended, PMAlliance can help take your PMO to the next level. A Project Office fulfills two essential roles
It provides enterprise-level project management services. It serves as a project management center of excellence.
Implementing a formalized project management process in an organization that has not used a structured approach to project planning and control can present significant challenges. Our phased approach to implementation helps companies overcome resistance to change, allows lessons learned in early phases to be incorporated in the systems installed in later phases, and ensures that a solid foundation of project-level data is available prior to rolling-up enterprise-level information.
PMAlliance uses four implementation phases: Initiation, Project-Level Installation, Enterprise-Level Installation, and Maintenance.
The Initiation phase:
Mobilizes the organization. Remediates any current at-risk projects. Sets the stage for the Installation phases.
This phase includes the selection of pilot projects that have the potential for near-term successes, and the communication of those success stories to the organization.
The Project-Level Installation phase:
Provides a structured project planning and control process for all targeted projects. Creates the project management infrastructure necessary to support the consistent, successful application of project management
techniques by the Project Office on future projects.
Provides training and mentoring to the Project Office staff
The Enterprise-Level Installation phase:
Creates the infrastructure necessary to support business decision-making based on schedule, resource, and cost information
"rolled-up" from the entire portfolio of projects. Transitions the day-to-day responsibility for developing and maintaining individual project plans from PMAlliance to the Project
The Maintenance phase:
Transitions the responsibility for supporting all of the project management requirements of the organization to the Project Office staff. Ensures long-term continuity by establishing project management as a core competency and an essential function within the organization.
