TRAINING

We do three types of workshops.

  • Microsoft Project workshops
  • Microsoft Project Server workshops
  • Project management workshops

These days, there is no one size fits all off-the-shelf training because everyone has different objectives, timing and cost constraints and most importantly, a wide range of experience. People also work in different industries, work on different types of projects, deploy different aspects of the software, and…they use the software differently.

So…we start with you, what you want, what our experience suggests you might need, your objectives, your people and cost constraints and then build a custom workshop for you.

That isn’t a lot work for us, we have been doing this for a long time. We don’t charge for this customization and it is the best way to do a conduct a workshop if you want the best results. We give you exactly what you want and need.

MODES OF PRESENTATION

We can conduct a custom workshop on-site at your location. 

Every once in a while people want to come to us. We can set that up and special pricing for meeting space applies.

We can conduct the workshop with your teamremotely using a meeting tool like gotomeeting. Usually, when we do remote training we do the workshops in two to four hour blocks of time and we schedule each session like we would a meeting.

Note: we often do a combination of on-site and remote training.

CONSULTING

There is two primary types of consulting we do. The first is Microsoft Project Server configuration and deployment consulting.

The second is project manager coaching and development.

Regarding coaching, our model is pretty simple. First we figure out where your project managers are in terms of maturity, experience, and effectiveness. Then, together with you we lay out a plan to develop their skills. We have a lot of ideas on how to do that we would love to share with you.

Consulting is typically divided into three areas:

  • Microsoft Project Server configuration and deployment consulting. We talk a lot about this on our blog, but contact us for a review meeting to find out more. Often Project Server configuration consulting starts off with a custom workshop where we actually work on your configuration during the workshop.
  • An audit and review of your Project Server configuration and business processes.
  • Project Server, or enterprise project management implementation and maturity consulting.
  • Project Server or enterprise project management compliance and performance management.
  • Last, we perform audits on Microsoft Project plans against best practices, and a list of industry maturity criteria related to how the project is built.

MODES OF CONSULTING

We can do consulting on-site at your location. 

Every once in a while people want to come to us. We can set that up and special pricing for meeting space applies.

We can do the consulting with your teamremotely using a meeting tools like gotomeeting. Usually, when we do remote consulting we do the work in two to four hour blocks of time and we schedule each session like we would a meeting.

Or, we schedule meetings around issues and or questions.

It is common for an organization to purchase a block of consulting hours that expire by a certain date and then chip away at those hours with scheduled remote sessions that are based on need and interest. We often refer to this type of consulting as remote support.
