Programme & Project Management Office as a Service
Whether your company just needs a PMO service for an interim period while you establish your own PMO, EPMO, APMO, PgMO, an ” Out of the box” solution in a hurry, or a full service on-going solution NJM Consulting can help. Our consultancy can assist in scoping your PMO requirement and planning its implementation.
Institutional Memory Service
One of the underrated costs of employee turnover, in addition to the costs of recruiting and training new employees, is the loss of institutional knowledge represented by departing or off-boarding employees. When employees leave your company, they take with them a lot of valuable knowledge, connections, expertise and social capital that can be difficult to replace. NJMC offers an Institutional Memory Service -Knowledge Management Enhanced if you prefer.
Our experienced PMO trainers can develop a training plan and/or mentoring programme to support fledgling PMO staff. Training can be delivered via a variety of mediums from in person training to online instructor led, to bespoke training videos. We can even support a number of European language formats.
Project & Portfolio Engagement Service
NJM Consulting offers a full project and portfolio engagement service that will manage all your incoming project requests for multiple portfolios. Most organisations experience resource capability planning issues, which is greatly compounded when projects are managed in isolation. Our PPE Service helps to significantly reduce these issues by centralising the selection and prioritisation of projects – using the TransparentChoice tool to select the right projects at the right time based on resource and financial constraints.
NJM Consulting handles all the coordination of all external and internal stakeholders in the participation in the PPE Service, inclusive of all set-up activities, training and meeting coordination.
