Project Management & Change Management

Big or small, successful project management is a juggling act of motivating teams, coordinating schedules and maintaining a budget  Change management, on the other hand, entails engaging the people side of projects and mobilizing teams to execute when the project is ready.  Our time tested project and change management techniques help our clients make things happen on their teams and in their organizations.

How it Works

Less than 20% of all projects finish on time, within scope and on budget. Yes, you read that correctly:  Less than 20%.  In today’s workplace, employees often find themselves taking on multiple projects, working with fewer resources and pressed for time.  Projects also require collaboration amongst multiple employees, each responsible for various aspects of the project.  Without a uniform method for managing projects, their related tasks, resources and relationships, project managers run the risk of losing control of the success of the project. 

Just as there is a process to completing a project, every project requires a change process for helping people get on board with and then execute the new process, technology or strategy.  Without this, many projects wither as they become bogged down with change resistance or at best half-hearted implementation.

Our expertise in Project and Change Management provides organizations with the necessary tools to build a strong project plan, mobilize their workforce to execute and make exciting things happen for their clients. 

Our Approaches to Project and Change Management:



Project Management

Our Project Management workshops are not lectures:  we take a hands-on, simulation-based approach to learning.  Working through multiple project simulations using our proven process, participants are able to experience the process from start to finish – testing ideas, confronting challenges – before implementing changes to their existing work.

There are a lot of moving parts to a project:  from the various roles played by each member of the project team, to the technology that can aid in project planning.  In our Project Management suite of workshops, you will find a workshop that addresses each of these moving parts.  And if you don’t?  Let us know!  We’re happy to work with you to create a workshop that fits your unique project management needs.  A sample of our workshops include:

  • Project Management Breakthroughs
  • Managing Your Project with Microsoft Project (Beginner)
  • Influencing for Project Managers
  • Working Smart with Microsoft Project (Intermediate to Advanced)
  • Project Management Breakthroughs for Executives & Project Sponsors
