It is no wonder why enterprises do not trust project management consulting firms when all the firms care about is how to insert more full-time staff or increase their billable hours. Instead, consultants should focus on the enterprises outcomes and needs, such as growth of PM skill sets, successful project delivery, knowledge growth and the like.
Every client we service always have the same concerns:
No longer do you need to just fill advisory hours but instead work towards an outcome of increasing weak knowledge areas in each project delivery team member.

Almost instant access to expert advisors that you can trust with any of your projects, portfolios and career movements, no matter the time, complexity or request.
Understanding the ‘gaps’ in each project members skillsets to set and form a plan to ensure their level of project, technical and behaviour skills will always improve
Get help to evaluate and select which PM in your team will be best suited to deliver a particular project to improve the chance for successful delivery

No matter if your PM’s are at the highest or lowest level, you only pay for the advice that is used or assigned and can scale up or down as needed
This is a tough situation for every portfolio, program or project manager to master, as nothing replaces the value of face-to-face evaluations.
However, Project Focus HQ has built an evaluation platform and approach that has been proven time and time again to extract the most valuable information from you PM team's capabilities. The core assessment areas geared towards reviewing the teams technical, behavioural and project skills, with the ability to compare each members abilities across the whole company.
The review approach will enable you to request these individual reviews from previous project members who worked alongside each individual. This also gives you the face-to-face transparency of each individual's capability, no matter the location.
Project management can be one of the most demanding positions day-to-day; which is why education, development and growth always come second best for project managers.
Through our Project Focus HQ Performance platform, your team members are evaluated and scored, which will suggest which educated areas must be a priority. Based on these, you business can focus on improving key competencies that are indicated as lacking:
1. Behavioural capabilities
2. Industry and technical understanding
3. Project delivery knowledge and ability
This is a common risk that a project manager might experience from time to time and is not easy to handle when it does happen.
Unlike most advisory or coaching teams, Project Focus HQ Performance can be scaled up to support projects where and when they are needed. As our team will have access to most parts of your projects, we will easily understand the business benefits, scope, schedule, budget and project data to assist with guidance and support.
Although Project Focus HQ Performance is not a PM resourcing organization, we can adapt to your needs immediately, without leaving you out to dry.
There is a false mantra that there are only being two options to gain access to project management experts:
1. To have scheduled reviews by expensive resources every month
2. To have a full-time external (or internal) consultant for key projects
Project Focus HQ Performance does not believe in this structure because we feel that advisors must adjust to what is needed to deliver a project successfully. This is why we offer a 'pay for what you need' approach on all of our project and portfolio management coaches so that when you request them, they are instantly available, without a large monthly retainer cost or flat monthly fee.
Let's add another complexity to the question and ask how to do that when the advisor cannot see them face-to-face, how would you ensure consistent advice and support? The reason we added another layer is because Project Focus HQ Performance can still handle it.
Most of our clients deliver projects with our methodology, standards, processes and templates (Project Focus HQ Knowledge) as well as use our tool (Project Focus HQ). This makes transparency extremely easy for our advisory team to see all project data, analyse current issues and match them all to the standards the projects are being delivered to. All of this transparency allows complete conformity and consistency of the advice coming from the Project Focus HQ Performance team to the businesses project delivery requirements.
Project Management Advisory can be similar to schools. There are good teachers who spend as much time and effort needed to grow their students, but then there are some teachers who only want the pay cheque. Neither is wrong but when you are the paying customer, having an advisor who focuses on improvement, knowledge and understanding far exceeds the other.
Project Focus HQ guarantees this level of delivery to you with our key fundamentals:
Projects progressively grow, change and adapt depending on the businesses needs – however, the external consultants used to help grow skills, guide the PM team and be the support either want to be full-time resources or have set consulting hours, no matter if there are problems or not. This has to change where advisors adapt to a business, just like projects do.
Project Focus HQ Performance adapts to your business, your needs, your time and most importantly, to you.
