“Project Management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to a broad range of activities in order to meet the requirements of a particular project.” -PMI

I provide proven expertise across all components of Project Management on an “as-needed” basis. If your company lacks in-house Project Management skills, you can utilize my services for all phases of a project, from conception through closure, or for any phase(s) you require for your particular project, only when you need it.

My services include the overall organization, coordination and hands-on management of the entire project life-cycle, including development of Statements of Work (SOW) and Service Level Agreements (SLA) with external contracted vendors if required.

My comprehensive Project Management offerings can be tailored to your needs and can be easily executed to identify, address and mitigate risks related to the management, execution and control of complex projects. I will work with your internal team of resources and/or a cross-functional team of internal and external resources provided by vendors. Knowing how to bring the right resources together, internally and externally, will aid in making your project a success.

Not only do I have the experience to roll-up my sleeves to help drive your high-priority project to successful completion, but I also have the expertise to mentor your personnel through the process of adopting a more structured approach. If you require a customized approach, I will work with your organization to deliver near-term successes on your projects.
