Project Management (PMI Certified)

Our PMO services were established to provide our customers with mobile project management expertise.

1) PMO Setup
+ Program PMO: We help establish the PMO foundations, organizational structure, tools, processes, etc. Everything you need to be successful in initiating, planning, executing, controlling and closing projects regardless of the size.
+ Project based PMO: This is a trimmed down version of the full program offering. We setup a PMO for the purposes of managing a single project then decommission the PMO when the project is complete.

2) Staff Augmentation
+ Whitsell Consulting maintains an internal PMO where we staff only PMI certified project managers with senior level experience and education. These project managers work either on-site or virtually. Most of our engagements are done off site in a virtual office where we leverage our internal experiences and knowledge.

3) RFP Design
+ This offering was setup specifically to assist customers in designing, building and submitting RFI / RFQ / RFP’s.

4) PMO Audit
+ This service was established to assist customers with evaluating their current project management process and procedures. From establishing project charters to lessons learned, we look under all the covers and provide analysis and feedback based on industry knowledge, best practices and experience.

The nature of doing business in today’s economy forces companies to put enormous pressure on projects to be on time, on budget with quality results. IT projects are typically high risk, high visibility and impact most or all business units. Yet, the success rate of IT projects is less than 30%. So why undertake a project where the likelihood of failure is 70% or greater? Business requires it, right? Whitsell Consulting has been working in this environment for years and recognizes the need of excellence in project management whether it's new product development, technology refreshes, system design and development, telecommunication, data center builds/ moves, etc.. We can make your project successful!

Some of the challenges facing businesses today are:
1) Coordinating and managing resources. Coordinating 3rd parties, OEM / Vendors, internal IT organizations (Storage Team, Systems Admin’s, Networking, etc..) and the various business units are often outside the expertise or experience of most employees.

2) Necessary project processes and controls in place to be successfully are not part of the normal day to day operation of most businesses. Communication planning, steering committees, issues and escalations, risk assessments, business unit requirements, getting to the data, and networking groups are just some of the processes that need to exist. The numbers of challenges continue on and on and the details get more complex. Fortunately, Whitsell Consulting has a solution.
