Project Management Consulting

Project Life Cycle Management Consulting

Project management consultants bring specialized skills and knowledge to assist companies in making the best possible business decisions. They typically provide oversight and leadership in executing projects from planning to completion. A consultant working as a freelancer or independent contractor typically offers several payment options, including payment by the hour, by project or on retainer. Some clients prefer to be billed by the hour. Others prefer paying by project, viewing it, perhaps, as a way to prevent consultants from padding hours.
More generous employers may also provide retirement benefits, bonuses, and even employee profit sharing. When you’re an IC, you get no such benefits. You must pay for your own health insurance, often at higher rates than employers have to pay. Project management consultants can not only add value to a project, but they can help introduce project management processes to any team. It’s a great career transition for current project managers to consider. Jennifer Bridges, PMP, shows you what PM skills, PM tools and related experience you need to succeed in this competitive field. As project management becomes a more defined career and in-demand profession, the need for consultancy also increases across all industries. Beyond the technical and experiential skills required, a project management consultant needs to have interpersonal skills, which Jennifer outlined.
1. Be Accountable: You’re there to provide direction, which means you must take ownership of the decisions you make and not pass the buck.
2. Be Reliable: Nobody follows someone they don’t trust, so do what you say you will do and build a strong relationship with the project team.
3. Be Resourceful: Every project has different constraints, but you must think creatively and freshly to pull it through difficult times to a successful end.
4. Follow-Up: You need to not merely give orders, but manage that process, which means following up to see if there are any issues.
5. Follow-Through: If there are issues, then it’s your responsibility to resolve them, not just give them lip service.
