My speciality is agile project management. My approach is to Build Project Managers™ and to get things done. To achieve these objectives, while providing affordable consulting services to my clients, I have developed a methodology PMOHOST™ (Rent an Agile Project Manager). Rent a Project Manager is an agile project management consulting service, which main objectives are:

  • Develop and Deploy the Agile PM methodology,
  • Kick off and manage your projects/portflio,
  • Mentor your project managers.
Become an Agile Project Manager

Why?

I developed this approach based on the fact that you do not need full time project managers all the time. You need a full time experts (team members) working on your project (execution phase). The concept is based on the Agile PM project life cycle model, which follows the agile project manager' work through initiation, planning, monitoring, and closing phases. Execution is a team effort, supported by the monitoring function of an agile project manager.

How Does It Work?

Most of the agile project manager' time is spent in planning phase and monitoring phase of your project. Your experts (team members) do the work and meet with the agile project manager to report the status of the project. Agile project manager process the data and reports the progress of the project to upper management. This approach allows project progress in increments, creating a fast pace work environment, which brings better communication, less risk and less errors in your project outputs.

How Much Do you Save?

Our PMOHOST™ (Rent-an-Agile Project Manager) solution is a combination of 20% on-site agile project management consulting services, usually around 40 hours of work per month and up to 80% virtual agile project management consulting services, usually around 20 or more hours of work per month. Thus, instead of paying a project manager for 160 hours of total time he/she spends at your location (actual work + downtime), you should only pay between 60 to 80 hours of his/her actual work. In other words, you use Rent an Agile Project Manager to plan, host, manage, maintain, and troubleshoot your projects/portfolio, onsite and offsite. You pay only for the time we work on your project and you determine how many hours of work do you need from us. You save by not paying for the agile project manager' downtime.

By outsourcing your project you will:
  • Cut the overhead costs and increase efficiency and ROI.
  • Keep Focus on your core products and services.
  • Obtain world class expertise.

In addition to our Rent an Agile Project Manager service, I offer a Project Management Maturity Assessments service as well. This service will help you assess your existing PM practices, and develop and deploy project management best practices that will fit your organization' project management needs.
