Our Story


Founded in 1998 by Bill Stewart, a pioneer of the project office concept and 30-year project management veteran, PMLG is the leader in project, program and portfolio management implementations and in the delivery of experiential-based leadership training and certification.

Our mission is to help our clients rapidly transform their organizations to a culture of strategic execution excellence. We are committed to bringing our wealth of knowledge, tools, techniques, and experiences to our clients so that they may rapidly achieve their goal of project, program and portfolio management success.  Moving an organization to strategic execution excellence involves a significant shift in culture. Over the past 25 years thousands of initiatives to implement PMO’s, EPMO’s and project, program and portfolio management governance have failed because transformation in culture did not occur. Our business transformations are successful because we have taken a different approach. We focus on changing behavior and providing practical and proven tools and techniques so that the implementations are rapid and sustainable. We are different in the following significant ways:

OUR PROJECT, PROGRAM AND PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT IMPLEMENTATIONS

All project, program and portfolio management implementations provide processes and tools. But only ours provides the kind of training necessary to transform the culture – so that the processes and tools are used consistently and successfully – and the change is sustained and easily maintained. To transform a culture, behavior must change. Traditional project management training continues to fail in providing significant and sustainable behavior change. Experiential-based training is recognized as the most effective means for changing behavior; that is why, since 2000, we have provided our clients with the only experiential-based project management training program available anywhere. This intense, five-day program has proven to rapidly mature both the project management and leadership skills of students while providing them with the confidence and discipline to begin immediately applying a consistent approach to project management. Additionally, we use the same exciting experiential-based training approach to provide executives and managers with the skills and confidence to reinforce the project, program, and portfolio management transformation initiative.

TRANSFORMATION TO STRATEGIC EXECUTION EXCELLENCE

A common cause of PMO implementations is that they take too long…often years pass before any measurable benefits are realized. Typically, this is because of the lack of experience and knowledge within the PMO and a “reinventing the wheel” approach to producing project, program and portfolio processes and tools. We provide rapid success by providing turnkey consultants that each have at least 15 years of successful project, program, and portfolio management implementation experience. Several of our consultants are pioneers of the concept with over 20 years of experience. We do not place inexperienced consultants onsite to learn at our client’s expense. Our focus is to leave behind our knowledge and experience with our client and not on gaining knowledge and experience from our clients. We eliminate “reinventing the wheel” by providing our web-based PPM toolkit, PMeXecute. PMeXecute has a comprehensive set of project, program and portfolio management processes and tools, combined with easy-to-use / easy-to-maintain guidelines. Our clients are up and running on Day One with practical and proven processes, tools, lessons learned, tips and guidelines for establishing and conducting project, program, and portfolio management

PMLG’S EXPERIENCED STAFF

Our consultants are also available to provide just in time support, such as project health checks and coaching, launching projects or programs, leading projects or programs, recovering troubled projects or programs, implementing enterprise program and portfolio management systems, and coaching to executives, the PMO and project/program managers.

EXPERIENTIAL-BASED LEADERSHIP TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

We are the only firm that delivers experiential-based project management and leadership immersion training, proven to rapidly mature skills.  For the past 20 years, we have provided the CPM and ITCPM Boot Camp programs to our clients, helping the develop a cadre of outstanding leaders and helping ensure consistent and successful planning and execution of strategic projects.

Very worthwhile program from many views, hands-on training combined with foundation of document tools was most useful. Excellent instructors! Learning team dynamics and leadership skills was an excellent experience!
