Extensive experience in setting up and improving process management and identifying and improving operational deficiencies.
Project Balance has extensive experience with setting up and managing departments and project management offices (PMO). Together with clients, we review and map the key operational processes and overlay the available resources. We identify where processes can be optimized for maximum productivity. Key performance metrics that align with the program or company department are explored and core set established. Performance metrics data collection tools may need to be developed whether simple spreadsheets or a more complicated database. One of the hardest part of running a department or PMO is the ongoing management. Project Balance staff helps our clients establish repeatable processes that can be realistically followed with consistent results.

Project Balance staff have worked with organizations on office allocation, staff and skills planning and forecasting, time management and use of timesheets, project planning and forecasting, employee contracts and compensation packages, and capacity building of operations and technical staff. Project Balance aids clients to communicate effectively across all levels of the organization to ensure compliance and efficiencies within operations.
