Take Your PMO from Zero to IMPACT in 90 Days

Without having to pay six-figure consulting fees!

As a PMO leader, you already know how important a PMO can be to an organization. Yet we all know too many stories of PMOs with average, or worse, failing results. Why are there so many PMOs struggling to survive?

Many PMO leaders feel like they have to do everything at once. That often leads to slow progress and very little impact to the organization – putting the PMO on the chopping block before it’s had the chance to show value.

Business leaders want to see instant IMPACT, immediate results, and immense return on investment. You can’t take a year or more to build things that we think the business needs. 

It’s time for PMO leaders to resolve the battle between driving change quickly and delivering sustainable results.

Laura Barnard Change Management Consultant

Does this sound like you?

  • You’ve been tasked with starting a PMO and aren’t sure where to start.
  • You wish you could afford a partner to walk you through every step of the process.
  • You want to up-level your PMO to ensure sustainability.
  • Your PMO is under attack and you need to show results, fast.
  • Your PMO is barely surviving and you’re ready to get it thriving!
  • You’re ready to take action and commit to building a successful PMO.

If so, you are in the right place!

This step-by-step course will help you build a strong and sustainable PMO from the start or take your PMO to the next level of IMPACT. 

Learn the exact same system I use with my clients to create a PMO that your business leaders are craving and ensure that your PMO continues to evolve and sustain even when the “priorities shift” in your organization. 

Laura helped us build project management capacity and deliver important change at a critical time in the evolution of our organization. The results exceeded our expectations and enabled us to accelerate progress towards our goals. Best of all, we are now more self-sufficient with respect to all aspects of portfolio and project management.

Clear Your PMO Path

It’s not an easy time for PMOs. Even in the best of cultures, and with plenty of funding, you will face challenges you didn’t expect.

So what do you do to make sure you make the most of the one chance you are being given to get this right?

You have three options:

  • You can go it alone. You can gather all the books and research on what others have done, pouring through the different approaches, techniques, and what will feel like mountains of conflicting information. Time will go by and your leaders will get restless wondering when the PMO will finally make an IMPACT.
  • You can hire an expensive consultant to build the PMO for you. In fact, the system I’m sharing with you is the exact framework I apply with my clients and we get amazing results for 5 and 6 figure price tags. However, I‘ve seen many other consultants claim experience they don’t have, do the bait and switch from sales to onsite team, leave you with a solution that isn’t sustainable, or try to sell you on ongoing consulting fees that can get ridiculous!
  • You can make a small investment in a partner like me that will help you along the way, leveraging the same system and techniques applied in REAL WORLD PMOs over the last 20 years. Essentially, you’re getting access to all the knowledge that makes me a six figure consultant - for a fraction of the cost!

With the harsh reality that nearly 50% of PMO projects fail, it’s easy to see why so many business leaders struggle to understand the value of PMOs – and why they are so quick to pull the plug on them.

That’s exactly what I’m offering with IMPACT Engine PMO.
