Veracity Consulting’s PMO Practice Can Help Your Business Accelerate Success in 2015

Realign 2015 Business Initiatives With Veracity Consulting’s PMO

Rod_Mack_Vice_President

Rod Mack, Vice President, Strategic Solutions

As we launch into 2015, we are seeing signs of economic improvement with a more robust economy exhibiting growth in the GNP and employment rates. We are also seeing consistent restraint on behalf of the Federal Reserve to continue to maintain very modest growth in interest rates.

This renewed economic confidence has prompted increased spending by our clients for new business capabilities that have been put off for years. With these investments comes the need to bolster the project management capability within an enterprise to ensure the success of the new efforts.

Veracity Consulting brings a strong and established program and project management capability to assist companies in achieving their goals. We currently manage projects for our clients totaling well over $100M in cumulative value and consistently deliver these projects on-time/on-budget.

Our consultants bring experience and a replicable project management methodology complemented by a robust set of proven project management deliverables and templates. They are also supported by our Practice Leads, who provide a review of key deliverables and products to further reduce any inherent risks for major new effort and projects.

We place emphasis on the establishment of a strong governance capability through active engagement of company leadership and maintain transparency to ensure confidence in both our approach and results. We implement a project maturity assessment that results in a clear understanding of the current project management maturity of an organization. We will also take specific measurable steps to progress toward your maturity goal.  Veracity can help establish an ongoing PMO capability within your firm.  Learn more about our PMO solutions and when we can do for you.
