Project and program managers
What people think makes a successful Project Manager and what it really takes may well be a surprise.
There is so much written about what makes for a successful and effective project manager. Read the textbook and methodologies, and you may be misled into thinking its all about creating artefacts.
At Core Consulting Group (CCG), our focus is on delivering the project outcomes, not just the deliverables. This is particularly important for a strategic project.
We understand the need for traditional project management skills and experience. However, our focus when recruiting is on the interpersonal and communication skills and the ability to influence and lead people.
Our project and program managers are highly trained, skilled, and experienced. They are outcome-orientated with experience across a wide range of delivery approaches and methodologies, and are able to adapt to each new environment quickly and effectively.
Through knowledge of PMBOK, PRINCE2, Managing Successful Programs (MSP) and Agile philosophies, our project managers are ready to apply best-practice principles to each engagement, bringing with them CCG standards and tools if needed. Whether they are called a Project manager, Scrum master or Iteration manager or Project manager it is their style and approach which make the biggest impact.
Requests for program managers are not common, so more often than not we will utilise expert freelance program managers we have worked with in the past.
