Having the right people with the right skills for priority projects is among the top three delivery challenges, according to PMI research. And one out of every six respondents in a 2020 survey conducted by Project Management Institute (PMI) say lack of talent with the right skillsets was the single most important factor responsible for project failure at their organization.

Why Use M&S Consulting PMaaS?

Planning, Resourcing, Managing, Motivating, Delivering, and Reporting

Strategic project management is imperative to any business, especially when everyone wants to get work done faster and cheaper. Project management serves a clear need, as companies encounter challenges when they have more projects than time to complete them. Many companies have project managers but in most cases, their methodology isn’t based around outcomes, but instead activities. Instead of managing a project to an end result, M&S Consulting PMaaS manages to the objective. It adds a layer that improves the effectiveness through enhanced accountability, greater communication and processes, and deep expertise. It also adds an independent voice and perspective.

Our Business Analysts will help to bridge the gap between IT and the Business by understanding your business needs and articulating those functional needs to the technical teams to deliver on and assist in technology adoption throughout the organization.

Project Rescue & Recovery

It is not uncommon for projects to be ‘in the red’ in one or more aspects of the project - scope, timeline, budget, resources, and functionality. By the time the pain is felt from the ‘red status’, the project is on a collision course towards failure. It requires a level of expertise only M&S Consulting PMaaS can bring to recognize the issues, rescue the project from imminent failure, quickly pivot towards recovery, sustain the recovery, and ensure the project can progress on track towards successful completion.

Vendor Analysis & Selection

It is critical to select the right vendor to deliver the right technology solution based on your organization’s needs. M&S Consulting PMaaS will effectively manage the vendor analysis and selection process by using a multi-criteria and unbiased decision-making approach to determine which technology solution will meet the client’s requirements. With this approach, we partner with you to ensure you are getting the right solution that will help you run and grow your business.

Project Health Assessment

Conducting a health check on all or a sample of projects will allow an organization to identify common issues and non-compliance to be captured and resolved in a cost-effective manner and applied to future projects. M&S Consulting PMaaS will assess multiple risk factors to determine what aspects of a project are in trouble and recommendations to turn it around.

M&A Integration

Mergers and acquisitions is an important business strategy that costs a lot of time and money. This investment is also true for the integration of the companies involved. M&S Consulting PMaaS offers proven strategies and expertise in integrating processes, technology platforms, and infrastructures in order to begin realizing the financial and operational benefits of the M&A activities.
