Coaching & Mentoring Services

Our portfolio, program and project level coaches and mentors actively participate within initiatives to ensure good standards are being both adopted and practiced and improve internal delivery and assurance capability.

We also provide the training and tools to support a comfortable transition when deploying new processes, practices, and templates. This type of personalised knowledge transfer from highly experienced consultants, with over 20-years frontline experience, encourages the development of internal and localised competencies more easily, whilst continuing to provide guided learning and hands-on practice.

How can our coaching and mentoring improve delivery outcomes?

1
Delivered on-the-job, with fast and sustainable results

Mentors and coaching provide a fast way to encourage consistent and sustainable practices on-the-job. The PM Solutions Australia mentors and coaches work closely with project managers and project teams to build project management capability and competency, whilst supporting improved delivery and outcomes of projects.

Delivered by industry leading and hands-on practitioners

The PM Solutions Australia mentors are coaches not simply trainers, nor are they theory-based project persons, our mentors and coaches are highly skilled, seasoned and ‘hands-on’ project management professionals, who have delivered some of Australia’s largest projects and programs across technology, business transformation, and change, compliance, and risk, government and vast range of specialised fields and disciplines.  As an AXELOS Consulting Partner, the PM Solutions Australia mentors and coaches are AXELOS accredited across some of the world’s leading best practices in portfolio, program and project management, service management, risk management, security management, and enterprise agility.

Value adding to organisations through our services

Through our coaching and mentoring, we are also able to:

  • Back-fill projects, as we are familiar with specific projects, and can supplement a project manager for extended periods of time, during an unexpected absence of project or program managers, providing continuity and no downtime or impacts on project time lines
  • Conduct project assurance, including project health checks to identify issues in a timely manner and assist project managers and project owners in taking appropriate corrective actions, where necessary
