Project Management Services

We offer short, targeted engagements directed at specific project mangement issues. (We are not a “body shop”.) Our aim is always to effect a knowledge transfer so that the maturity and capability of our clients is incrementally improved.

Problems with projects or programs? We’re here to help.

Typical client issues include:

  • No consistent practices
  • A culture of missed deadlines
  • Inexperience project managers
  • Conflicting priorities
  • Constantly changing scope
  • Risks not managed
  • No documentation
  • Unclear plans and deliverables
  • Poor reporting to management
  • Responsibilities and accountabilities unclear

Adaptive Frameworks can assess a single project or the project environment in general, provide recommendations on remedial action and assist you in implementing these.

  • If you have a major strategic project about to commence, then we will help you ensure it gets off to a good start and stays on track.
  • If your project has gone off the rails, we will help prevent the train wreck.
  • If you have a train wreck, we will perform a salvage operation.

In all these cases we will be working with your own staff in a collaborative way to improve outcomes and establish effective, efficient processes for moving forward and maintaining momentum.

Coaching and Mentoring

Adaptive Frameworks have project management professionals with decades of experience across different business environments who are able to provide guidance on a casual or part-time basis. In this way your own staff can be developed into capable project managers with the assurance that the project will be well managed while they learn. This is a very cost effective method in which the skills and experience of staff can be honed on the job.

  • Intended for occasional use of short duration. No minimum time requirement
