Why Use Our PMaaS for Your Company
According to Project Management Institute (PMI), 50% of businesses that undervalue project management register an average of 50% more of their projects outrightly failing. Strategic project management is fundamental to any business, mostly since individuals and businesses want to achieve faster and cheaper results.
It serves a clear need as businesses encounter issues when there are more projects than time to accomplish them. Most businesses have project managers under their payroll. However, in most cases, these managers’ methodologies aren’t based on results but on activities. Gibson Group PMaaS manages your project to the ultimate objective instead of to an individual task result.
Our PMaaS adds a layer that improves effectiveness via enhanced accountability, improved communication and processes, and unrivaled expertise. Additionally, our PMaaS adds an independent voice and perspective.
Using Project Management as a Service to Reduce Costs
Businesses have become accustomed to utilizing managed services in most IT functions such as conducting network management, running email, and other tasks. Most of these tasks tend to be reasonably stable but elemental operations.
Unfortunately, hiring an in-house management team to streamline this process proves highly costly. Additionally, when outside a business’ core competency, for example, startups starting to scale, providing that expertise in-house may require heavy investment in the necessary resources, tools, procedures, and processes.
A managed service, such as Gibson Group’s PMaaS, is an alternative, fresh way to mobilize flexible programs, projects, and change management services. This model includes a partner managing all service delivery aspects, including recruitment, onboarding, and training to improve cost efficiency and improved organizational capability and simultaneously improve project implementation performance.
Your business won’t require a headcount on the books. More importantly, you enjoy the added advantage of our expertise in the services we deliver and get capacity and capability at your convenience. With our contract PMO managed service, we take on the responsibility of managing project performance.
Moreover, in most cases, using managed services suppliers allow you to pay less than you may have previously going gradually. This is because most pricing models are typically based on select services provided, complexity, and volume of the projects to be handled within the service.
Regardless, the key focus of project management as a service is more of a shift in mindset. You must assess how your business can go from project management from an operations-based approach with a process focus; to a client service-based approach with a value focus. Our project management as a service helps you save funds as a startup or developed business.
