With significant experience in project management consulting, we can apply our project management services to your technology implementation whether it’s related to an ERP system, document management, CRM, data tools, or other software. With a focus on leadership, communication, and outcomes, our team will work alongside you to bring about your desired results.

We specialize in a variety of project management areas including software selection, technology implementation, project assurance, and project turnaround.  

Project Management Planning

Through years of hands-on experience, KSMC has developed a comprehensive approach to project management based on PMBOK principles and our experience driving successful launches. This proprietary approach, which has been proven successful client after client, is meticulously built and adapted to meet each individual client’s needs and goals.

The key components of our project management approach include:

  • Collaborative Engagement. We foster collaboration within an organization by facilitating discussions and information sharing between departments and people.
  • Strategic Alignment. We spend time interviewing key leadership, reviewing internal documents, and evaluating current business plans.
  • Business Engagement. We conduct interviews, facilitate workshops, provide status updates, and iterate through feedback loops.
  • Independence and Objectivity. We ensure the business achieves its goals through a customized and tailored strategy that matches the needs of your organization.
  • Build Consensus and Buy-In. We build in feedback loops, and promote open communication and collaboration across all levels of stakeholders from technical to managerial, to executive staff.

Project managers at KSM Consulting specialize in bringing these components together to ensure your final project is implemented and adopted according to plan.

Essentials In Expert Project Management

One of the greatest challenges when it comes to updating a new piece of software or refining process and procedures is achieving successful adoption of this change.

That’s why, at KSM Consulting, we focus on so much more than simply putting the right technology into your hands. We work to make sure that your team is on board with the change that is about to affect them.

Not all end users will have an equal tolerance for change. That is why we believe change management is a cornerstone to great project management. By incorporating change management in project management, we drive to success as user adoption, not simply completion of a project or integration of software.

We understand that the difference is in the details. By devoting time to gaining a thorough understanding of your people, processes, and technology, our team can support your organization’s success.

Project Deliverables and Process Check-Ins

A critical-to-success factor is the ability to be flexible and adapt during the course of a project – ironing out problems encountered along the way. Because of this, KSM Consulting is committed to providing deliverables throughout a project that provide insight into progress.

Before a project begins, we evaluate which deliverables will be effective in driving a project toward success and tailor them to the project at hand. By providing and collaborating on deliverables throughout a project, we ensure parties are held accountable and that the project is tracking toward successful completion.
