Stone Mountain, GA (PRWEB) May 10, 2008
If the success or failure of a project is dependent on how well a project is managed, is it safe to assume that hiring a consultant from a project management firm can increase your odds of success? According to the companies that hire them, the answer is uncertain unless that project management firm employs consultants with substantial work experience, proven project management skills, and the credentials needed to take a client's project from vision to success.
Of the credentials available to project management consultants, one of the most notable is the Project Management Professional (PMP®). Administered by the Project Management Institute (PMI), the PMP is a globally recognized certification that maintains ISO 9001 certification in Quality Management Systems. To receive PMP accreditation, individuals must demonstrate an expert level of project management skills through rigorous education, professional experience, and examination. What is the payoff when project management firms employ PMI-certified consultants? An increased demand by companies looking to hire the best in the field.
One firm that employs PMPs is PMAlliance, Inc. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, PMAlliance was founded by three successful project management consultants; Thomas Stevens, William Wilson, and Kevin Berry. Together, they bring more than sixty years of Project Management Consulting experience to the business. PMAlliance provides training, consulting, and project management office development for a diverse global clientele. Every consultant at PMAlliance has received their project management certification through PMI. Ranked as the sixth fastest growing private consulting company by Inc. Magazine in their inaugural release of the Inc. 5,000. PMAlliance is highly successful and in great demand by companies needing top Project Management consulting talent in order to maintain their competitive edge.
"These companies are the elite," cites Inc. magazine as they announced the Inc. 5,000 results. Together, they produced $194 billion in 2006 revenue, about 1.5 percent of the national gross domestic product, employed more than 900,000 people and had more revenue (38.9 billion) than the average company on this year's Inc. 500 list-($34.4 million).
"Being acknowledged by Inc. Magazine is a testament to the hard work, impressive experience, and professionalism of our consultants," says Troy McKnight, a partner at PMAlliance. "It is also a testament to the value they provide directly to our clients."
Providing unparalleled value to their clients has been a key factor in PMAlliance's impressive three-year growth of 499.9%. It has also resulted in the need to expand their offices from Peoria, Chicago, and Atlanta to multiple locations in the US and the UK. With today's companies recognizing that late deliverables, uncontrolled spending, and substandard results can knock them out of the competition for customers and business, the need for highly qualified project management consultants will continue to grow and firms like PMAlliance will be well positioned to capitalize on this ever-expanding market.
