McCune Management Consulting, LLC

Project Management

Successful management consulting projects utilizing cross-functional teams to implement business process change, system implementation, or outsource implementation require very strong project management skills: planning, organization, communication, and accomplishing tasks through other people.

Program Management Office

Large, complicated initiatives with multiple teams assessing or implementing change typically require central coordination. A Program Management Office (PMO) provides central coordination, communication, issue escalation, decision support, project management resources, resource allocation, budget approval etc. for multiple active projects.
