Part of my assignment, as a strategic marketing consultant, with Method has been to gain insight into their clients’ perception of Project Management and their perception of Method as a service provider. What struck me as amazing was the type of feedback I got from Method’s clients. I got responses like; “project management changed my life. It touches every aspect of my life and our organization”. Other responses were “project management is Method ” or “Project management is a way of life for our organization”.
Seeking to understand what lies beneath Method’s positive perception by their clients, I found that when Method started, ten years ago, there was hardly any understanding of what project management was all about. As a strategy, Method was Creating Project Management Culture.
Since its inception, Method has focused on spreading project management awareness. In 2003, Method pioneered its PMP® Training and Certification Program. Within a few years, Method graduates themselves became the champions of project management within their institutions, creating a culture that acknowledged the value and need for project management. This was a catalyst in creating a strategic shift towards more demand for project management consulting, geared towards building Enterprise Project Management (EPM) systems, and Project Management Offices (PMO). Method has helped clients implement EPM systems and setting up PMO’s, customized to their specific needs. Method EPM and PMO setups focus on sustainability, continuous improvement, and knowledge transfer to ensure maximum value for clients.
