The PMBOK® from the Project Management Institute (PMI) captures knowledge from the project management profession that is “generally recognised as best practice”. Interpreting this knowledge into a real approach or methodology that meets the needs of your business and its customers is the challenge you face.

Developing a scalable methodology that demonstrates the professionalism and control of your company, whilst not becoming a hindrance to the achievement of the project goal, is fundamental to your success.

This presentation explores the knowledge areas of PMBOK®, identifying the components that contribute to a scalable approach to delivery, and which integrate the sales and support functions of your business.

Effective transformation of the knowledge into a practical approach will enable you to improve customer relationships and satisfaction.

Peter Gammon, Senior Consultant at Contact to ContRact, has over sixteen years’ experience of the IT and technology industry in both the ERP and CRM sectors. His special areas of expertise are professional services delivery, operations and customer service. His management record covers all stages of the business cycle including strategic planning, product development, account management, people management, customer service, consultancy and project management.
