Leveraging expertise in PMI Project Portfolio Management and Scaled Agile Framework Lean Portfolio Management, we use a systemic approach to assist organizations in implementing their organizational strategies through traditional and agile programs and projects.
The areas of focus in Project Portfolio and Lean Portfolio Management and our approach include:

Considering the complexity of today's business environment, organizations may struggle effectively manage large strategic initiatives. Using Agile and Waterfall Program Management frameworks, we help clients effectively implement large-scaled initiatives to accomplish their strategic objectives and realized sustained benefits.
After conducting a comprehensive organization assessment, we propose a customized and data-driven approach to accomplish the organization's program(s) using components of the PMI Program Management Professions (PgMP) and Scaled Agile Frameworks; as well as, Organizational Change Management (OCM).
Organizations implement their vision and strategies through projects. To successfully manage these projects, organizations require expertise in Agile, Waterfall, or Hybrid frameworks. But which one fits best for your organization and the project?
Our team will guide you through the process of selecting and implementing the most suitable approach based on our organizational needs and priorities.
Organizations launch programs and projects to bring about changes needed to successfully implement their strategic objectives and stay competitive. Managing and excelling at change - becoming change-agile - is critical for your organization's ability to deliver on its near-term and long-term goals and objectives.
In addition to helping your organization effectively manage your current strategic change initiatives, our team will assist your organization with developing internal change capabilities and establishing a strategic framework to effectively lead and manage change initiatives in the future.
Effective Organizational Change Management (OCM) requires a structured systemic, yet flexible, approach to effectively engages people in the process of change. Using a structured OCM methodology (e.g., Prosci, ACMP standards), key insights from the field of psychology, systems thinking, and the theory of complexity, our team helps organizations develop, implement, track and measure the effectiveness of change strategies. We will train your leads and teams to understand the fundamentals of strategic Organizational Change Management (focusing on processes and people) equipping them with the knowledge and skills to effectively guide change initiatives in your organization in the future.
People determine outcomes, not systems and processes. Long-term success requires an organizational culture that promotes foresight thinking, accountability, Emotional Intelligence, and servant leadership.
How does your organization create a culture that encourages continuous learning, innovation, and professional development of your people?
Developing a strong team requires an awareness about the interpersonal dynamics, personality traits, and diverse cognitive styles of its members. Conducting assessments that can generate such knowledge will help your organization address the areas of growth and foster greater cohesion among the team members.
Using scientifically-validated and practical assessment tools, we can help your team gain a better understanding of their individual, relational, and cognitive styles. Gaining this knowledge can enable your team to develop greater tolerance toward different personality and engagement styles and foster a greater level of collaboration and innovation in your organization.
Leaning Forward will support your organization's efforts in creating a safe and thriving work environment through delivering customized workshops that focus on optimizing individuals’ emotional and psychological potential - critical for fostering change-resilience and agility.
Drawing from the fields of psychology and neuroscience, we will equip your team with concrete strategies to develop self-awareness, psychological flexibility, and emotional intelligence with an overall goal of increasing the individual and organizational well-being and productivity.
