IMA’s Business Mission:-

company working with clients who seek to remain competitive and achieve an
increase in the rate of delivery of new products and services. We
are dedicated solely to the delivery of project management education, training
Since 1992, IMA’s experienced
staff has trained and consulted with thousands of professionals utilizing a
variety of project management tools and techniques. Our consultants are either
PMI certified or have been involved in project management training and
consulting for a number of years. At our customers’ sites we offer in excess
of 22 different types of project management competency seminars and consulting
IMA helps clients achieve their
goals by implementing the concept of “Management
By Projects” to all initiatives and work activities.
To be successful and to obtain the highest return on investment on
project management requires the optimization of project management competencies
and supporting systems. Once this optimization is achieved, benefits arise from
the following characteristics of the project management system:
Consistency: A structured yet adaptive project management methodology,
tailored to meet the needs of the customer, becomes the recognized standard for
project management across the enterprise.
Predictability: The new project management environment and culture promotes
fast execution for the delivery of products and services, with results closely
matching the plan and stakeholder expectations.
Project management tools, techniques, templates and systems
are scaleable to fit the types and sizes of the projects being managed by the
organization. Scalability permits the elimination of unnecessary administrative
overhead burden on the project team, allowing the team to focus on activities
critical to success.
To achieve these benefits an organization’s project
management culture requires the following three discrete but interdependent
pillars to stand on:
practical and effective project management methodology that integrates the
client’s accepted organizational policies and experience with recognized
industry best practices.
2. Scalable automated tools that are used to manage (plan, track and report) project documentation, finances, and resource and task timelines.
3. Organizational systems including a Project Management
Office that performs the portfolio management function, provides project
management expertise for mission critical projects, and claims ownership for
continuous improvement of the project management methodology.
With Our Clients
While the concept of “Management By Projects” demands full understanding of
project management by the entire organization, the primary focus for project
ownership and leadership must remain with
the project manager and the project team.
To that end, IMA develops customer specific seminars
as part of an integrated project management certificate program designed to
strengthen and augment the skills and understanding of project management as a
methodology and a culture. We conduct a needs assessment with our customer prior
to the selection and delivery of our seminars. Seminar topics are designed to be
compatible with our client’s business processes and procedures.
An additional advantage: IMA’s seminars are
designed to comply with the Project Management Institute (PMI™) standards
defined in the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®), and to prepare
students for the PMI® Project Management Professional (PMP®)
