Project Management Consulting at Pcubed

I've started working at Pcubed in their San Francisco office. You can now officially put me in the category of Project Management Consultant. With almost a whole two weeks under my belt I'm noticing a few differences between being an internal or "captive" consultant in a staff position and being an external consultant. Very briefly they are:

  • Introductions are more frequent and elaborate.
  • You are surrounded by people who understand the same things you do.
  • The client businesses are diverse, their problems are strangely familiar...
  • I spend more time on the telephone.

So far I'm really enjoying meeting clients and potential clients. They offer an endless stream of things to think about.

If you are in need of any help getting project management practices under control feel free to email me at: jack AT zo-d.com and we will see what can be done.
