Project Management Coaching

A lot of business owners and entrepreneurs struggle with time, cost and performance. The end result of this often ends in failure to realise business goals and 95% of small business fail in the first five years.

However it needn’t be that way. You can have:

  • Clarity on what you need to do
  • Understand who you need to work with
  • Be clear on timelines to increase efficiency and productivity
  • Be clever with costs
  • Avoid failure in realising business goals and know what to expect
  • Create an action plan to keep you and your people accountable

Do you wish to work privately with me? Places are very limited and I will speak to you for a FREE 20 minute consultation to see whether we will be a good fit for each other, the commitment to follow through with the coaching is understood, and achieving your business goals.

My style of coaching is structured yet friendly and flexible in nature.

I am university qualified in project management and have a Graduate Diploma of Project Management from Curtin Univerity.  I am a member of the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM).  I have worked with corporations such as Chevron, Thales, Saab, BHP Billiton and Optus to implement project management and project controls within their businesses. For the last 15 years I have worked with family business to mining and defence giants. No matter the type or size of the business the approach to realising business goals is the same when using project management, and I will teach you how to apply the same principles within your business.

I have two coaching packages to offer you, the SME Stabiliser Package and the Entrepreneur Kick Starter Package. Both of these packages are based on EmineoHub’s unique Project Renegade framework.

SME Stabilise Package

This package is designed for the small business owner that is doing at least $300k per year in revenue who is seeing growth in their business. With growth comes the need to stabilise the business by creating a solid foundation for you and your team to operate within day to day operations. Doing this comes about by putting systems in place to create a healthy work/life balance for you and your team, the opportunity for your team to contribute to how your business can best operate, and embedding a routine so you and your employees know what is expected of each other.

Putting systems in to place is best done as a project. The reason for this is that you want a beginning and end date to stabilise your business. Otherwise it’s a constant state of change that leads to stress and unfortunately can result in low staff morale or resignations.

This package is over three months. We will start with a two hour strategy session and take a good, solid exploration of what is working for you and what isn’t. We will then prioritise what to work on. Before the session, you will be sent a questionnaire so I’m prepared with ideas to see if they resonate with you.

In the first month we will put together:

  • A project management plan that clarifies exactly what you need to do to put systems in place. This is your action plan
  • A timeline of achieving this and who will be working on what
  • A budget that identifies any additional expenses such as software costs or engaging temporary staff
  • A risk management plan to identify what can go wrong, the likelihood of it occurring and what the consequences will be. We will do an online risk management session.

In the second month, we will check in with each other twice a month for an hour each time, to implement your project within your business and work through any issues that arise. We will discuss how to:

  • Communicate the change to staff
  • Get staff engagement in your project with their ‘buy in’ so you have their full support
  • Put in to place Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) using the SMART* methodology
  • Map this out and make sure it’s clear to you and your team as every business different

*Smart, Measurable, Agreed upon, Realistic, Time-driven

During the third month we will check in with each other twice a month for an hour each time to see how your project is performing. We will discuss:

  • How your team are engaging with the project and what needs to change
  • How you are progressing with your timelines, KPI’s and what adjustments need to be made to keep your project on track
  • How your budget is going and make any adjustments to costs
  • Check in with your risk management plan to see if any of your risks are going to eventuate and how they can be reduced in occurring

By this stage you should be on your way but if you would like monthly coaching sessions to keep the momentum going then we can certainly organise this.

In addition to the above, you will receive:

  • A project pack with all the templates you and your team need so you can get going
  • Software subscription to set up, implement and monitor your project and we will work from this. During the package if you need any assistance I can have a look at your project and see what’s happening.
  • A one hour emergency coaching session that you can use at any time during the three months if you get stuck with anything.

It is important to note that I will be coaching you through this and not consulting to you (eg doing the work). The volume, pace of the work and results are ultimately up to you.

The investment of this package is $3000 + GST payable upfront.

Entrepreneurial Kickstarter Package

For the Entrepreneurial genius that wants to be smart at getting to market and hitting a win from the beginning, this package will get things going quickly.

This is a one month package. We will kick off with a two hour online strategy session, discuss your vision for your business and your goals, and drill down in to what is working for you and what your challenges are. From there we will take a holistic view of what needs to be done, work out how we can overcome your challenges, and identify how project management will enable you to realise your business vision and goals. We will have two one hour sessions over the course of the month to implement your strategy.

Be warned, you will have work to do between sessions but you want your monies worth right? By the end of your Kickstarter package you will have:

  1. A project management plan that supports you meeting your vision and goals
  2. A high level timeline so you know what to do and when to maximize your efficiency
  3. A high level budget so you know what you are spending and when to make that dollar go as far as possible
  4. An understanding of what can go wrong in realizing your vision and goals and how you can navigate your way through any issues that arise to get back on top (you can also use this in your personal life)

On top of this you will also receive a project management pack with all the templates you need to implement project management within your business.

It is important to note that I will be coaching you through this and not consulting to you (eg doing the work). The volume, pace of the work and results are ultimately up to you.

The investment in this package is $650 + GST.
