All project management consulting firms are not equal.
IPM is not confined by the boundaries of industry or functional areas. In fact, our key differentiators set us apart regardless of project type.
At IPM, we don’t hand you a plan and walk away. Our professional project management consultants work on-site and are committed to the success of your most complex projects. We seamlessly integrate into your teams and have the business acumen required to ensure your project goals align with your company’s strategy.
We take on your initiatives and drive your projects, allowing you to focus your time and energy where they’re needed most. Our objective leaders ask the tough questions to keep your organization progressing. We lead your projects and your teams.
Knowledge & Insight
We know project management. We helped shape the field of project management consulting more than 25 years ago. The majority of our project management consultants are PMP-certified and many are Six Sigma certified. We don’t rest on our laurels. Our employees receive ongoing training and attend industry conferences to keep them abreast of evolving best practices.
We can help you meet critical goals that impact your bottom line. We’ve cut timelines in half, salvaged strategic alliances on the brink of collapse, and delivered 400% ROI on our services.
When you entrust your project to us, you become the beneficiary of knowledge accumulated from 3,500+ projects across more than 300 clients. Our experience not only built the foundation for our current practices, but enables us to continually hone our methodologies.
Successful completion of your project demands agile delivery of processes aligned with your business strategy. At IPM, we approach every project with a fresh, objective perspective to meet the needs of your project — and your company. After we're gone, you'll have processes and tools to keep things running smoothly.
Create big-picture strategy
IPM's first step is to identify the problem you face and define the vision for a solution. This process is critical to ensure all team members share a common understanding of the project and agree upon its specific goals.
Define project Scope
Together we define your beginning and end points. We analyze options; develop resources, time, and cost estimates; and agree on deliverables, of which help prevent costly scope creep.
Develop business justification
Few businesses invest without considering their return. IPM works proactively with you to document your project's value, from cost savings to increased sales to quicker turnaround.
Design robust plans and schedules
IPM develops comprehensive plans that serve as a roadmap for your entire project. These plans link interdependent activities and personnel, internally and across third parties. Such precise input enables us to coordinate interconnections and identify bottlenecks or other obstacles that need to be addressed.
To avoid "fighting fires", IPM identifies potential project risks early on. We then quantify the magnitude and likelihood of your risks and determine how to prevent or quickly respond to them.
Drive plan execution
The best-laid plans mean nothing if on-the-ground execution falls short. This is especially so the more complex the project and varied the stakeholders. Our project leaders work on-site and accept direct responsibility for managing schedules and budgets, proactively tracking and resolving issues, and capturing project metrics.
IPM develops a formalized communications structure that defines who needs to know what and when, and creates project-specific channels for sharing information. Transparency is key. The team then can agree upon goals, raise and resolve issues, and become a cohesive group across functions and facilities.
Build team unity
IPM professionals use well-honed facilitation skills to work through conflict and political pressures to reach mutual decisions in support of project goals. As an objective third party with no agenda of its own, IPM can serve to bring disparate individuals and teams to consensus.

Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Integrated Project Management Company (Burr Ridge, IL).
First contact was a face-to-face informational interview with HR, followed by an HR phone screen. There was also an online "personality test" with other screening questions before two in-person interviews in the Chicago office with a Director and Managing Director. The next round consisted of meetings with the CFO and COO in Chicago along with a panel interview that also included a prepared presentation. The last step was a final call with the CEO since he wasn't in the office during the second interview session.
