EPM Strategy specializes in Project, Program and Portfolio Management. Knowing that technology is often linked to Project, Program and Portfolio Management, we concentrate on Microsoft Project. To maintain a high level of quality and to work with others that have different business specialties we have partnered with other high quality known organizations to help us serve you better.
EPM Strategy is proud to partner with the following organizations.
As an organization made up of individuals that have gained their PMP (Project Management Professional), we are very involved with the PMI (Project Management Institute) at both the national and local level. We participate in the local PMI Chapter as well as with the national organization.
EPM Strategy is an active participant with the Project Management Institute (PMI) . We have gained the status of Registered Consultant Provider with PMI and we can be found in the PMI Consultant Registry. This is a designation bestowed on organizations that are professional consulting firms with knowledge and experience in the specialized area of assisting organizations to improve their practice of project, program and/or portfolio management. The areas these firms focus on also include the supporting environment and necessary leadership that enables projects and programs to accelerate the implementation of an organizations’ strategy and the achievement of business results.
As an organization that provides training to clients we partnered with an organization that has obtained the Project Management Institute’s Registered Education Provider (REP). This means that in some cases, we meet the stringent requirements established by PMI and can deliver Professional Development Units (PDUs) for continuing education credit. This qualifies us to offer training in project management and issue professional development units (PDUs) to meet the continuing education requirements needed by PMI credential holders. To earn the R.E.P. designation, a provider must meet or exceed rigorous standards for quality and effectiveness as defined by PMI.
