Project Management Services that Make You Stand Out
Organizations that can reliably deliver projects on time, on budget, without surprises, gain a significant advantage over their competitors. This is the case whether the project is internal (e.g., launching a new product or service translating into faster time to market with fewer risks) or external (e.g., developing a product or service for a client translating into happy clients, fast processing of invoices, repeat business, and client referrals).
We get the big picture, and that’s why we provide a variety of services—all geared to take your projects (and your project managers) to the next level. We offer the following four categories of services to meet your needs:
Our project management consulting services are built around your most pivotal needs. From planning to staffing to risk management to process improvement and more, we can help take your project management capability to the highest level of maturity. Learn more >>
Though technically a part of our project consulting practice, we separate out project recovery services because this is a high-need area as documented by the sobering statistics around troubled projects. We’ve saved our clients millions of dollars by putting their projects back on solid ground. Our mature project recovery methodology is rooted in industry best practices and our decades of real-world experience. Learn more >>
We offer training, coaching and mentoring to take your team’s project delivery capability to the next level. From PMI exam prep to teaching advanced skills, we lead the way in project management training. Our training is focused and hard-hitting. We don’t offer all the bells and whistles. Instead, we provide practical training in just the key topics that will make the most difference. Learn more >>
We provide agile training courses as well as agile coaching to help teams adopt agile methodologies, or, for established agile teams, we can help take your methodologies to the next level of maturity. Our process includes a series of iterations to take you from learning key concepts to side-by-side coaching to back-of-room observation and critiques to get you functioning as a successful self-managing agile team.

Whether we are leading a business strategy overhaul, pressure testing strategic initiatives, identifying corporate risks or evaluating and executing an operational plan, we bring to bear our decades of experience. We are adept at quickly grasping a situation and applying a practical approach to attack mission-critical issues and get results. Learn more >>
“Because of the value RefineM brought to Evangel University, there was clear value in bringing the firm to Teen Challenge USA. We had looming deadlines, eight projects and a team who lacked project management experience. RefineM provided project management leadership and focused our resources to successfully deliver the projects on time.”
—Gary Blackard, CIO, Evangel University and Board of Directors, Teen Challenge USA
On a waterfall project, the bulk of the value is delivered at the end of the project. On an agile project, value is delivered incrementally through iterative cycles with the highest-value items prioritized, increasing customer satisfaction. Backlogs serve as the mechanism for clarifying priority on projects carried out by agile teams, allowing them to put the customer’s highest priorities first. How can waterfall teams achieve a similar effect?
