Who Is Kolme Group and What is Kolme Univeristy
Hi! I’m Kim Essendrup, one of the founders of Kolme Group and co-host of the Project Management Happy Hour podcast. At Kolme Group, we’re really proud to be a Preferred Implementation Partner for the Planview AdaptiveWork Project and Portfolio management software solution platform.
And that partnership is no accident!
My partners and I started out on the technical track many years ago. And over time, we made the jump into project management, implementing business automation tools for Enterprises. We moved into program and PMO leadership and, most recently, to building, fixing, and optimizing Project delivery organizations.
During that journey, I personally found myself building a new PMO for a pan-European services organization. One of my first priorities was selecting and implementing a PPM solution that could handle our sophisticated organizational structure and complex financial requirements – and do it across 11 countries and seven currencies, and three different business practices – but it still had to be easy enough for all types of users to work in daily.
We chose to implement the Planview AdaptiveWork PPM solution and it was a complete game changer for our organization.
We had a single place to manage all our delivery, forecast projects, and manage resources. Our organization had a clear picture of our projects and resources in real-time for the first time. It worked so well that we increased our billable utilization by 20%!
I was SO impressed with AdaptiveWork that with a colleague, Matt Henderson – then later Drew Middleton, we founded Kolme Group and partnered with Planview AdaptiveWork to help other organizations enjoy the same success we had found with AdaptiveWork.
Over the years, we’ve grown Kolme Group with the best and brightest Planview AdaptiveWork, Project Management, Change Management, and Instructional Design experts we could find so we could be the consulting firm we wish we had when we were running a PMO.
Now, one of the great strengths of Plaview AdaptiveWork is its ability to be uniquely configured to support your specific business processes, top to bottom, for every department. While having a tool this powerful is a huge asset, it also means that there is a LOT to learn about its capabilities and how to shape it for your organization.
Fortunately, we have a team of experts ready to help you succeed with Plaview AdaptiveWork. And now, it will be easier to become a Master Configuration Administrator. You can start your learning journey with the Kolme Group’s Configuration Masterclasses for the Planview AdaptiveWork series powered by Kolme University!
