“Successful projects are those that make business more profitable.”

Great projects require great project management and great business analysis. At Professional Project Services, we know that projects succeed when they have full executive support and excellent project requirements. We believe in practical, tailored approaches to meet the demands of each organization’s project. For us to meet these needs, we employ the best practices of project management and business analysis. We leverage our ability in stakeholder analysis and engagement, project planning, independent facilitation and business analysis to lead our clients to success.

Behind our skillset is 16 years of experience in numerous industries, including State government and Microsoft. We specialize in information technology projects with an emphasis on developing web-based solutions. We are confident in both short-term and long-term projects. We can also train teams and support project activities.

Taking charge of Professional Project Services is Vicki James, a 16-year veteran of successful project management and business analysis in both public and private industries, which include a 11-year term in governmental operations. She is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP), a certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP), a certified PMI Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA), and a Certified Scrum Master (CSM). Vicki has taken her skills to public and private organizations to support both Agile and traditional Waterfall type projects. For Vicki, organizational value is achieved through successful project management and business analysis. Vicki is a personable, knowledge and thorough leader who unlocks the potential for teams to achieve their goals.

Vicki does more than consult; she presented at five Project Management Institute North American Global Congresses and at numerous regional and local meetings. She is a contributor to The Complete Project Manager by Randall Euglund and Alfonso Bucero. She co-authored Strategies for Project Sponsorship with Peter Taylor and Ron Rosenhead and has recently published Leveraging Business Analysis for Project Success.  Vicki dedicates herself in staying current with industry trends and best practices to succeed in her work.

Vicki, and Professional Project Services, succeed at what we do best; our success rates exceed typical success rates because we understand and directly tackle the challenges of project management. We believe that great projects require great project management and great business analysis. We offer both, and we await our opportunity to lead your next great project.
