PMaaS: Access to project professionals, resources and tools at a flexible, affordable and predictable cost
Grow and transform your business.
Hummingbird’s Project Management as a Service can help you grow your business and prosper, by shouldering the heavy lift of new and ongoing projects leaving you more time to focus on running your business.
Every business needs to transform at regular intervals to survive. Delivering major programs or projects while maintaining day to day operations can be a challenge. Especially as teams are often already fully allocated on operational activities. Yet sustaining and growing your business depends on seamless and successful transformation.
Our Project Management as a Service (PMaaS) provides flexible, highly skilled project managers on demand and we take ownership for the successful delivery of your business project goals. This allows you to employee highly skilled and proven Project Managers when you need them. This could range from a highly skilled Project Manager for just a few days a month, right up to a team of dedicated, integrated and synchronized programme management team for the full duration of your program. Your turn our services on and off to suit your needs.
As a client you have full access to our tools and templates in order to get your projects stood up and delivered efficiently, consistently and on time. We can even handle the change management side of your key projects by engaging our change consultants and solutions.
How we can help.
Global program to national and local project management
We have a proven record in successfully delivering global programs as well as more national or local projects.
We believe there are three main characteristics to great program and project managers; taking ownership, staying on point and having the consistent drive to see the project through to a successful conclusion.
All our project resources are carefully selected to ensure they have the necessary skills and knowledge for each project, as well as these all-important inherent characteristics.
Our cost model is based up on a rate card determined by the skillset of the project managers required, and your ongoing and future commitment. Find out more about our methods of working and our rates by contacting us.
Standing up a world class PMO
Efficiencies and consistency in projects, teams and leaders are just some of the advantages of following a well defined, proven and trusted process, regardless of the methodology.
While every organisation is different, key concepts of a well run Project Management Office (PMO) remain the same. By understanding your business and organisation structure, we can build a bespoke PMO with supporting processes and templates optimised for you.
We have a number of project templates perfected over time to get you off to a flying start.
Already have a PMO but looking for improvements? We can review, evaluate and implement changes to your existing processes and PMO for greater overall project and team successes.
We can also take ownership of your PMO and projects, giving you the opportunity to flex your team up and down as your need for project management ebbs and flows.
Watch your team members grow and flourish, in skills and confidence, with some corporate project management mentoring,
We have a wealth of experience and skills, not to mention battle scars too, that we can share with your team by way of mentoring.
By adopting this approach you can invest in key talent within your organisation who have a desire to move into project management or develop their existing skills. A natural by-product of this investment is greater success in the delivery of your key projects and improvements in attrition.

Mantras we work by…
grace under pressure, kiddo
Sometimes, when driving projects home, we face challenges. Problems to solve, difficult situations to overcome and yes, even challenging people to collaborate with. ‘Grace under pressure, Kiddo’ reminds us to stay calm and navigate stormy seas with cool, calm logic and like the Hummingbird, forever hold our grace.
the devil really is in the detail
Great project managers have the innate ability to understand and execute the strategy, orchestrate the moving parts of a program and know when to dive right into the detail, when planning or troubleshooting, and when to surface again.
how do you know how to get there, if you don’t know where you are going
Having a clearly defined vision and mission statement, with well defined objectives are critical for any project and need to be well defined, understood and communicated at the start of any project undertaking.
the art of brevity is grossly under appreciated
If a picture is worth a thousand words, well structured and concise project messaging is priceless!
