ACCLAIM implementations typically take about six months, and are designed for your organization to own and manage the solution with the necessary discipline and maturity. Often times, clients also need some reach-back support on a limited, ad-hoc basis to pose questions, get advice for overcoming challenges that arise, and obtain some coaching and mentoring. We are of course happy to continue helping in this manner, if beneficial to you.
Your organization does not need an army of PMP-certified project managers, or any other pre-requisites for that matter. Some of the most dramatic successes come from client organizations with no prior project-management or portfolio-management experience, as they have fewer “old rules” to discard before adopting the new rules that ACCLAIM brings.
