Our History

Global Project Management Group (GPMG) was founded in 1993 by James Klanke, PMP.  James began his consulting practice after serving many years as a project manager at AT&T Microelectronics. Over the past 24 years, GPMG has served many clients in a variety of industries with a wide variety of needs from implementation of Project Management Offices to management of large capital projects to providing training and mentoring to organizational leadership for management of projects and portfolios. GPMG remains a boutique consulting firm with a focus on successful client delivery and innovative solutions. While the focus has not changed much over the last 24 years, it has matured. Clients can no longer tolerate traditional project management, portfolio management, or strategic management processes. Clients require common sense flexible adaptable value-added approaches to all their problems. GPMG has led the way in much of the common sense value-added approaches constantly supplying clients with fresh ideas to improve ROI at all levels of the organization.
