PATRICE EMBRY

FIXER of projects and process

WHO I AM

I'm a digital project manager and certified ScrumMaster.  

I've been managing projects and teams for 20 years, and in that time, I've learned a lot and I've seen a lot.  I bring that experience to each project I manage and each client I service. 

MY PHILOSOPHY

Learn the team.  Understand the project.  Fix what needs fixing.  

Project management isn't just getting projects from start to launch on time and on budget.  It's about understanding the end goal and figuring out the best, most efficient, and smartest way to get there.  I believe in communication at all levels.  With humor and empathy, I guide the team and the project to a safe and happy landing.

READ THE LATEST: 

Stop normalizing failure

I talk about the broken estimating process many agencies are using, and give actionable advice on how to fix it.

A good project manager doesn’t say ‘yes’ or ‘no’, they give options and consequences. This approach helps clients see cause and effect, and brings them into the realm of accountability.

PERSONALIZED, AFFORDABLE, EFFECTIVE

WHY PATRICE?

20 years' experience wrangling all types of projects, agency + corporate experience, a natural teacher, an engaging manner that puts people right at ease.  I use humor, empathy, and intuition to connect with people and bring out their best.  Plus, I've been in some pretty crazy PM situations - dysfunctional offices, untenable project parameters, kooky clients, you name it - so I bring an extremely rounded view to the table.

Project management training

Maybe you've got a group of Project Managers who need some mentoring, or maybe you're trying to kick-start your new PM group's entrance into your workflow.  Whatever your PM training needs are, I can help.  I specialize in small-group, targeted, tailored trainings.  I listen to your needs, ask questions about your team, and come up with a strategy that can include in-person training sessions, lunch-and-learn series, train-the-trainer sessions, and phone/email/slack aftercare.

Process Analysis

Is your current process ineffective or inefficient?  Do you find yourself getting projects done, but knowing it could have been done in a more structured way?  Do you have trouble understanding your resourcing or tool needs?  I can help!  By performing process analyses for clients, I can pinpoint places where a process tweak could allow your teams to be more effective and efficient.  Skills gap analyses can help make sure that the people on your team have the expertise you need to keep your agency moving.  Priced by engagement, or purchase a block of time to use as needed.
