PMLogic's 10th Birthday- a Message from the CEO

A Message from the CEO - James Bawtree


10 years ago, I started the PMLogic business with a dream: to give organisations and their Executives confidence that they CAN achieve their strategic objectives.

Early in my career, as a very driven project engineer and then later as a project and program management consultant and trainer wishing to climb the corporate ladder, I observed a pattern. I often saw many strategic plans beautifully crafted by a team of clearly very smart business executives, supported by equally smart consultants. The plans looked great and read well, but did not bear any resemblance to what was actually happening in the business executives’ organisation. I thought it odd there was always a disconnect. The strategic plan’s stated goals never seemed to align with the organisation’s practices or achievements and this became my purpose—to professionalise project management from strategy to delivery.

Looking back over the past 10 years, I can see how PMLogic has been carefully sculpted by the 50-some projects and programs and countless amazing people we’ve been involved with. So on our 10th birthday, I just want to say THANK YOU. It takes trust, dedication and informed decision-making to stick by us. I am proud of the good relationships we have fostered and continue to nurture, and that we collectively make up the fabric of the ever-evolving PMLogic story.

Our values have never been clearer and they continue to shape the way we do business:

  • Purpose: "Why?” is our greatest question. It helps us and our clients define their reason for undertaking any personal or professional pursuit.

  • People: We do people-centric work with empathy and inclusivity at the front of our minds.

  • Planet: Our work impacts the planet positively, whether that’s through a program we’re delivering, or through working toward being a carbon-neutral by 2025.

And we are so grateful to stride with confidence into our next decade knowing our mission has never changed since the beginning, even as the project/program management discipline continues to evolve... and that is: Empowering organisations to sustainably transform. In the spirit of transformation, 2020 has seen us practice what we preach. We have re-shaped our technology footprint to make sure we deliver the best service and give you the best quality industry information.

Now, at the beginning of 2021, we're so proud and excited to share that we’ve just launched...

A FRESH NEW WEBSITE!

The new website is just one step in the bigger picture, but an important one, as we feel it embodies the PMLogic personality, mission and values much better! We hope it’s not only a place you can find out more about us, but in return we provide genuine value in the content that’s available there.


Join us in our effort to make projects and programs more strategically-aligned, and their results more sustainable. I'd love for you to share your PMLogic story so that your colleagues and friends can benefit from what we have to offer! Show others why you TRUSTED PMLogic and why it was worth it!

To show our appreciation, we will be giving away 3 signed copies of The Strategy Implementation Gap book, by myself and Michael Young.

All you need to do is:

The lucky winners will be announced at the end of March.

We wish you all the best for an exciting 2021. Again, we would love to have you join us at our 10th Birthday Celebrations, on the 25th of March tomorrow night.

Sincerely,

James Bawtree

Chief Executive Officer
