The Iceni Group is a small business consulting firm that specializes in Corporate and Individual Project enhancements. We offer several services, including a new option of on-the-job training that provides training and advice throughout a project. Think of the on-the-job training as a PMP crash course, focusing on real-life, while you will still need to learn the PMI vocabulary and take the test to become a PMP, the hours you spend on your current project do count against PMI qualifying hours.
At the Iceni Group, our focus is on the passion for engineering and to make sure our clients get the best service. While we focus on Program/Project Management, internal (inside your company) or external (part of a team of contractors) we are also available as a second pair of eyes on a problem, sound-boarding, dealing with difficult people, or if you just want to rant in a private setting.
Every Client is treated with respect and privacy in our work with your company. We do not expose any ongoing work to anyone, but you and will not use you as a reference without your permission. We instead depend on your satisfaction with our work and you passing on our value to others.
