Global Business Management Consultants (GBMC)

Founded in 1985 and specializing in global project management training and consulting GBMC has become one of the most respected project management consulting firms. GBMC’s experienced consultants conduct organizational development, management training and consulting in project management in 50 countries and in 14 languages throughout Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas.

GBMC works with top management at leading organizations in tackling their most difficult and unique organizational development challenges. GBMC’s consultants then design and structure appropriate consulting or project management training addressing those specific needs at each level of the organization. This can be as basic as introducing project management tools and techniques to new managers, or as complex as assisting a company’s transition into a true project-based company. This emphasis on Global Project Management, that is, consistent, cross-functional project management application at all levels of the organization on a global basis, is GBMC’s speciality. GBMC’s international corporate policy to customize its programs at no additional cost to the client further demonstrates its commitment to professionalism and customer satisfaction

Since 1986, GBMC has worked with NASA’s Academy for Program and Project Leadership (APPL) and has been an integral part of its Program and Project Management Initiative (PPMI). GBMC’s Fundamentals of Project Management and The Art of Project Management remains basic elements for the NASA-wide training.
