A different type of project management consultancy

About Build Project Management App

Hi there! Anna here, I am Self-PMA’s founder.

While working on high-end/ultra-luxury projects, people who knew about my work and my firm would ask if I could give them advice for their small build or recommend a project manager within their budget.

In my spare time, between my full-time job and PhD research, I would try to help as many people who would come to me for advice and ‘quick’ services.

But with limited time, I wondered if it wouldn’t be more productive to direct people to a website or app that would offer honest advice on their project.

I couldn’t find anything like that in the market.

I created Self-PMA to empower homeowners to manage their projects.

What was needed was an app simple enough for non-specialised people to self-manage their projects.

But an app was not enough; continuous support from qualified project managers was also needed.

When people came to me, they were not just looking for a tool, but also for honest, human advice to help them with their build.

I worked on the ideas, concepts, model, and values of a project management consultancy firm that would solely focus on small projects.

With most project management firms focusing on being appointed to bigger and more profitable projects, we focus on the homeowners dreaming of a bigger kitchen, having an extension, renovating their home, creating a basement, converting a barn, or self-building their family home. We focus on families with a limited budget to spend on an independent site supervisor or a paid per hour project manager.

In order to assist as a many small project as possible, I created Self-Project Management App which allows home owners and self-builders to control and self-manage their projects.

Customisable templates are available to manage budget, timeline and tasks. The key difference between Self-PMA and other project management tools is that each project has an allocated project manager ready to step in at any point in the project ready to assist.

Homeowners are able to request one-off services as needed without the need for a consultancy contract and without receiving a large bill for project management fees.

Self-PMA allows anyone to take the project manager role.

The idea is simple, you will manage your project with the tools and platform that we offer and if at any point you need help, we are here.
