Most organisations are constantly looking for ways to cut costs, improve performance, increase productivity and provide a better service.
Every day, new projects and initiatives are suggested, but a lot of these projects are simply shelved, start off on the wrong foot or get lost along the way. This is because most organisations take on so much change that they simply do not have enough people with the appropriate breadth of skills and depth of delivery experience to go around. Prioritising projects to allocate the right resources is a complex challenge and needs projects to be scoped evaluated and managed differently.
We have managed and supported the delivery of major organisational business change. We help our clients shape their projects and programmes around the outcomes they want and need to achieve. We do this at the outset and partway through the project lifecycle to ensure that the project meets the organisation's strategic vision and contributes not only to one particular business area but contributes to the success of the business as a whole.
Previous projects have included SAP/Oracle systems implementations and migrations, PPI (Payment protection insurance), a major transformation project for a bank including the implementation of 4 new products, managing the Gloucester 2007 floods – please see our previous projects page for more details.
We are experienced with the application of structured methods, techniques and toolsets. But we are not afraid of thinking outside the box. We make excellent use of IT and our work is compliant with established standards including Prince2, ISO & Six Sigma.
