Get set up for success

Are you an operational manager who has been appointed to manage a strategic programme?

Are you fine with the business knowledge, but feel a bit out of your depth with project and programme management?

Then let us take care of the heavy lifting for you, and set you up with firm foundations based on established project management techniques!

What we do

We’ll spend a day with you reviewing your programme and discuss with you what elements of programme infrastructure you need most and soonest, for example:

Goal-oriented governance

Project and programme boards with the right people, agreed terms of reference, reporting packs to drive decisions and follow-up packs to ensure action.

Financial frameworks

A cost tracker to compare forecast and actual spend with budget, sliced and diced to enable you to spot and overcome financial problems.

Savvy scheduling

An integrated schedule of delivery activities, with dependencies, resource allocations and milestones, and filters, so you can identify risks while there is still time to do something about it.

Tools for teamwork

A web portal to allow team members to see project documents, work items, and hot topics, with views to focus them on their own activities or give them an overview of the project as a whole.

Choosy change control

Agreed and documented principles, and a register to capture requests and assess impacts, so you can approve the good requests and reject the rest.

Articulate analytics

Visualisations of live programme data, so you can see where risks, issues and actions come from and how long it takes to resolve them, to improve your control of the programme and predictability of delivery.

What sets us apart

We work on an outcomes basis

We don’t need a desk in your office or any equipment - we've got that covered.

 

Day to day, we will keep in touch regularly using online conferencing and asynchronous collaboration tools. We can provide a face to face option where necessary, to achieve a specific outcome.

 

So whether you’re keen to minimise your facilities footprint, or you're operating across multiple time zones - you can benefit from our services regardless of your physical location.

We deliver, then we depart

When you engage with us to achieve a particular outcome, we’ll agree with you how this will be delivered using a statement of work with clear milestones, metrics and measures.

 

Then we’ll work with laser focus to deliver that outcome.

 

When it’s done we’ll carry out any agreed knowledge transfer - and then we’ll move on.

We are self starters

Once we’ve all agreed what’s needed, we’ll get to work!

 

We will keep you updated throughout, and you can expect us to put in as much effort as is needed to deliver results.

 

Because let’s face it - it’s results you need, not more management overhead, right?

 

And if those results happen sooner than expected, rest assured that we won’t conjure up more work to bill you for.

Get in touch! We are looking forward to getting started.
