HomePreparing for change / planning a project

preparing for change

For businesses with purpose relying on Projects / Programme / Product benefits.

Supporting in the stage it’s needed most (preparation).

Your best opportunity to identify, manage and mitigate your risk is in the preparation stage.

 If you’ve never started a project before – ask for help and benefit from lessons learnt (the hard way). 

 In construction you wouldn’t start on site activity without a method statement.

Why start a new project or programme without an execution plan, strategy, and method to reduce risk.

 Understand your options and maximise your opportunities to benefit your people and your business.

 You don’t need a lot.  Just a little of the right type of support.

Manufacturing – With experience in pre-construction, planning, and delivery of projects across operational estate, we understand the unique engineering and concurrency challenges presented by manufacturing projects in operational environments. 
Infrastructure – We understand how Infrastructure projects and programmes are funded, the investment and management mechanisms required, with experience of how delivery services are procured in packages. This understanding shapes how we respond and control.
Logistics – We’ve experienced the flexibility, adaptability and scalability challenges presented by these projects.  Increasing levels of automation and digitisation present complexity many would not anticipate initially.
Innovation – We recognise innovation needs to justify the benefit to be sustainable.  The assessment, ranking and prioritisation of innovation relative to benefit is key.  No point innovating if not beneficial.   
Aviation – We appreciate the technical, logistical and stakeholder complexity these projects and programmes present, with experience in establishing control & reporting methods which create simplicity amongst complexity.
Rail – We understand how national procurement creates a framework for national rail and infrastructure projects, with a critical need to integrate new methods with existing practices.  Systems integration and alignment key.
Retail – We appreciate the challenges faced in the retail sector, particularly around businesses case, evolving requirements, and stakeholder management. Our cross-sector experience benefits our approach.
