We live in a complex and rapidly-changing business world. Within this environment major technology programmes are notoriously difficult to manage. Programme benefits can be difficult to define, business requirements often change and technology design can be costly and time consuming. What’s more, the pressures of “business-as-usual” often divert attention at critical times.
Given all of this, how do you choose the right partner to help you deal with these challenges and still deliver tangible results?
We believe that for a project to be successful, it must have:
We have built an enviable track record of helping some of the largest and most demanding technology programmes in the world succeed as well as turning around potentially high profile project failures. We recognise that technology is only one of a number of key success factors central to project success. The secret is in identifying the most important success factors and managing them rigorously through the lifecycle of the project.
We offer you proven expertise in all the key areas required to make your programme successful, whatever the project phase and whatever the success factor.
The strengths and capabilities of our people are our greatest asset. They will bring you an unmatched depth and breadth of experience both advising on and delivering major programmes – we firmly believe that you need experience of both in order to maximise value.
We will commit our most senior and experienced people to ensure your success, people who have worked on some of the largest and most complex technology programmes in the world.
Our teams are tailored to exactly match your needs, drawing from our wide range of capabilities locally and globally to rapidly provide you with the right mix of people – programme managers, architects, developers, finance specialists or whatever. We prefer to integrate closely with your team and we ensure that, when the time comes for us to leave, your team is equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to carry on without us.
We understand the pressures and problems faced by major programmes, and we come with a realistic, positive mindset. We don’t bring a standard set of services or a “one-size-fits-all” methodology; we tailor our approach to meet the specific needs of the project.
Our independence is one of our greatest assets. It means we focus on the solutions that are best for you, whether that be bespoke software, off the shelf, an outsourced solution, or a shared service. We don’t sell products and you don’t have to worry that we are setting you up to buy low-value software development or outsourcing services. We are proud of our honest and direct advice because your success is our success.
