We operate at three levels, depending on your requirements. Firstly, project management – helping you deliver a single scheme. Depending on its size and complexity, this may require just one consultant or a bespoke team. Secondly, programme management – supporting a set of interlinked projects, typically with a team of consultants. Thirdly, portfolio management – helping you deliver a portfolio of programmes and projects, typically deploying a team that will deliver economies of scale to your capital investments.
We have over 20 years’ experience in managing a wide range of such initiatives across our core sectors, including:
- Road Maintenance Performance Contracts – Queensland Highways
- £60M pa Managing Agent Contracts – NW England Highways Agency
- Strategy & Business Planning Project – Kvaerner International
- Manchester City Council Capital Investment Programme – £15M pa
- $5M Transformation Project (Project 21) – statewide change programme for Qld Main Roads
Our fundamental approach is to work in partnership with our clients as valued advisors. Our policy of remaining independent from providers of supply chain services, such as design and construction, avoids conflicts of interest and ensures we always manage those services in our client’s best interests.
Strategic Business Case Development
Working collaboratively with our clients, we provide support and advice on the development and preparation of strategic business cases. We will ensure that development of a successful business case clearly aligns with corporate strategy and closely links defined benefits with investment requirements.
Business Review / Health Check
Through our role as independent consultants, we undertake critical reviews / health checks for business against their corporate and project objectives, in line with developing business cases at key milestones in the project lifecycle.
We review and assess the detailed scope requirements at the project level against the business case and good industry practice, and summarise, along with recommendations to help address identified issues. We also perform critical assessments for public sector projects and help define the nature and detailed scope of projects to develop strategies for effective risk management and make recommendations for effective performance metrics.
