What

We provide key specialists to work alongside client staff to strengthen your execution team. They are second-to-none in their field. We have no novices. Working with well-known ‘blue chip’ clients, each specialist has over 20 years of frontline management experience in IT, telecoms, media, and service companies.

When

The choice is yours. Always best to identify any critical role gaps in the beginning but that is often easier said than done. We can either take full, end-to-end, responsibility for delivery of a business-critical program, or fill critical roles in the program leadership team to inject pace and provide specialist practical support.

Why

Why not? If the program is truly transformational in nature and is business-critical then surely you want the ‘A’ team leading and running the program. You may not have those leaders and skills in-house. Launching a business-critical program, with vital delivery roles staffed by people who are simply “available,” is a recipe for disaster.

How

In all our delivery engagements, we deconstruct both the big and the small problems, figure out all the options, then roll up our sleeves and do what needs to be done. Your program team gets battle-tested direction, counselling and one-to-one coaching. We share every shred of insight, advice and experience we have with you.

Launching a mission critical program, with vital delivery roles staffed by people who are simply “available,” is a recipe for disaster.

Blooding promising, but inexperienced, rookies is equally unrealistic.

It’s no surprise that few companies have the program leadership skills they need in-house.

“Experience” shortfalls have huge consequences; what people don’t know can really hurt them.

However sound the strategy and execution plan, without experienced individuals in critical program roles, delivery calamities are never far away.

The idea that “process” and well-intentioned managers with PMI or Prince2-itis can outdo experience, good judgement and leadership is a management delusion – an ill-judged fantasy.

We provide key specialists to work alongside client staff to strengthen your execution team. They are second-to-none in their field. We have no novices.

All of our specialists have been successful many times, in many organisations. Most have held senior management positions in marketing, network, IT, product development and large-scale program management.

Working with well-known ‘blue chip’ clients, each specialist has over 20 years of frontline management experience in IT, telecoms, media, and service companies.

Any program delivery role we take on depends on the maturity and capability of the in-house team. We can either take full, end-to-end, responsibility for delivery of a business-critical program, or fill critical roles in the program leadership team.
