Our Services

Program Acceleration and Program Recovery

In every delivery engagement, we roll up our sleeves and do what needs to be done. Your program team gets battle-tested direction, counselling and one-to-one coaching, making sure your business-critical programs actually hit their financial targets.

We can either take full, end-to-end, responsibility for delivery of a business-critical program, fill critical roles in the program leadership team or provide a rapid assessment including recommended plans to get an off track program back on course. It depends on the experience and capability of the in-house team.

The warning signs are all too obvious

Programs are late, over budget or failing to deliver benefits – often, all three. Program Setup issues also crop up in Programs that need program acceleration or program recovery. The reasons Why Programs Collapse can include the absence of a credible baseline, no accountable Program Director and little focus on benefits.

ASSESSMENT

The first stage of recovery – or acceleration – is to carry out a fast, evidence-based assessment of a business-critical program, checked against
Mentor’s Blueprint.

  • Root causes of failure pinpointed and dealt with
  • Clarity on the entire program, allowing better quality decisions from the leadership team

STRATEGY PLAN

We then prepare a targeted plan to deal with the underlying causes of sub-standard performance – and build a more robust program strategy, based on a clear and accurate baseline.

  • Program focus re-adjusted to meet strategic needs and on delivering benefits
  • Program focus re-adjusted to meet strategic needs and on delivering benefits

ACCELERATION

We help to catapult any program back to ‘winning ways’. We can take on the leadership role – and actively manage key execution levers.

  • Wider organisation re-engaged with program and responsibilities clearly understood

What our clients say about us

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT

Mentor are not really like any consultancy that I have worked with before. I actually hesitate to use the word ‘consultancy’ because that would conjure images of strategic consultants, people that come in at short order who look at your organisation and perhaps give you some guidance strategically about areas you should be looking at, and that is so not what Mentor do. Mentor, for me, are an organisation that have a lot of experience and skill, a lot of industry veterans who have been around big projects and big programs and have delivered them effectively over the years. They will come in, and look at very large, very complex business-critical projects, and they won’t assist you in thinking about them, but they will assist you in delivering them.
