People & process based issues (Learn more . . .)

We focus on addressing the people & process based issues that are the main reason why many organisations across all sectors find that projects frequently do not deliver the anticipated business value and often run into a variety of difficulties.  This is true for all types of business projects and particularly IT solution or software development.   Some recent analysis is provided below:

Key:

  • Successful:   On time, to specification and within budget
  • Challenged:  Late, over budget and/or with less than the required features and functions
  • Failed:         Cancelled

We can help you to address the underlying reasons for failed and challenged projects:

  • Communication problems
  • Not responding effectively to business change
  • Delayed or late return on investment
  • Ineffective project controls & governance
  • Solution did not meet business needs
  • Gap between business and IT functions
  • Late delivery or cost overruns
  • Lack of business case
  • Unclear requirements or business objectives

“The message for IT is clear; business needs and expects greater agility from IT. The current approaches to project prioritisation, resourcing, agility and governance are clearly not satisfying customer needs. A new approach to IT delivery models and sourcing options is required that allows IT organisations to be more responsive to the needs of the business.

We are passionate about the benefits we can deliver when working pragmatically and collaboratively with organisations to help transform their approach to delivery of projects or solution development.  We help embed a culture within both Business and IT functions that is:

  • Agile (an approach that is proven, robust & scalable)
  • Business results focused
  • Collaborative

This approach enables business functions (including end user and IT functions) to work together effectively to consistently meet an organisations demanding targets and embrace business change.

If there ever was a silver bullet to kill the demons of project failure it is an iterative and agile process.”  Source: The Standish Group, Chaos Rising 2005

Working collaboratively with your organisation we pragmatically apply our extensive knowledge and expertise to ensure the transformation integrates effectively within your unique environment.

The result?

Each solution or change required by the organization is the one that is delivered – on time.

Through addressing these key people & process based issues, we ensure that an organisation’s projects do deliver the anticipated business value and help them to achieve better business results.

We help drive significant efficiency improvements that generate faster return on investment, increasing innovation, reducing delivery time, increasing the quality of the solution, maximising the potential of existing staff and increasing their contribution & commitment.
