Consultancy & Assurance

Research shows that less than a third of IT-based projects deliver what they said they would, on time and on budget. That track record has not improved appreciably over the last 30 years.

We help organisations to take an alternative approach, based on the pull of business value, rather than the usual push of requirements, features and functions.

We describe our approach as Lean Project Management, applying to projects the principles of lean thinking that revolutionised the manufacturing industry.

But lean thinking isn't just about process, it's also about leadership: defining the right problem, creating a shared vision, using multiple perspectives to generate genuinely alternative solutions and, critically, following through. We can help with all of these.

A  lean approach reduces waste, risk and, ultimately, failure.

Past assignments have included:
  • helping to set up new projects and programmes
  • rescuing projects and programmes in trouble
  • carrying out project and programme health-checks
  • establishing delivery assurance frameworks
  • interim management
A lean approach is completely compatible with all project management and software development methodologies, such as PRINCE2 , PMI, SCRUM, Agile variants etc. 

Lean Project Management is about changing the mindset of how we think about, structure and tackle business problems, not formal governance structures or development techniques.
