Tools and techniques

What we do:

Create a holistic approach to managing strategic initiatives consisting of multiple interdependent projects (a portfolio) to deliver new capabilities and the realisation of benefits into the business.


How do we do this?

To manage the potential disruption to the business (as these types of business initiative are in response to an economic driver and are generally long-term) the strategic vision is assessed for congruence with the future direction of the business, then we define the strategies and structures for managing the transformation programme and plan and execute the delivery of capabilities and benefits.

Our Approach:

Identify programme

Define programme

Manage tranches

Deliver capability

Realise benefits

Close programme


MSP – Programme Management: 

MSP1: Identify programme 


MSP2: Define programme

MSP3: Manage tranches 

MSP4: Deliver capability

MSP5: Realise benefits

MSP6: Close programme
