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.
