Project & Programme management
Project and Programme management are vital: the key differentiators between success and failure.
Too often "programme management" is used to mean managing sets of disparate projects. A true Programme is complex and multithreaded and requires not just skill and expertise but a real deep understanding of how the programme moves the organization forward: what Deming characterised as "profound knowledge".
A technical success with disaffected users is not a success. The needs and well-being of the stakeholders must be embedded in the programme and each project from the very start.
We also firmly believe that success comes from doing simple things very well too - and challenging assumptions is something we are very good at indeed.
