Consultancy

By thinking strategically and looking at the bigger picture, we have helped many clients at the “front end” of their projects without being involved in the delivery phase. Involving a project manager at inception will help to identify and define all the issues at stake, from personal and emotional involvement to pure business need.

We apply collaborative and interactive techniques to consider issues such as risk and opportunity, stakeholder involvement, environmental aspirations, procurement routes, scope definition and of course brief development.

The early development of a project strategy will look at issues such as risk and opportunity, stakeholder involvement, environmental aspirations, procurement routes, scope definition and brief development. Below are some of the standalone elements of applying a strategy:
