As a new, agile, and entrepreneurial business we minimise our overhead to enable us to offer competitive consultancy rates. We work either via fixed firm priced contracts (as a risk sharing partner) or time and materials which provides ultimate flexibility to our clients. We often perform bid support work at reduced cost for guaranteed work share or a win fee.
Our experienced consultants work closely with our clients to help solve their problems. We either provide capabilities our clients do not possess, or we fill a capability gap. Our work includes helping our clients create and deliver their products and services. Consultancy service delivery often includes parallel development of our client’s capabilities. We know one size does not fit all, so we work with clients to tailor our consultancy service to meet their specific needs.
We have experience in leadership positions across P3M. We are often responsible for significant Profit & Loss accounts in multi-national businesses, critical budgets in large programmes, and the delivery of projects crucial to our client’s success. In addition to leading projects, programmes and portfolios, we also provide support to those within our client’s organisation who do this work.
We have a history of delivering successful responses to large and small client tenders across a range of end-customers, (e.g. government and tier 1 organisations) within the UK and overseas. We can lead the entire bid process or provide our expertise where required. We understand the right analysis, the right relationships, the right content, and the appropriate commercial offering are all key to success.
We offer the expertise to set up and operate a client’s Project Management Office (PMO) ensuring the right data is captured and used for the benefit of their business. Using our experience of project controls tools (MSP, P6 and Artemis), we can perform specific roles within a PMO.
We have experience working with industry-leading tools (ARM, @Risk, etc.) and we understand that quality, rather than quantity, of data, coupled with focused and sustained action will help avoid the uncertainty that can erode time, cost and quality.
Efficient subcontract management promotes consistency in managing subcontracts across functions, mitigates risk to the organisation and contract, and can increase profitably. We pride ourselves on our ability to develop relationships, engage across teams effectively and develop pragmatic solutions. Modern, complex programmes are heavily reliant on subcontractors and we have demonstrable experience to make a difference.
We understand contracts need ongoing commercial management, not only to ensure compliance to contractual commitments and the achievement of expected benefits, but also to identify opportunities for improvement and additional added value.
Our Decision Support Team specialise in qualitative and quantitative modelling. We provide economic and support system analysis expertise, typically used for the design and operation of complex military equipment.
Our capabilities enable us to perform business analytics and data visualisation. We help our clients answer their business operation questions such as how many, how often and how much.
We pride ourselves on identifying and using the most appropriate modelling techniques and tools to meet our client’s business requirements, providing rapid analytical outputs which underpin their operational decision making.
Our economic modelling service includes:
This comprises the use of techniques and tools such as best practice spreadsheet modelling with MS Excel, MS Power BI and Python and stochastic modelling tools such as @risk, Predict and ARRISCA for estimating audit.
Our support system analysis service can address both support design and operation. This includes:
This analysis can address architecture, operational processes, and cost. It can also include use of simulation modelling for maintenance and support operations. Techniques used are compliant with a range of standards such as Defence Standard 00-600 and the ASD Integrated Logistic Support standards.
As experts in the application of Defence Systems Approach to Training (DSAT) and JSP822 methodologies, we have developed an excellent reputation for providing robust and effective support to complex military and industrial training projects. We typically support clients with Training Needs Analysis (TNA), Training Design, Evaluation of Training Solutions and Research & Concept Studies. Our in-house modelling capability is used to support the identification of the training effectiveness and cost efficiency of training solutions.
