At P2 Consulting, we are specialists in ensuring that the goals you set for your business are fully delivered. 100% of the time. We don’t write lengthy reports or try to impress you with presentations, reports and charts.We get our hands dirty, roll our sleeves up and get to work. We are like a super-charged extension of your team; getting the heavy lifting done around the organisation to make things happen….particularly at a time when your team is maxed out; or when you need to deliver on a one-off initiative like an acquisition or the launch of a new product or gain entry into a new market. We are about getting YourVision Realised.
Our services are built around this. We manage across the investment life-cycle, from helping you and your team back the right ideas that optimise value for the business, to mobilising the organisation into action and then delivering the tangible outcomes.
We have the best people in the market to do this, but the power comes when coupled with our comprehensive range of tools, techniques and products. Each of which has been
proven in practice (and not just on the whiteboard).
The first thing to note is that we don’t simply “plug-in” offthe-shelf products and services like many other management consultancy firms. We believe in treating each new business challenge as unique and tailoring the solution to meet defined objectives. For that purpose our tools and methods are modular, all highly configurable and they interfaceseamlessly with the systems and tools you already have in place across your organisation.
Take our Enterprise Project Management (“EPM”) approach for example: We have the expertise to leveragethe value from industry standard tools such as Microsoft’s EPM suite or from a product like Clarity, but we have also developed our own EPM-lite approach that is highly practical, rapid and cost efficient to implement and provides a very flexible alternative. But, because we never charge for our tools and intellectual assets, we are totally independent to advise on and implement the best tool for your organisation. Furthermore, we only deploy tools
and techniques that are proven to add value in “real” situations – that can be implemented and leveraged in ‘reallife’ and not just in theoretical, perfect organisations as some tools are designed.
The second unique feature of our intellectual property is that it has been built from experience, sweat (and tears) of over two decades of managing in excess of £100bnworth of projects and delivering a staggering £500bn of business benefits to Global 500 companies. The leadership team at P2 Consulting has a combined 300 years’ project delivery experience working together. The tools andtechniques we bring to bear have been crafted throughout this time and adapted to remain relevant, value-add and leading-edge. We believe this is unrivalled in the industry.
A good example here is our Programme Design & Mobilisation method. Over the years we have often been engaged when a client has just completed a strategic reviewexercise. There is a very satisfied air around theplace as the glossy strategy document has recently been signed off by the Board; but when asked: “OK, what do you need to do first to start to put the strategy into action? What needs to be done today and tomorrow?” There is often a stunned silence. Many years’ ago, we devised a slick process, supported by a suite of tools that takes the strategic thinking
and starts to make it happen. Our systematic approach to major Programme design and mobilisation provides a step-by-step guide to getting the strategic vision into a comprehensive and “do-able” action plan. This method has been deployed on some of the World’s most complex initiatives. It’s a formula that ensures the Delivery Programme is set up to succeed from Day One and that you gainthe necessary buy-in and commitment across the organisation to make it happen.
Our tool-box is full of pragmatic and practical stuff like this that optimizes the chances of success and decreases the risk of failure. Our services, tools and techniqueshave been honed from the experience of our team over many years delivering some of the largest and most successful projects in corporate history. But whereas many of our competitors focus entirely on delivering the project, you will see from our range of services that we place an equal emphasis on driving out the benefits to the organisation after the project has been delivered. We see this as not
just integral to the process, but the absolute critical component.
For example you need to make sure that your business-critical project is ready to go-live and the project has delivered what you said it would. Our Implementation Confidence Matrix is a key component to drive thedecision making at all levels across the business. We then manage a process that ensures your organisation willbe able to execute business on Day 1 as efficiently as possible. Our benefits delivery framework allows you to track the outcomes beyond go-live until they are “hard-wired”into the organisation; but using our framework, wewill have already independently verify the robustness of the benefit forecasts and have a benefits roadmap in place ensuring front-line accountability for benefit delivery.
And so, the whole investment life-cycle is our domain, not just the day to day management of a project. Our tools and techniques help ensure you capture the best ideas across your team, shape them and mobilise the organization to make them happen and drive the outcomes at the end continually improving your ability to execute…and ultimately reducing your reliance on us….yes…there’s a problem with that model somewhere!!!
