Benefits Management

While benefits lie at the heart of why many projects and programs are established, they are notoriously difficult to define, track and realise. Our team has the skills and experience to help you succeed with all aspects of benefits management – from initial identification through to working with executives to drive real, measurable and effective benefits realisation.

Business Case Development & Investment Planning

At the heart of every Program or Project lies a business case which looks at the options, risks, costs and benefits from “doing nothing” to varying levels of solutions to address a problem or enhance capability. Our team has helped many organisations plan initiatives and help maximise the effectiveness of your investments. Whilst subject matter expertise is critical to build the necessary rigour around ensuring a return on your investment, having an independent assessment helps you reduce bias.

Working together with our Experience Design teams at Symplicit, utilising Design Thinking techniques, we can also ensure that the problems that your Program or Project is attempting to address are well defined and that the initiative has every chance of addressing the actual problem, something that is often obscure and difficult to uncover.

Project & Program Review

We are experts at bringing at-risk and failing initiatives back on track to deliver successful outcomes. There is no initiative ‘too red’ for us to recover. We take on our clients’ most initiatives turn around their odds of success by transforming documentation, governance, vendor management, stakeholder engagement, reporting, issue escalation and executive engagement.
