Our Approach to Project Management

Effective and timely project management is underpinned by robust data, effective systems and strong governance. However the primary goal is always to motivate and align people behind a One Team approach.

The One Team Approach

Our people bring the market insight, additional capacity, procurement tools and robust systems of Our Approach. Your people bring the detailed understanding of the history and needs of your business. The One Team approach supports your people as they make key decisions impacting your brand and customers.

Setup

At Set Up stage, we start our journey together and set out the engagement. Achieved quickly, this phase establishes clarity over objectives, roles, communication and governance, launching the project.

  • Headline objectives
  • Scope of work
  • Stakeholder mapping
  • Communications plan
  • Governance structure
  • Letter of agreement

Scoping

We take a pragmatic approach to clarifying and understanding your needs. To the normal ‘Hard Scoping’ of data and contracts, we add what we call ‘Soft Scoping’. This is where we take time to get to know you and ask key questions. What’s worked in the past, what hasn’t, and what are you hoping for? Our goal is to create Objectives and Approach Strategies that can be delivered and that will endure in your business, with your people.

  • Building an ‘As-Is’ picture of your existing supply chain
  • Market interrogation and price/service benchmarking
  • Approach Strategy development
  • Project Planning

Delivery

This is where we roll our sleeves up and really get to work. Keeping impacted stakeholders engaged to create One Team to deliver the Approach Strategies we created in the Scoping phase. It’s intense and we work at pace in order to realise the benefits, On-Time and In-Full.

  • Hands-on tendering, negotiating and auctioning
  • Sampling and trialling; assessing fit for purpose supply chain
  • Easing the burden on your people while ensuring they are the ones making the key decisions
  • Creation of robust ‘baselines’ and ‘closure packs’; locking-in auditable value
  • Implementation of the tools, systems and disciplines that lock-in the benefits and creates a lasting legacy

Closure

It’s frustrating when Finance can’t see the savings coming through. That’s why we work hard after we’ve delivered the supply chain solution to make sure that legacy systems, tools and disciplines are in place, Finance are clear on benefits tracking and senior management are happy to recommend us for creating real value together:

  • Baseline and End Pack sign off
  • Benefits tracking tools in place
  • Visibility of real value

Post-Project

It’s not all work, work, work. Our projects run at pace and are intensive, and at the end it’s important we share in the success as One Team. We forge strong relationships and friendships along the way and after we have all created a step change, we like to go out and celebrate.
