Specialised Management Group delivers world class “big four” consulting experience without the high price-tag. We work in collaboration with our clients by typically integrating into their teams with no more than 2 of our experienced SMG ‘A’ Team consultants onsite. We believe working together is the recipe for success. This approach offers our clients a cost effective delivery, a real transfer of skills to the client teams and ensures you are able to take over allowing us to exit once the engagement is complete. We don’t like to stay longer than is needed which is why 90% of our business is repeat!
Our program leadership team can take the pressure off by helping you define a structured, programmatic approach to delivery and provide the direction, leadership and momentum required to keep your initiatives on track. We also provide guidance and coaching to key individuals in your governance structure to encourage business ownership and the development of your program leadership capability.
Even the best strategy is nothing more than words on a piece of paper without a well-developed & managed plan to turn it into a reality. SMG can help the Executive team translate organisation strategies into a portfolio of Programmes and Projects to help you realise benefits.
PROJECT AND PROGRAM MANAGEMENT
Project Mobilisation – Only 39% of Projects succeed (Standish Survey: Paris 2013), SMG can give you a clear focus on delivery of benefits, establish a robust plan and embed governance and control mechanisms.
Project Rescue – With Executive commitment and our experiential techniques we bring Projects and Programs back on track. We are committed to delivering a Portfolio with “the Right Projects for the Right reasons”.
Project/Program Delivery – SMG’s emphasis addresses the right mix of people, tools and techniques in place as well as the balance in the scale of change taking place through Projects within the organisation.
We can help you understand and manage change by establishing a strategic framework on which you can build your change initiatives and integrate it with your Project/Program frameworks to ensure higher success rates. Never forget success for a project results from an effectively delivered solution that is embraced, adopted and utilized by impacted employees
PMO BUILD AND AUDIT
By establishing a centre of excellence executives have greater visibility and control across strategic initiatives. We are highly experienced in setting up and managing PMO’s and can provide you with the structure, information, tools and techniques to ensure you have the right programs and project in place, business and change priorities are balanced and that you have sufficient resources to deliver successfully.
Without the benefit of objective project reviewers, many projects will be flying under the radar with significant flaws – many of them inefficient, ultimately costly and perhaps fatal. Find out more about our unique assurance approach.
