Programme & project management – The discipline of success

Effective programme & project management is key to successfully delivering complex change programmes and in helping organisations transform the performance of their organisations by truly delivering benefits expected.

Leading organizations across sectors and geographic borders have been
steadily embracing project management as a way to control spending and improve project results particularly when purse strings are tight or at times of recession.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution for programme management. Business leaders must understand what is needed to meet their specific challenge and build a tailored approach to make it happen.

It has long been established that exceptional results are delivered by bringing together teams with the right experts and the practical experience to challenge conventional thinking. A collaborative approach and hands-on style help clients realize benefits quickly, achieving a significant and lasting impact.

When a project is successfully managed, there are many benefits to be gained, from large cost and time savings to keeping the stress levels of the team low so they remain focused.

Often one of the busiest members of the team, the project managers that ensure all projects run smoothly and get delivered on time, within budget should now play an active role in ensuring the teams are as stress free as possible and that stakeholders are supported though any resulting change.

Our approach

Our proactive and disciplined approach provides a relentless focus on making sure your programmes or projects are delivered on-time whilst driving business value and ensuring the required business outcomes and benefits are achieved. The approach becomes the yellow brick road in your next successful programme.

We at Changera understand the complexity in projects and can help you secure success via well-informed decision making and effective communication channels.

We work with you, not for you, to understand your need, to deliver but help you also build the capability of your project staff and leave a legacy of:

  • better project management expertise and knowledge in your organisation
  • setting, observing, and re-evaluating project priorities frequently to focus and prioritize by handling fewer emails, attending fewer meetings, and generally limiting their data input perhaps counter intuitive for some.
  • better communication and timely management information by asking good questions and listening to stakeholders from all projects allows you to understand the risks and seize the opportunities facing your project or programme.
  • use of good Change Management practices to not only help manage the project with the obvious but also manage the often unobvious – the impact on people during and when the project is fully delivered; part of this is including health and wellbeing supporting programmes.

We use experience with a mix of skills and character chosen specifically to fit seamlessly into each programme environment. We work with you to build a solid foundation for your programme and help you focus on what is critical to successfully deliver your programme. You can either learn from us or with us.

Our project management expertise offers a flexible and highly bespoke service based on a robust and well-proven formula for delivery. Working alongside our clients, we adopt a value-driven approach to defining and articulating business and project objectives before identifying the most effective means to deliver. This includes a full spectrum of project management services from the preparation of business cases to straightforward management and delivery.

Regardless of the scale or complexity of a project, we employ and refine systems and processes to provide control, governance and transparency from inception to completion. At the point of every decision we challenge the status quo and work diligently to find the smartest, most efficient and most cost effective solution as part of the on-going management.

Taking the approaches that we do affords the highest levels and benefits of

  • Customer care
  • Strong leadership from start to finish
  • Programmes that can easily enter into Life Cycle Management to respond to business change
  • Seamless integration with the organisation

On arriving at project completion fundamentally, we review performance against the initial aims of the project. What went well? What were the problem areas of the project? Was the project delivered on time and to budget? If not, what were the sticking points? Were the correct numbers of resource assigned with the correct expertise? Through this analysis important insights can be gained into how the process can be improved for the next project.

Whether its just extra resource using your own systems or a fresh new approach using a proven framework that you need, manage your programmes better by better programme management!
