The consultancy approach is based on practical solutions tailored to client needs. These are delivered in-person while maximising the use and development of client in-house resource. This leads to ownership and sustainability of solutions in the long term by the client.
Solving Complex Business Problems
A key driver of business performance is the ability to solve complex problems. It is important to apply the right organisational focus and resource with an independent external perspective. Early identification of root causes, drivers and metrics enables solution options to be developed with business stakeholders. These options can then be evaluated against strategy and success criteria such as speed, budget and risk tolerance, to select the best solution. Planning, rapid delivery and review conclude the initial cycle.
Developing New Opportunities
Balancing the need for speed with quality and cost constraints requires the right level of resource and process to be applied. Identifying and generating opportunities leads on to screening (cost, benefit, risk, do-ability, strategic fit) then prioritisation, planning, delivery and review. Harry has extensive practical experience with a wide range of proven tools and techniques to ensure end-to-end success. These can be applied together with his 'subject matter expertise' when running initiatives to develop new opportunities as single projects or portfolios in a programme. Many clients find this additional 'director level' temporary resource a powerful 'agile' catalyst which improves business performance in today's dynamic and extremely competitive market place.
