As we often say at Devereaux Kelly Associates, “Governance is our Friend”!
We help you establish your portfolio, programme and project management offices, ensuring that control tools and project life cycle processes are in place, alongside an effective approach to stakeholder management, people engagement, highlight reports and project board meetings.
We support your risk assessments, ensure a holistic approach is taken to establishing the risks that may impede both project delivery and your corporate reputation. Working with sponsors and management teams we will ensure that preventative actions and resources are in place to avoid major issues materialising in-flight.
We recognise that in-flight projects and programmes can often go off track, with cost overruns, schedule delays and failure to leverage the planned value.
We provide an impartial assessment to help you get back on track, highlighting the root causes of delays and recommendations on remedial action. Given our role as ‘critical friend’, we can also provide an objective and independent view on whether a project has ultimately reached the end of the road and now needs to be canned!
We also offer other support and practical advice in areas such as corporate governance, corporate risk management, cost reduction initiatives, internal audit, continuous improvement, 5S, diversity and inclusion programmes, and scenario planning.
We help you to understand disruption in your environment, using proven methodologies such as horizon scanning, qualitative and quantitative research and strategic reframing. We can generate insights in an informative and creative way to explore possible, probable and preferable futures. We can develop scenarios to test current assumptions, trends and strategy, helping you to tell stories about the future.
