Management consultancy

Organizations operating in complex and often highly regulated environments trust our expert advice and ability to lead them through change, while providing expert project management support.

Our clients are under increasing pressure to drive productivity, improve performance, and reduce costs. We help them to create the structures, processes, technology and behaviours needed to turn their vision for a more streamlined operation into reality. Key elements of our approach include:

Our management consultants provide independent advice and practical support to private sector companies, regulated industries, government departments and other public institutions. Our team identifies the unique drivers of change facing your organisation and works to develop the transformation programs and projects that will deliver the greatest benefits.

We have the real-world experience needed to manage change in practice, not just on paper. We’ve been shaping organizations, infrastructure and even entire cities for the past 100 years. That means the direction and support our consultants offer is specifically targeted to help our clients stay ahead in a dynamic and increasingly digital business environment. This goes hand-in-hand with delivering programmes and projects on time and within budget.

For example, in the UK we’re a founding member of the Management Consultancies Association’s Consulting Excellence Scheme. This reinforces our people’s commitment to maintaining high ethical standards and to ensuring our clients receive the best service.

Digital transformation

The shift to digital has been one of the biggest challenges many organisations have faced in their existence. We are selected and trusted to work closely with government, critical national infrastructure and industry clients to achieve lasting improvements and better outcomes, by using new digital technologies and innovative ways of doing business. Our digital transformation capabilities and people create competitive advantages and deliver improved outcomes for citizens and end-users.

We provide the following services to achieve this:

  • Digital transformation fitness assessment
  • Digital vision and strategy development
  • Digital delivery integrator
  • Agile delivery models in Complex Environments [aCE]
  • Digital PMO and programme delivery

Why digital transformation?

Digital transformation is essential to our clients' ability to navigate and thrive in today’s ever-changing, complex, increasingly connected and inherently digital world. It enables our clients to take advantage of unprecedented changes to society, new technological capabilities and business models, making it possible for them to achieve the enduring cultural and organizational changes that deliver improved results. Exploiting digital technologies and possibilities also helps create leaner, more agile organizations that respond at pace – reducing the cost of doing business.

Why choose us?

Our deep engineering, systems and technology experience gives our digital transformation clients confidence of our proven ability to set strategy, design, build, operate and leverage major assets – both physical and digital.

That’s why, from large-scale projects and complex organizations, to work in highly-regulated and secure sectors, our clients trust us to deliver. Our approach is human-centric: we don’t seek to implement the latest technologies regardless of the overall goal – our focus is on the right approach and achieving our clients’ desired outcomes, including the right architecture, software, hardware, cyber resilience, business model and culture. After all, it’s our clients’ people and customers who are the most important factor in digital transformation.
