We specialise in the 'front end' of project, programme and portfolio planning - workshop facilitation, investment logic mapping, business case development, policy, strategy and strategic planning.
We are not a Big 4 or a "full service" firm and we don't claim to know everything! In fact, asking tricky questions is a key part of our process, to understand the true drivers of an issue, initiative or project.
We also assist organisations, working in with relevant subject-matter experts as required, to design solutions that reflect those drivers and will realise their intended benefits.
What on Earth are Structured Conversations?
Have you ever heard the expression that a business case or strategy should be a thinking exercise, not a writing exercise? We believe this 100%, and take it a step further. A proper thinking exercise needs to involve a conversation - with the right people in the room, a clearly defined purpose and a commitment to change. With all of these elements - you have yourself a Structured Conversation!
Structured Conversations is a model for solving problems, planning change and understanding options. A unique combination of best-practice methodology which includes Investment Logic Mapping (ILM), Better Business Cases (BBC), IAP2, policy, strategic planning and communications frameworks. This approach uses interactive and engaging workshop facilitation, supported by best-practice fieldwork, analysis and review to provide expert insight for your organisation.
- A deeper understanding of strategic issues
- Early engagement and buy-in
- A compelling, evidence-based case for investment, change or review.
