Delivering Complex Projects

Puzzle
Volatility and uncertainty are market realities for most businesses today
Agility is more important than ever to build the right solutions quickly
Cross-functional Collaboration is the key to deliver results quickly and in a sustainable way

THE CHALLENGE

In today’s business environment, companies are challenged by
  1. the need for faster and more radical change,
  2. the need for faster innovation execution,
  3. having only a short time before results need to be delivered,
  4. the complexity and magnitude of change, which requires cross-functional or multi-stakeholder collaboration
Most projects waste lots of effort and value, because they apply outdated/incorrect setup and delivery methods. This results in excess cost, time, effort and lost opportunities to generate positive impact.
Some of the main symptoms that indicate that your project is in trouble:
Requirements are unclear
Underestimated complexity / Overconfidence bias
Timelines are too ambitious
Expectations are not aligned
Implementing the work too early
Lack of competencies of resources
Not seeing the big picture (Systemic view), Not ‘connecting the dots’
Projects are too big for one entity alone
Office politics over facts,
Lack of entrepreneurship

OUR APPROACH

We structure and deliver your most important projects, from ‘Idea to Impact’.
Applying our Lean and Agile Delivery (LEAD) method will get the job done. Working cross-functional has always been our sweet spot and differentiation. It is a key driver for success.
Our LEAD method applies SCRUM principles to deliver business results. Applying agile principles outside of software development has been proven difficult in many companies. We found a way to make it work, regardless of company size or industry.
Types of complex projects we support:
Business transformation – Whole business transformation, connecting the dots
Capability building – specifically suitable for large scale collaboration to drive circular economy implementation
DCP – recovering and securely delivering your most important projects
Interim management: Recover teams and business critical processes
