ABOUT US

about

What do these world class organisations have in common?

Johnson & Johnson, Alpharma, Amersham Biosciences, Arjo Wiggins, Christofle/LBDe, WH Smith Business Supplies/Niceday, Sun Life Assurance of Canada, Dun & Bradstreet, Rank Xerox, TSB Trust Company, Hambro Life Assurance, SavaCentre, British Credit Trust… to name but a few.

They have all used our services to help bring order to challenging situations, full of complexity and ambiguity.

What we do

We are different, very different!

You see, we enjoy helping to solve complex project problems and challenges... particularly those associated with large-scale, global and regional EMEA based Compliance (such as GDPR and Brexit), Systems Integration, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Implementation, Business Intelligence (BI), Merger & Acquisition (M&A), Business and Digital Transformation initiatives.

We use our extensive real-world experience to identify what can be improved or delivered and then, if required, work with you to implement the changes; this means you quickly get back (or stay) on track and still deliver against previously agreed or revised expectations.

For over thirty years we have been helping senior executives cope with complex organisational change, in diverse organisations right across the EMEA region... quite often as part of a regional European or global Team.

Our Senior Partner, Robert Toogood, is an independent project, systems and risk expert who has recently been awarded an MSc in Risk Management (Distinction). He is also a member of the Project Management Institute (PMI), International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA), and Association for Project Management (APM). This enables him to keep up-to-date with the latest thinking and developments relating to projects, systems and risk. He is currently preparing for formal Certified Information Privacy Technologist (CIPT) recognition from IAPP of his expertise in the area of data privacy and protection.

Since May 2016, he has been investigating various ways in which he can help his clients achieve efficient compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation.  His initial research and ongoing activities in this area has exposed him to many different methodologies, tools and techniques which he has been able to evaluate in more detail.  This specialist knowledge, combined with his recent MSc Risk Management (Distinction) achievements and over ten years data protection related project management experience, makes him a strong candidate for helping clients with their GDPR and Brexit challenges.

In support of our growing interest in GDPR, we have now launched DATA-Tight... a new consultancy service, specifically aimed at helping organisations cope with the increasing amount of complex legislation relating to data protection and privacy.  By leveraging our extensive real-world programme management experience and expertise, our clients benefit from a bespoke advisory service which will help them to comply with the legislation in a more tightly co-ordinated and cost efficient way.

How we do it

When working with clients, we use our five-step ORDER™ approach to help them with their problems and challenges. As part of this approach, we focus on the effective use of real-life experience and international best practice, through a pragmatic and sensitive application of this knowledge aligned with the unique needs of each client.

We passionately care about our clients' problems and challenges, and work in partnership with and not in isolation from them. We don't impose pre-conceived solutions, and take time to properly understand the context in which they operate.

All of this enables us to provide a personal service that is independent, confidential and totally flexible.

How we can help

We bring order to organisational change; in particular, we love the uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity you always find in these environments ... we troubleshoot and particularly relish fixing organisational things that are broken and need mending. 

Clients have previously looked for help with:

TURNAROUND: recovering strategic initiatives failing to deliver on expectations;

ASSURANCE: reviewing effectiveness of key activities to ensure fit for purpose;

IMPLEMENTATION: organising more effectively to implement change;

SUPPORT: achieving full potential during period of significant change or challenge;

RESEARCH: finding out more about some new or existing area of interest.

We enjoy our work and hope you will too!
