Who we help
FTSE250 & global corporations
The people challenges are immense for complex businesses, operating at scale and across borders. When speed is of the essence a highly experienced interim programme management director can step in – be that as a safe pair of hands to see you through turbulent times, or as the driver of significant strategic change that transforms workforces or whole organisations.
Medium-sized enterprises / private equity portfolio companies
When businesses are scaling up or seeking efficiencies, people are central to success. An interim programme management director can enable the structural, cultural and behavioural change need to achieve rapid growth and faster value creation. Programme management interims also prove their worth in managing the myriad challenges of mergers and acquisitions.
Start-ups / venture capital-backed businesses
In the excitement of the start-up phase, programme management processes and strategy rarely get the attention they deserve. As the business matures, it can suddenly find itself with some very sticky people problems, especially in regulated sectors like fintech. An interim programme management director can put the right foundation in place at the start, from policies and procedures to organisational culture to recruitment & retention.
Public sector, 3rd sector & housing
The public sector faces the long-term challenge of doing more with less – with Brexit and COVID being complicated factors in the health and care sectors especially. Restructures, transformation and outsourcing all call for the proven programme management experience that an interim programme management director can deliver, including an understanding of unionised workforces and the opportunities for new ways of working and delivering frontline services.
