analysis and finance, project and program management

We have broad and deep analytic capability, including financial, economic, operational, and performance analysis, with particular expertise in social policy and human services.  Our finance and analysis team have demonstrated success in financial and economic analysis to inform decision making.  We have built complex economic models and written compelling business cases for a wide range of publicly funded organisations.   You can learn more about our areas of expertise on our resources page.

We specialise in portfolio, program, and project management (P3) models and practices, and we have successfully designed, implemented, reviewed, and improved P3 practices, project management offices and program management offices (PMOs) for a wide range of public sector clients.  We give advice and training in best practice methods, and coaching and mentoring for executives and staff working in portfolio, program, and project management roles.

We have helped organisations with established P3 processes to identify and implement strategies to improve their P3 maturity.  We have also helped organisations with little to no P3 experience design and implement:

  • processes and systems for planning, monitoring and reporting on projects and programs
  • standards and frameworks for project and program management
  • centres of excellence
  • activist PMOs
  • enterprise PMOs
  • rescue and recover of high stakes projects and programs.

Our approach to project management in public sector and publicly funded organisations recognises that most people managing projects in these organisations are not professional project managers.  With this in mind, we use light touch methods that integrate well with commonly used methodologies and tools to maximise benefits with minimum sufficient effort.
