We’re not just bums on seats, we’re the best-suited people to serve your continuous
improvement needs. We work with you to understand requirements and then build a ‘Dream
Team’ with the necessary blend of skills and experiences required to deliver your objectives
Our diverse workforce of change and transformation specialists boasts extensive skills and
experience to solve the biggest challenges. Here are just some of our specialist expertise.
Project managers are responsible for the design, planning and day-to-day management of the project. Their role is to ensure the project is delivered on time, on budget and to quality to ensure all objectives are met. To achieve this, they have to manage resources, risks, issues, activities and stakeholders. They also have to report on progress regularly to the Project Sponsor and Project Board to ensure appropriate governance and traction.
It’s a tough job negotiating with stakeholders about each element of the equation, making decisions, staying laser-focused on the vision and spinning lots of plates – you could say they are a bit like a politician!
Change managers play a key role in ensuring that change projects and initiatives meet objectives by increasing employee adoption and utilisation of the newly implemented solutions. They focus on the people side of change – this involves preparing, supporting and equipping people for the changes that will impact them.
Change managers work through our proven change processes to ensure that change matters, change happens and that change sticks. They spend time upfront to ensure that they really understand what’s going on so that they can tailor strategies to make a positive, immediate and lasting impact. This pays dividends, as here at CI Projects, we hate the ‘one size fits all’ approach – in reality, one size fits no one!
LEAN SIX SIGMA PRACTITIONER
Lean Six Sigma Practitioners are known as the the problem solvers in the team. They lead efforts to design-out waste so that time is spent on the things that really matter – the things that add value to our customers. They also focus on reducing errors and variation in our processes to enable consistent delivery and optimal quality. They do this methodically by defining the problem and requirement, measuring performance, analysing root causes and identifying optimal improvements for implementation. After all that’s done, they implement effective controls to ensure any gains achieved are sustained. The work Lean Six Sigma Practitioners do leads to sustainable efficiencies, profitability and improved customer experience.
Don’t you just hate it when changes don’t stick? We sure do, that’s why our proven approach is the winning ingredient – it guarantees demonstrable benefits.
Unlike the Project Manager, Programme Managers don’t oversee just one project; they oversee various projects and other strategic initiatives that make up a wider programme. These groups of projects need to be coordinated so closely to ensure that benefits are achieved, dependencies are managed and that scope creep is avoided. Programme Managers often manage large teams of people and several stakeholders.
By bundling together a number of related projects into a programme, the benefits they deliver outweigh the benefits of managing the projects as individual units and the Programme Manager is able to keep their focus on the organisation’s overarching mission and goal.
Business Analysts love processing, interpreting and documenting solutions to business problems and always use a methodical and evidence-based approach. They analyse existing processes, systems and data to get under the skin of the problem, understand the causes of the problem and identify requirements and solutions.
You could say they are like a bridge – they bridge the gap between different teams and develop cohesive and easy-to-understand recommendations.
Data Analysts collect, organise and study data to provide business insights. They have a vast number of tools and techniques up their sleeves to aid data analysis and visualisation. Data Analysts love using statistical analysis, algebra, calculus… I guess you could call them mathematical geniuses!
PMO Managers have oversight of all projects and programmes across the organisation and set clear and consistent standards to enable economies of repetition in the execution of projects. They play an important role in coordinating and governing projects, and in facilitating the transparency of information needed to make optimal decisions.
PMO Managers often see competing priorities, finite resources and insufficient insights needed to accelerate strategic goals and realise benefits – so they come to the rescue by providing independent expert advice, assurance and absolute transparency of change initiatives.
