We stand shoulder to shoulder with our clients and transform their business alongside them, every step of the way. That’s real specialism: a modern consulting approach, delivering change fit for the companies of tomorrow.

Expertise

Back the right ideas

Success starts with selecting the right ideas. We align your investment budget with your long-term strategic vision, then design the right structures to ensure you’re ready to discover and implement the right solutions across your organisation. And as an independent, we’re vendor agnostic – so we can concentrate on ideas that are right for you, not what drives profit for us.

Set up for success

Programmes need careful planning to ensure every penny is used wisely and every hour carefully spent. Our rigorous approach offers stakeholders confidence in their investment and brings clarity to even the most complicated portfolio. And before we press ‘go’, we mobilise all the right resources to ensure the opening salvo of your change programme sets the tone for the whole process.

Excellent Execution

Even the best laid plans can’t run on their own. They need careful management by professionals to keep everything on track and manage inevitable bumps in the road. Our consultants have decades of experience to deliver within budget and on time. We build robust and powerful processes from the ground up to suit your needs and that can accelerate or slow as you need them to – a truly flexible model.

Reap the Rewards

Implementing change is only half the battle. Success is in real benefits. We hard-wire them in by starting early – providing training from the planning stages onwards, ruthlessly testing systems throughout and managing the go-live process so that nothing is left behind, and disruption minimised. It all guarantees that project outcomes meet the needs of your organisation now and in the future.

We apply just the right amount of process for each project however this matched with a proven flow and structure ensures on-time, on-budget delivery for every client. Click below to see how the component building blocks of our expertise fit together for world-class end-to-end transformation.

“We initially engaged P2 Consulting to help establish more effective programme controls, and to give support in the creation of budget estimates and delivery timescales. They worked collaboratively alongside the JL team to engage with all key stakeholders and create a reliable baseline for the Programme. P2 Consulting were then engaged to run the Programme’s ‘engine room’ responsible for planning, reporting, RAID management and controls as well as the appointment of an overall Programme Lead. Since then the Programme achieved a great deal, with P2 Consulting providing some notable Best in Class individuals.”
