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.

“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.”
