PMO / Project setup and operations
A Project Management Office (PMO) acts as a central hub for the enterprise, ensuring all the entities involved with the project have their needs, demands, and requirements satisfied. The PMO contributes to increase the maturity level of your company’s project management, making sure that processes run smoothly, and increasing the likelihood of successful project completion.
Whether your organisation needs a devoted team or already has a PMO that is under-performing, MAC Consulting can help. Our experts can establish (or optimise an already existing PMO) to a tailored solution that is responsive and flexible, able to achieve even the most demanding of organisational strategic goals. Our PMO solutions are known in the market to be reliable and effective as we operate one for ourselves to help with the projects we deliver for some of the biggest brands on the planet.
Agile for Projects
We assist organisations to be more flexible, and intensely customer-focused. Our experienced team helps you scale Agile across your entire organisation to improve organisational efficiency. We provide exceptional coaching and support, instilling Agile capabilities and expertise throughout your company to ensure your organisation continues to reap the benefits of Agile long after we have left. With Agile stitched into the fabric of your company’s culture, you will remain nimble and responsive to changing market conditions for many years to come.
Agile project management methodology – with its greater adaptability to frequently changing environments – uses iterative or phased planning and continuous integration. The key principle is to keep the project scope soft.
Business Case / Benefits Realisation
Successful transformations are underpinned by a comprehensive and robust business case and robust financial management, which combine human ingenuity, experience, and technological innovation to deliver sustained outcomes and to build trust.
MAC supports organisations to create robust business cases which articulate and support the case for transformation programmes and have a clear framework for benefits realisation. Furthermore, we also help organisations to implement a suitable financial management process for transformations.
We assist organisations to:
- Create or review a business case for transformation programmes.
- Evaluate the different options that the business case should consider.
- Create a benefits realisation framework.
Ultimately, we map the definition, planning, structuring and actual realisation of the benefits of a business change or business improvement project.
The reasons are varied, but a great deal is due to:
- Business cases focussing on target savings only, instead of expressing business benefits in a manner that can be clearly understood and implemented.
- A poor definition of the business goals of projects.
- Too much emphasis placed on deliverables or capabilities, which on their own do not result in specific benefits.
MAC partners with you to mitigate these roadblocks, delivering enduring value and sustainable growth.
