Are you delivering business value from projects on time and within budget?

Process transformation and IT Programmes enable business outcomes and can transform the way you work. They can also ruin your career and damage your organisation.

Research1 shows that on average IT and process change projects run over budget by 125%, run over schedule by 25% and deliver 29% less benefit than expected. More alarming is the fact that one in five of all IT projects are “Black Swans” that run more than 200% over cost and schedule.
