Resilience Enhancing

Every project is unique—there's always something that's different, otherwise it wouldn't be a project.

During heightened periods of vulnerability, we bring proven tools and techniques to your project, temporarily increasing your ability to spot and capture unpredictable risks. You can thus deal with them early, before they materially impact the outcome of the project or contribute to value-eroding effects on the project—the dreaded ‘death by a thousand cuts’.

Many organizations consider their risk register as ‘job done’. But you need to actively reduce the likelihood of the risks identified during Peak PRM of materializing. We therefore boost your project management and control organization with project-specific risk control, whose mitigation processes and measures temporarily improve the capability of your project team to meet the specific demands of your project.

It’s the interfaces, stupid

Communications are vital to align all stakeholders but it’s too easily overlooked, especially as your organization scales. When our clients start managing multiple concurrent projects, interface management is the biggest risk we see them encounter. It’s less the engineering side and more the integration between contractors. We give you a controlling process that gives you a consistent outcome and cuts costs.

Don’t wait to contact us until things are slipping or something goes wrong. The larger the program, the greater the consequences. Misalignment leads to project delays, wasted costs, costly disputes and, ultimately, to reputational damage. If your gut’s telling you to take a deeper look at what’s going on, it’s probably right. Call us in and you’ll feel more certain, even when the heat is on.

Better governance with PRIMA

Our clients all operate in heavily regulated industries. When you use our PRIMA method, you can ensure you’re complying with standards. And while some may say it’s better to have double standards than none at all, we disagree. When you grow your team, you often import processes with the people. You can end up with a web that needs untangling. We bring the rigour you need to streamline your process.
