Programme Mobilisation

Setting a firm foundation for your programme’s success

A vital stage

Good programme mobilisation is the essential bridge between the strategy you’ve developed and the programmes that will deliver it. Done properly, project and programme mobilisation sets the foundations for you to flow your strategy through into your change programmes and keep your change programmes fully aligned to your strategy. We can help at this vital stage.

We know what it takes to turn a good idea into a successful programme that delivers.

You might think it doesn’t take much to set up for success. Maybe you believe you have the necessary experience in-house, or that you can find a systems integrator who will do it all for you. But by investing in the right expert help up front, you are far more likely to create and deliver the right programme, on time and to budget. The money you invest early to create a compelling proposition, engage with the right stakeholders and build a team that can deliver is far less than the amount you will have to spend further down the line on fixing any of these key elements at a later stage.

So what’s involved in getting your programme off to a good start?

It’s about:

Knowing what you want and why:

  • Having a robust strategic rationale and business case
  • Positioning the programme alongside other programmes and projects
  • Understanding how you will change the operating model
  • Having a coherent roadmap of clearly scoped initiatives

Gaining the support of key people:

  • Securing active sponsorship by your leaders
  • Engaging strongly with key stakeholders
  • Ensuring robust governance

Being able to deliver on your promises:

  • Understanding what skills and capabilities the team requires and how these will need to flex during the life of the programme
  • Structuring the team for maximum effectiveness
  • Embedding the right ways of working from the start
