Our Experience

We have worked on a range of projects across many diverse sectors. Here are a few examples of our current and recent work:

  • We provided an Interim CIO for Wessex Water, supporting them through an internal transformation process, and at the same time as developing a strategic investment programme and improving the capabilities of their IT team.
  • We shaped the programme and supported supplier selection for the University’s of Sussex’s student and academic administration transformation programme.
  • We helped manufacturer Xaar by providing independent IT delivery assurance around a significant ERP investment decision. Our involvement prevented them from making a costly mistake and quickly allowed them to create a firm foundation for IT that would support their continued organisational growth.
  • We have supported Palatine, the Private Equity firm, with acquisition advice through conducting Operational Due Diligence (ODD) reviews.  Developing an ODD Toolkit we applied a strategic lens across core areas including Process, Organisation, Technology and Information of the potential aquisition to identify core areas critical for the success of the bids and strategic drivers to focus on post-acquisition to enable success.
  • We supported Allen & Overy, an international law firm providing legal services for global business and industry, through undertaking a review of their existing Operating Model. We established opportunities to create a global footprint and reduce IT operating costs.
