Home > Services > Preparing for Brexit
Following the UK election, we can now expect the UK to leave the EU in early 2020. However, reaching the exit agreement and getting clarity on future trade deals will take much longer and businesses will need to continue to navigate a period of uncertainty. This creates a dilemma for leadership teams as to how they prepare and adapt to the challenges ahead.
While the full implications are unlikely to be clear in the near term, as part of your readiness preparations you may be looking at your strategic priorities, considering changes to your operating model and reviewing your business operations and processes. All this, while still pursuing large scale programmes to support the growth of your business.
No business will be immune to the impacts of Brexit - it will bring both opportunity and challenge to how companies operate across Europe. To quickly get a flavour of the sorts of questions you should be considering in relation to Brexit and the possible next steps for your company, try our online Brexit Health Check.
Our core offerings help organisations position themselves to deal with the uncertainty, while ensuring they have enough flexibility to adapt and redirect if required.
Delivering change at scale is always difficult, but in our view taking a strategic approach to portfolio management can help organisations ensure that the changes driven by Brexit are managed and prioritised in an integrated, transparent way, while making effective use of scarce resources and minimising risk.

We support organisations to ensure their programmes are set up for success by playing a programme assurance role. We bring deep experience that has been hard earned on large scale and complex programmes, which means we know what to look for, what to ask and how to lay the foundations for success.
With over 70% private sector transformation projects failing to deliver*, the added complexity of changing regulatory and legal requirements means that programme oversight and control becomes even more important for senior leaders.
