We provide on-demand data & information expertise, from small engagements such as some advice or mentoring, through to larger scale programme delivery. We can help you solve your data and information problems.

How can we help?

Review & Audit

Most engagements start here, perhaps:

  • You know you need to do something but don't know where to start?

  • You want to know how your current capabilities compare to others / the market?

  • You want to make sure you are not missing any opportunities to maximise the value of data & analytics within your business?

  • You have invested but don't know if the project is on-track or what to do next?

If so, we can help. Our proven review framework can be tailored to suit your business and the problem(s) you are seeking to understand and solve. The framework drives a systematic and comprehensive review of:

  • Business value & Use cases (What problems are you trying to solve and why? What other opportunities exist?)

  • Data governance

  • Data technology & architecture

  • People & processes

  • Operating model and its effectiveness

With the outputs typically forming the ingredients required to develop a Strategy & Roadmap.

Strategy & roadmap

Often an initial Review & Audit leads to the need to develop a longer term strategy and/or an actionable short term roadmap OR perhaps you already know what your issues are and just need help devising and communicating the right strategy.

We can help by:

  • Aligning data strategy to business strategy

  • Providing credible and trusted change leadership

  • Developing a business case for change and investment

  • Developing and communicating an understandable, achievable and flexible plan or roadmap for change.

But of course a strategy & plan is no good without execution and Delivery.
