Consulting Services

Organisations often lack the necessary resources to undertake key activities to design and implement change. We provide the skills and experience to support our clients as they identify and design the required change. We use our TCMM© methodology to help you evaluate your current capability and capacity, and track your progress.

Key Features

  • Business Design – When organisations need to adapt to change they look to design their new Target Operating Model and then implement that model. We support developing that design with business-leading Architecture Frameworks, Business Process Design and Capability Assessments.
  • Strategic Portfolio Management – Portfolio management ensures that an organisation can leverage its project selection and execution success. It refers to the centralised management of one or more project portfolios to achieve strategic objectives. Our research has shown that portfolio management is a way to bridge the gap between strategy and implementation.
  • Change Capability and Capacity Assessment – Having the right type and amount of human resources, tools and infrastructure available to support the change is critical to success. We help you assess your current capability and capacity against the change plans, clearly describing and enumerating gaps. (See our Transformation Capability Maturity Model©)

Benefits

  • Optimised Business Design
  • Capability Gap Analysis
  • Functional mapping across enterprise systems
  • Information mastering across enterprise systems
  • Managing transition risks, including to Cloud-based systems
  • Agile, flexible, cost-effective approach to service planning and design

Strategic Portfolio Management

Strategic Portfolio Management is the analysis and decision-making process regarding strategic initiatives for a business.We design and implement a Programme & Portfolio Management Capability providing tailored Processes and Standards based on industry-leading templates. We work with our Clients to establish the critical support for effective change delivery – balancing the need for oversight, visibility and assurance against the need for momentum and impact. In support of the Programme & Portfolio Management Capability we will implement a technology solution to track and manage Programmes and Projects and enable the decision-making process.

This can be a solution that your organisation is trained to take on and continue to run, or this can be provided as Portfolio Management as a Service (PfMaaS).

Key Features

  • Portfolio/Programme Office Review – We examine current arrangements and offer clear evidence-based action plans for improvement, aligning with best practice P3MO design.
  • Portfolio/Programme Office Design and Implementation – At Momentum Partners we are clear that the Portfolio Office should have a distinct and different role from individual PMOs used to support Programmes, aligning clearly with organisational work and capability in the strategy, business planning and governance arenas. We help our clients establish a consistent and cost-effective model for Programme Management Offices. All our work is underpinned by our understanding of the importance of effective planning, reporting, collaboration and workflow toolsets.
  • Change Method Assessment – Our approach brings clear recommendations and an action plan to take existing approaches to change, integrate them, fill in the gaps, make responsibilities clearer, improve key artefacts and align properly to governance.
  • Understanding Digital and Agile – This range of approaches to developing software, managing change, and providing alternate approaches to waterfall delivery methods offers potential advantages and brings significant challenges to visibility, coordination and control. We help our clients understand when and how it is appropriate to use these approaches, and how to combine them with traditional programme and project methodologies.
  • Operational Performance Compliance Review and Plan – We help our clients assess the degree to which the operational performance of a business area has changed to meet the objectives set out in the business case for change. Where there are gaps, we recommend actions required to bring performance to the required level.

Benefits

  • Optimised delivery decisions
  • Functional mapping across enterprise systems
  • Information mastering across enterprise systems
  • Investments prioritisation and sequencing across enterprise systems
  • Managing transition risks, including to Cloud-based systems
  • Agile, flexible, cost-effective approach to service planning and design

Programme and Project Delivery

Most businesses are in transition, never more so than when considering their IT estate or when responding to business challenges. Migration from traditional legacy infrastructure and services to the Cloud and Digital technologies needs to be undertaken without disruption to business as usual and at pace in what is often a complex and multi-layered mission-critical environment. Moving to Cloud-based technologies can help reduce costs, but this change needs to go hand in hand with evaluating your processes and your organisation design,

We will help develop a management environment that encompasses all aspects of delivery to ensure effective benefits realisation, change management and management of risk, driven by your business needs and risk appetite.

Change Management

In any Change Initiative staff engagement and learning is critical to the successful delivery of programmes and projects. However, these activities too often get side-lined or the change is not fully embedded. We work with clients to put in place a wide range of engagement activities ensuring effective action-oriented learning.

Features

  • Stakeholder Engagement Assessment – We help our Clients undertake an assessment of the current ways in which they engage stakeholders and analyse whether these arrangements are fit for purpose during the change initiative
  • Stakeholder Engagement Plan – Our approach is focused on identifying those individuals whose influence on the success of a change initiative is such that they need specific attention from members of the leadership team. We believe that short sharp action-oriented plans are of much greater value than traditional stakeholder plans which are, too often, unusable.
  • Critical Success Factors Analysis – Any major change effort needs to identify those factors which are likely to lead to success (or the lack of them to failure). We help our clients identify common factors at the Organisational Portfolio level and specific/unique factors for individual programmes and projects.
  • Critical Success Factors Alignment and Action Plan – Once the key factors have been identified, these need to be aligned to existing actions being taken at the appropriate level, gaps identified, and specific actions developed to close these. Tracking of these indicators – through reporting activities at the Portfolio, Programme and Project levels – is put in place.
  • Lessons Learned Implementation Plan – As phases/stages of Programmes and Projects close, we help our clients ensure that “lessons learned” exercises are put in place and their findings harvested and ploughed back into Governance and Assurance activities.

Benefits

  • Early identification of Critical Success Factors leading to preventative planning
  • Value add stakeholder planning and engagement, focused on most critical relationships and timing of engagement
  • Learning distilled and reused across whole Portfolio of change effort
  • Risk and cost reduction
  • Benefits realisation activities optimised

Our approach to supporting adoption of change uses industry leading Business Change Management techniques. We work with your organisation to design, implement and evaluate the change process.

We provide a service to assess your business’ capability to absorb change and mature, particularly around the capacity and capability to improve project and programme delivery that uses our TCMM© framework.
