With services based on extensive experience developing solutions and solving problems for a wide variety of clients up to and including board level strategic direction and support.
Our Service Scope Includes:
Examples of Support Approaches Include:
Independent Health Reviews and Problem Diagnosis
An independent view is sometimes worth far more than a closed internal analysis. We can all be subject to group think. Getting someone who is truly independent to take a look at your situation and provide an honest assessment is sometimes worth its weight in gold.
If this sounds like your situation we bring a vast experience of entering organisations and honestly and objectively assessing the current situation, from project reviews and on up to board level strategic direction. Our independent situation reviews will help keep your business operations, and projects and programmes on track.
Interim Management Support for Projects and Programmes
By their very nature projects and programmes of work are (or should be!) transient. Organisations don’t always either retain fixed headcount to manage all of their projects or programmes or have the level of experience necessary in certain specific areas meaning work gets delayed or the quality slips.
If you find yourself in this situation our support will be invaluable. We have provided senior interim management support for technology acquisition and outsourced supply chain projects and programmes for some of the worlds most successful companies and on some of the worlds largest projects.
Construction of Project Management Plans and Documentation
Straightforward fit for purpose effective plans and documentation are an absolute requirement to deliver effective projects. Sometimes the ‘paperwork’ becomes all encompasing and a job to manage in itself, or conversly is sadly lacking in its structure and content to be anywhere near as effective as it can be.
When you find your projects are bogged down or wandering uncontrolably due to either lack of, or overabundance of, ‘paperwork’ We have the experience to quickly and effectively create concise, controlling, governance, and day to day management documentation for you getting things back on track.
Construction of Programme Structures and Documentation
To be effective programmes of work need effective governance and control. Attempting to structure and manage programmes as projects creates all kinds of problems. From confusion over who decides what, to project management controlling the programme itself.
If this sounds like your programme we can construct and provide appropriate controls for you. Creating order and management amongst the potential chaos.
Supply Chain Management and Contract Construction
The vast majority of business operations and technically led projects rely today on external suppliers to provide products and services. Client organisations sometimes don’t retain the necessary skills and experience to effectively manage the sometimes pushy and even forceful suppliers in- house. The result is that control is lost, costs escalate, and quality is compromised.
If this sounds like your supply chain David Cox Consulting can help. We have developed techniques for constructing contracts and effectively managing some of the worlds largest technology supply chain organisations.
Contract Negotiation and Conflict Resolution
Unfortunately sometimes things do go wrong between you and your suppliers. Deadlines keep getting missed, solutions are misinterpereted, costs escallate and confusion reigns. Without resolution the situation will only escalate, but there is a solution.
I can help you both to get back on the path. I vast experience resolving and remedying technology supply chain disputes involving contracts to over £1/2 billion. Using my independent support and conflict resolution techniques there is no reason your technology programme cannot be put back on track to a successful conclusion.
