In many instances off the shelf training courses don’t meet the needs of organisations. Your business needs are individual and therefore you may want to tailor your Programme and Project Management approaches to meet your needs.

We have worked with a number of organisations assisting them in either updating or developing a bespoke Project Management approach to meet their needs. This has been done by blending principles and practices from a number of standard approaches (such as MSP, Prince2 or DSDM’s Agile Project Management, Scrum) to ensure that they have an approach that works for them.

Working with clients we’ll facilitate workshops to enable the key stakeholders to participate in the development of the solution, making use of iterative development and demonstrations to ensure that we can adapt and change the proposals as required.

The Project Management Handbook was re-developed within the Sharepoint portal to provide an interactive web-guide that reflected the new Project Lifecycle that the council are working to. The site was redesigned to lead you through to the detail if you need it, but can be read at a higher level if not.
A quick reference guide was introduced into the Project Management Handbook, providing a one page reference guide enabling users to then click through to the guidance on each of the stages if required.
J Ridley, North Yorkshire County Council
Jude created a user-friendly window onto our project management and governance process, by developing a bespoke solution utilising a Sharepoint platform used by the Trust.
The knowledge of developing services and the best approaches and tools to support this were appreciated. It was really helpful to know that the work remained as the focus of attention, rather than relying on the in-house staff who may not be able to maintain a commitment due to the many operational challenges.
It was a pleasure to work with Jude, and to tap into her enthusiasm to make a real contribution.

Peter Tindall, North Tees & Hartlepool NHS FT
IT-Howzat developed our website, including drafting the content by extracting information from a selection of our corporate documents.
This enabled us to finally move forward and create our website, as Jude was able to spend time creating the content as well as the website structure.

Vicky Melchor, Natural Synergies
Jude ran a session with my MSc Project Management students to provide them with case study examples from industry to explain to them how different organisations have tailored Prince2 to create bespoke Project Management approaches.
