The lack of a talent and succession agenda in the business did not allow them to identify future talent and get them ready quickly to support growth plans. Additionally, the organisation was preparing itself for stock market floatation and it was recognised that talent and succession would be an important element of the IPO process.

    Problem Solved: Designed and provided leaders with practical training in utilising bespoke talent tools that gave structure around identifying and developing talent and succession. This allowed them to complete their talent potential matrices for their teams and input into the succession plan for their respective areas. This approach afforded a standardised approach across the company that directly supported a successful market floatation and directly contributed to double digit increase in engagement scores in 2 years.

    The challenge:There was a pressing need to change the culture of this energy Plc organization business from R&D / engineering excellence to delivery of commercially viable engineering solutions to meet clients’ needs. Demanding client expectations were not being met as technical solutions were unclear. And multiple projects competed internally for finite resources (funding, design input and management support) without clear priorities and design direction.

    Problem solved: Our priority was to consolidate all change initiatives into a transition plan and rigorously lead and manage the process to initiate the culture change required. To optimise the Project Management Teams’ performance, we evaluated and restructured the Programme Delivery function. Additional permanent and interim project managers had to be recruited and integrated in technical teams. Working with the MD and COO, we aligned the allocation of highly technical resources to project teams. To drive the shift toward delivery led by project management, rather than specialist engineering, we put in place a robust review and reporting process to prioritise new projects. This also managed the activity inflow to avoid resource conflict, as we instilled a culture of inter-departmental collaboration. Meanwhile, at Board level, I was able to challenge the directors to prioritise the commercial and technical viability of long-term projects, so that some were rationalised in favour of others. The Board and all stakeholders endorsed the revised strategy. Our recommendations for commercialising projects were agreed and implemented. Projects selected through the new process are meeting client requirements, and running on time and on budget. Team dynamics have greatly improved. Now led by a former project manager, the entire team of project managers, business development and operations managers are motivated to deliver the business plan.

    The Challenge: To ensure the success of a partially complete first-generation outsourcing bid for the Management of the Facilities and Estate of the Ministry of Defence’s British Forces in Germany. On arrival, the bid for this £250m contract was failing to meet key company objectives. At the same time preparations needed to be made to compete for the outsourcing of maintenance of the full MoD UK estate, a package worth more than £1bn per annum, and also to deliver organic growth by winning incremental work as part of a strategy to expand into other adjacent non-MoD markets.

    Problem solved: First priority was to rescue the late-stage failing bid by taking direct leadership of the bid team and implementing robust bid management and governance processes. Engaging closely with consultants and strategic supply chain partners, we then renewed the bid team’s solutions and cost models. It was necessary to restructure the extensive Business Development, Commercial Support and Bid Teams (comprising 30+ staff). Having also modified our FM service model, we subsequently won a new £15m contract, trialling the processes and models. In preparation for the MoD next-generation estates contract, we further refined our methodology and built the team structure to bid the multiple tranches using a variation of best practice MSP (Managing Successful Projects) and PMO (Project Management Office) methodology and protocols To shape future strategy, we undertook a comprehensive review to rationalise the company’s sector focus for growth in the medium term. Our interventions recovered the German estates bid and we won this £250m contract. A further three incremental FM bids, each worth £10m-plus, were also successful. The Main Group Board approved the proposed bid methodology and protocols. Our strategy for growth was also accepted and subsequently funded by the Group Board.
