Services we offer

The services offered range from short pieces of consulting of just a few days’ duration through to full-time longer-term project or line management roles lasting several months.

Some of the services are for a fixed-fee - e.g. a project definition workshop or a project health check - and others are on a time and materials basis. SS01 Services Summary Flyer.

They are grouped under three main headings:

1. Project management.

2. Line management (interim manager).
