Consulting – Risk Management
Risks and uncertainties surround all projects; it is how we address them that really makes a difference. We’re at our most satisfied when we’ve helped you assess and manage risks and uncertainties or turned them into opportunities. Our proudest moments come from knowing that our direct action has helped you achieve a successful outcome.
Meticulous planning and a structured and disciplined approach to risk and opportunity management supports effective decision making, risk mitigation and opportunity maximisation even in the most complex business challenges. We work closely with our clients to identify potential risks and opportunities, establish comprehensive strategies for the most cost effective treatment, including contingencies, and set up refined processes to monitor and report against them.
We take a disciplined approach to risk management, aligning strategy, process, people, technology and knowledge to identify, assess and manage the key uncertainties and potential risks and opportunities that may impact clients’ objectives. We reach beyond the traditional risk management of financial and insurable hazards by pro-actively seeking to identify all possible risks and opportunities to provide the confidence level and transparency that our clients demand.

ETL and Data Warehousing – Major components of project control systems include ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) as well as storing, analysing and reporting data from different sub-systems. Implementing a data warehouse allows for optimal data reporting and analysis. Even with the necessary infrastructure, managing ETL and data warehousing in-house can be expensive and challenging. As part of our managed services solution, we offer ETL and Data warehouse outsourcing solutions, improving your operational efficiency and bringing costs down.
Project Controls Solution Design- We work with you to create, implement and manage workable project control solutions tailored to your business needs. Our specialists have been providing a range of project control and program management services for decades. Through collaboration, training and a thorough understanding of processes and procedures, we consistently provide quality services that lead to project success.
Project Controls Maturity Assessment – The current business environment is harsh and competition is fierce. The pressure to deliver projects successfully, on time, and within budget has never been greater. The pressure to deliver to tighter, continuous deadlines leaves project control professionals with no time to evaluate their work, making it essential to get things right the first time. We have developed a specific metric to easily assess project control performance which measures an organisation’s performance on a scale of one to ten, indicating the project control maturity level.
Business and Data Analysis – We fully understand how critical business and data analysis is for any business. We believe business analysis helps organisation underline their issues and opportunities. This all starts with identifying business requirements. We begin by aligning ourselves with your business and its vision. We take the time to understand the impact of change on your organisation before modelling new processes, defining requirements, and measuring progress.
We provide the following services in this area:
