Our delivery capabilities our wide and varied. We are experts in asset management, strategy execution and business plan delivery. We also implement the tools and techniques to ensure a successful delivery. Our staff possess vast knowledge and experience across a broad spectrum of industries and we can support requests for interim staff from the shop floor, right through to director and c-suite level. Our key areas of expertise in delivery include:

Strategy Execution / Hoshin Kanri

Many businesses are excellent at producing glossy business plans, with Vision, Mission, Objectives etc, but all too often fail in executing the delivery of that plan.

Hoshin Kanri is a form of strategy or policy deployment which originated in Japan and is now used world-wide in progressive companies such as Toyota, Hewlett Packard, and Xerox.  Translated it means ‘Compass Needle / Direction’ and ‘Management / Control’, and fundamentally is a process which helps organisations cascade their strategic vision down into specific actions across all levels of the organisation, and then execute the delivery of that plan.

HSW are experts in Hoshin Kanri and can help your organisation successfully deliver its business plan through implementing robust systems to manage delivery and measure success.

Performance Management

There are many approaches to performance management, MBO (management by objectives), OGSM (objectives, goals, strategies, measures), OKRs (objectives and key results), and Balanced Score Card (BSC), to name but a few.

We have extensive expertise in developing and implementing performance management frameworks to meet your business needs and can also support these with tried and tested methods such as Visual Management or Obeya rooms. Alternatively, we also offer a range of more modern software solutions.

Portfolio, Programme & Project Management & Recovery

Whether you are running a small bespoke business change project or a £multi-million infrastructure investment portfolio, HSW have the skills and expertise to support your successful delivery to cost and on time.

We specialise in the recovery of failing projects and programmes, applying robust governance frameworks and processes to drive out waste and recover performance.

We can supply individuals or whole teams. From programme directors, through to planners, PMO managers and project admin staff. All our people are qualified and experienced across recognised project management practices such as OGC’s MSP and PRINCE2 and APMP Professionals.
