Welcome to Unlike Before

Programme, Project and Change Consulting,
Management and Delivery

Unlike Before specialises in effecting change in business operations by evaluating, shaping and implementing business focused technology programmes and projects.

We do this by:

  • Challenging the status quo;
  • Energising the pace of change;
  • Being technology and project methodology agnostic;
  • Involving operations early for smoother transition; and
  • Delivering outcomes that align with strategic direction.

Whether we are engaged in a consulting or delivery capacity, we start by understanding what’s working now and where the biggest challenges are. Then we work together with our clients’ project and operations people to help them succeed.

Established in 2004 Unlike Before is the operating company of independent professional Deanne Earle. Working with  clients around the globe we provide:

  • Programme and Project Leadership and Management;
  • Project-led organisational change;
  • Service Transition and Management;
