Options for Engagement

Intensive Intervention

5 days to 1 month

  • Identify Foundational Gaps: project dynamics, expectations vs true needs, and actual vs perceived outcomes
  • Outcome: a targeted roadmap prioritizing actions and decision making

Leveraging international expertise in an intensive manner is the essential first step towards achieving certainty across the three foundational areas crucial for project and organisational success: people and culture, systems and processes, and leadership and management.

Through a discovery assessment process, we delve into your project’s dynamics and challenges. It’s through this that we can discern between stakeholder expectations and true needs, pinpointing critical gaps across all three foundational areas essential for performance, productivity, and success.

With these insights we craft a next-steps actionable roadmap tailored to your unique needs outlining necessary decision making and prioritisation of immediate, medium, and long-term actions. This in turn enables you to plan when and how to address the identified gaps and maximise the opportunities for improvement.

By focusing on the foundational areas, you will end up with a way forward that will foster a culture of transparency, accountability, and high performance, setting the stage for your project and wider business to achieve the desired outcomes and effectively deliver on your company vision and strategy.

“I had the pleasure to work with Deanne as the Vendavo integration leader for Becton Dickinson’s strategic world-wide implementation of pricing analytics. The project was successfully delivered within a condensed timeframe following an Agile methodology. My experience with Deanne had been that she always acted with the customer in mind. She is a true partner to her client, willing to work shoulder to shoulder, gain trust, encourage collaboration and meet expectations. Deanne is an effective leader who understands how to blend cross-functional people into teams. She fostered open dialogue, removed roadblocks that impeded progress and defined success in terms of the whole team. I highly recommend Deanne and would gladly work with her again.”
