Strategy advice and financial analysis at start of a business efficiency review

Our public sector client was undertaking an efficiency review and developing its sourcing strategy. It's key need was to understand addressable spend for its corporate services, including shared service centre and wider IT operations.

This Partners worked with the client to review and confirm the overall vision, strategy and objectives of its corporate services efficiency review programme. This Partners also undertook a financial analysis of related costs and assisted with situation analysis including stakeholder survey questionnaire development. Survey responses were evaluated - both objectively and subjectively - prior to the development of the summary analysis.

Following This Partners assistance, the client had effectively documented its objectives, scope, key deliverables and other parameters for the delivery phase of its programme, had sufficient understanding of related costs for the project's basecase and had completed a stakeholder survey which enabled it to proceed with confidence.
