Successful projects don’t happen just by themselves, they need effective leadership as well as management. Leading successful projects requires:
Giving inspiration and direction
Building, facilitating and empowering an effective team
Coaching people to improve their performance, sustaining change
Developing and applying soft skills, mediating not confronting
Using the right leadership style for the situation, not “one size fits always”
We have extensive experience of leading successful change projects, and we help our clients’ staff in applying the same insights and disciplines.

Leadership and team-building: Case Study - NHS Website
When clinical software supplier InferMed Ltd won the prime contract for the NHS’s hi-tech new website, they asked Andrew Wright to lead the project.
Delivery target was just 6 months, half the time originally planned, and the people involved were spread geographically, with complex cultural and commercial relationships.
Delivery is really about people – in this case we forged a single team across all stakeholder groups and locations then motivated people to deliver very effectively.
