Fix a troubled project or program?​

Sometimes things go wrong. The problem is that no matter why they’re going wrong sometimes they have to be made right, quickly, quietly and effectively. RNC started as a specialist in righting projects, programs and portfolios that for whatever reason were struggling. It’s become our trademark and our reputation has been built on it. Fixing failing projects takes a higher-order skill, it’s a specialist area and we work hard to attract people who are really good at it. If you’re experiencing the below your project is starting to fail.

Your project is running late?

Why? If your PM says “We’re going to make it!” without good reason you’re in trouble…

You don't feel in control?

Are project decision rights clear? Are the right people making the important decisions?

No clarity into the project?

Dynamic Governance is required. You need information that tells you where you’re going, why that’s predicted and what’s needed from you to make it so.

Your instinct says there's something wrong?

If you feel something is wrong there probably is something wrong, but we bet you won’t be able to work it out from the reports you’re getting or the assurances of your PM.

Something just does not feel right?

Can your Project Manager tell you in 30 seconds what they’re doing and why? If not, you have a problem

Want to see results without the drama?

You need the right people with the right skills to get the job done right

How can we help?

Advice on what is needed and best approaches

RNC specialises in helping clients get the outcome they want from in flight and proposed projects. We do this by consulting and advising on the three elements of project success:

The Right Projects

The Right Methods

The Right Skills

Is the project really ok?

RNC can review inflight projects, programs and portfolios and suggest (and implement) changes.

Are we using the right tools?

There is no perfect project management software or method. We can help you pick the right one (or even a hybrid approach) for your project.

Need the project to succeed?

Dynamic Governance is required. You need information that tells you where you’re going, why that’s predicted and what’s needed from you to make it so.

What information do I need so I’m confident?

Dynamic Governance is required. You need information that tells you where you’re going, why that’s predicted and what’s needed from you to make it so.

What is the best structure for my project?

There is no one “best” project structure. We can help you select the right one for your project.

What’s the difference between a Project and a Program Manager?

Projects Managers drive a single outcome, Program Managers multiple. To be successful as a Program Manager you have to be a systems thinker, have courage, and instinct.

What is a PMO/EPMO?

A Strategy Project Management Office assesses projects against strategy and supports standard project execution. An Admin PMO provides support to projects and programs.

Do we need a PMO?

An industry focused on administration and backward-looking updates has developed around PMOs. It doesn’t have to be so. Call us before you green light the set up.

What do all those titles mean?

Check out our terminology page for a simple guide to project terminology.

How can we help?​

Let's make it happen.

We provide project, program and portfolio administrators, managers and directors to deliver your outcomes. We match the role to the skills, qualifications and experience of our resources to ensure clients receive the right person to deliver their outcome.

RNC believes in using the tools and methods to support execution. We do not believe that blind dedication, commitment, devotion and adherence to any particular process, method or tool is a guarantee of success.

All RNC people are multilingual in the major (and many of the minor) project, program and portfolio methods and tools. We’re multilingual and multicultural across industries, domains and project types. We can, and do, work with whatever methods and tools your organisation uses. That way, we fit in more easily, can get going more quickly, and don’t cause you any ‘justification of variation’ problems.

“If you don’t have a method or tools we can help you pick one, quickly and efficiently for your project. There is no need to reinvent the wheel”.

Want it delivered but not by upsetting anyone?

We can’t guarantee happy but we make it as pleasant and acceptable as possible by matching the right person to your company culture to reduce conflict and improve all- round performance.

Do you want the outcome not just the process?​

RNC people know process and procedure and tools are important but not as important as client outcomes

Administration or Execution​?

Execution first. RNC people work with tools and methods but never let them be considered an end in themselves. Administration is essential, it’s just not the reason for the project.

It will be audited so it has to be compliant​

We have extensive experience in regulated and controlled environments. We’ll always ensure your project complies – and we’ll still get the job done.

Give me the truth and information that I need.​

Dynamic Governance is required. You need information that tells you where you’re going, why that’s predicted and what’s needed from you to make it so.

What role do I need to play?

You need to have the vision to get something done, and the willingness and ability to get support and resources

How can I be confident I will get my outcome?

You need to provide focus on the project, receive clarity on what is happening and exert control over the project
