CASE STUDY: SET-UP OF PROGRAMME MANAGEMENT OFFICE FOR THE CHANNEL ISLANDS CO-OPERATIVE SOCIETY
The Channel Islands Cooperative Society (CICS) operates grocery stores in Jersey and Guernsey as well as fuel forecourts, pharmacies, funeral services and travel agencies. CICS engaged Adapt Consulting (Tim Rogers) to work with the Strategy Manager to design and deliver a new Programme Management Office function to support the delivery of change across the business.
The new Programme Management Office provides support with strategy development, business planning, project delivery, training for project teams and improved project governance and reporting. Tim Rogers also provided practical support to project managers, including guidance on tenders, procurement, contracts and supplier management to help them deliver their projects.
The significant benefit for CICS has been the development of improved project management skills and enhanced project governance.
Tim's style, manner and pragmatic approach has been very valuable. He has helped us to implement simple, yet robust project management processes and governance. His commercial knowledge combined with PRINCE2, Scrum, and Agile has been useful to create an approach which works for our business. His contribution will have a positive and lasting effect on the way we work as a team.
