"Chris led a team of experts carrying out a strategic and independent review of Crop Health & Protection Ltd (‘CHAP’) assets at a critical time for our business. The review team carried out a detailed assessment providing expert technical analysis, insight, and challenge which was pivotal in the development of the CHAP business plan. Chris’ leadership and direction meant that this complex and sensitive review was credible with all participants and its recommendations were key to the re-launch of the CHAP delivery programme. Chris provided the challenge, insight, and support that comes from a very skilled leader and operator in the field of project assurance, delivery, and oversight."
ALCO Consulting is a specialist consultancy dedicated to helping projects succeed. Covering the whole range of activities from concept to strategy, business case to requirements specification, and procurement to client-side project management, we offer a unique team approach to satisfying our client’s requirements. In addition, our project assurance activities allow us to report on projects no matter at what stage they are in their evolution. Our advisory capabilities cover multiple market sectors and span and support a “best in breed” approach to the selection and combination of sector activities.
We are well known and respected in the transit sector, particularly for advice on smart AFC systems, although our work in this sector is increasingly directed towards integrated transport solutions. Our cross sector ICT integration activities imply advice and support for data sharing, data analysis and data science if full value is to be gained from an investment in integration.
ALCO Consulting personnel are experts in the field of Information Assurance and carry out Project Gateway™ Reviews of High Risk Mission Critical Projects for the UK and Australian Governments as well as for the commercial sector.
We strongly believe that just doing the job is not enough, we try to ensure that we leave our clients to gain, in addition to project advice, through knowledge transfer. In particular, we wish to equip top level directors and senior managers with the grounding knowledge and key questions to ask to allow them properly to assess their projects.
