As the transit authority for Vancouver, Translink wished to implement an integrated electronic ticketing system for its many public transport modes to improve convenience for its patrons. ALCO Consulting were appointed as independent expert advisors for the whole project lifecycle from strategic design through to implementation and commissioning.
Kicking-off a major procurement, implementation or business transformation is no easy task and it often takes time to identify and recruit or transition programme or project managers and their teams, get them through the learning curve and up to speed on the technologies or on the business subject. As a result, precious time and budget is expended with limited progress being made in the early stages. The same is true when project teams a re-structured, often creating an expensive hesitation.
In response to an increasing number of our clients, ALCO Consulting can provide experienced project and programme directors and managers capable of working cross-domain to work in conjunction with the client and programme sponsor and ensure that progress is made and maintained throughout any high-risk period.
All of our consultants are highly experienced and can quickly identify, prioritise and manage the issues that influence major initiatives throughout their lifecycle.
