Our Services

Challenges of Scale

Research indicates that only about 30% of large scale IT projects are completed on time and to budget, compared to a success rate of 40-50% for smaller projects. The reasons for this include: scope creep, poor requirements definition, inadequate resources, unexpected technical challenges and communication problems between stakeholders such as customers, managers and technical staff.

How can we help?

Automation Consultants has many years of experience supporting large, complex change/ transformation programmes with automated tooling, bespoke software and specialist resources. We have senior, highly experienced partners in our team, able to offer a complete programme delivery service, using their significant experience in large-scale complex IT and transformation programme delivery. They also bring a strong network of trusted affiliates with extensive programme delivery experience delivery, who have been engaged to deliver several of the largest, most complex and most important programmes on behalf of public sector and blue-chip organisations.

Our Approach

Our approach is designed to mitigate the risks of large projects and includes the following main elements:

Detailed planning: well-defined project plans that include clear milestones, deliverables, and timelines.

Experienced leaders: with a track record of successful delivery

Regular communication: before and throughout the programme

Proactive risk management: we assume that risks such as scope creep and technical difficulties will occur and take active precautions against them.

Agile methodology: our long experience of agile methods and the tools to support them is fully deployed in our large-scale IT projects.

A network of trusted affiliates: our network enables us to fill key roles with people with the talent and experience to do them to a high standard.

Guiding and coaching your wider team to maximise the benefits of tooling, aiding the programme controls and reporting - and most importantly without causing a burden or unnecessary admin overhead. 
Helping to prepare your broader organisation for the project handover to operations by training and guidance on using the tooling of your choice

Looking to go beyond the usual suppliers?

When it comes to large-scale projects, many of the best known names in IT consultancy and systems integration are quick to tender and often win projects of considerable scope. What comes next can be disappointing - timelines extended, deadlines missed and spiralling costs. If this sounds familiar and you're looking for a new consultancy to support your project, we're here to help.
