Project One helps ambitious companies to change, thrive and grow by leading and supporting the delivery of business-critical change.

We’re proud to work with many great organisations, including AstraZeneca, BAE Systems, Dixons Carphone, Harrods, John Lewis Partnership, Morrisons, NHS, Old Mutual Wealth, Santander, Shop Direct, The Co-operative Group, United Utilities, Virgin Media, Yorkshire Building Society and many others.

The needs of every business are different and every change challenge is unique. We offer three broad services which we customise based on a clear understanding of your situation.

1. A partnership to deliver your business transformation

As your trusted partner, Project One is on hand, working with you to lead and deliver transformational change, flexing our service over time. We provide people with the right experience to set your transformation up for success and drive delivery of the overall transformation as well as critical programmes and workstreams within it, working with your team and your specialist third parties.

This service suits organisations who recognise that they don’t have the capability needed for the transformational level of change they are facing and want a partner who can bridge the gap whilst improving the capability of the in-house team along the way.

2. Support to deliver a business-critical change programme

If you are undertaking a challenging change programme and need help to drive the outcomes you want, then our experienced change leaders will work with you to mobilise, deliver, assure or recover key aspects as required.

Mobilising

We focus on creating the right conditions for success so that business leaders can move forward with confidence. A clear shared vision, compelling story, business ownership, target operating model, robust business case, change roadmap, clear governance, sourcing strategy – these are just some of the essential ingredients for successful change.  

Delivering

We bring experienced delivery leadership, making the right things happen at pace and keeping a real focus on the business outcomes. We work with you to direct and control delivery, helping you get the best from your third parties and your teams, and using our experience to proactively anticipate the challenges ahead.

Assuring

Whether assurance is planned into the programme from the outset or required as in response to specific concerns, it’s an essential part of every programme. We provide comprehensive assurance, working with your teams and providing a robust, independent points of view and practical recommendations.

Recovering

Getting programmes back in control and on plan needs people with real delivery experience and insight. We are expert at turning around in-flight programmes and averting the high cost of failure.

3. Help to improve your in-house capability to deliver change

If you are facing the challenge of business-critical change, you’ll recognise the need to continuously develop your in-house change capability over time.

Project One can help you:

  • Plan how best to organise for change in your business
  • Create clear line of sight from the investment you make in change to the benefits to be delivered
  • Increase the predictability of programme and project delivery
  • Increase business confidence in your ability to deliver change in the future
