Existing Relationship – Lessons Learned
What we deliver
Independent lessons learned against ‘what good looks like’. We review 64 aspects of the relationship (the ‘Optimise’ method) and deliver a round-table workshop. It outlines what has already been done really well, and where you can add further value.
How you will benefit
Learn from what you are already doing well. Many organisations focus on learning from what they perceive to have not done well. However, most organisations have some real pockets of excellence that they need to continue in future practice. This workshop identifies these and incorporates them into wider improved practices.
Real application of ‘what good looks like’ for future projects. It is often difficult to apply ‘what good looks like’ principles into every day practice. Because we review your existing project(s) and relationship(s), you can take real-life scenarios of your own specific situations and apply them to future projects and relationships.
Key contents of the Lessons Learned Process/Workshop
Review of expected outcomes
We review the clarity of your documented outcomes to determine how these accelerated understanding between client and supplier and if improvements are appropriate next time around.
Organisational and stakeholder readiness
We determine the degree to which your organisation was ready for change, motivation to improve, team infrastructure and leadership support.
Articulation of solution requirements
We assess how clearly articulated your requirements were and how well they were aligned to the business outcomes you and the supplier expected to achieve between you.
Contract and procurement principles review
Identify the degree to which the right contractual and procurement principles were in place to ensure suppliers provide the right advice and service solution.
Reviews of past procurements
We’ll identify where your organisation already had great skills and capability to procure a fit for purpose solution and a supplier with the right cultural fit.
We’ll assess the feedback from any supplier early market engagement and the degree it reflected your expectations being achieved within budget, time and resourcing.
Procurement governance review
Identify the governance ‘hygiene factors’ (a) What was already good, (b) improvements made, (c) What ‘good’ looks like and (d) the alignment to the business outcomes.
The output is designed to provide key principles and indicators of ‘what good looks like’ to assure success, compares where you currently are and whether any improvements would improve value.
