As managing overheads becomes increasingly important, one way for large organisations to minimise cost and focus on areas where they most add value is to bring in specialist project management expertise.
IOD PARC’s approach is built on our ability to engage with clients to ensure that work is delivered effectively with minimal transaction costs, yet still ensuring our clients are able to learn lessons and develop institutional memory for future action and decision making. We combine high level financial management and planning skills with the interpersonal and engagement skills you would expect from a process consultancy firm. This ensures a focus both on on-time delivery, yet flexibility and adaptability where required. Examples of our work in this area include the management of evaluation helpdesks for UNICEF and DFID and the management of the Evaluation Function for DFID’s Research Into Use Programme.
