Organisations are finding an ever increasing need for a proactive approach when it comes to building delivery teams for CPM initiatives. At Whitebridge we have devised a model which allows customers to tap into the WB Associates network giving them control. Rather than working with a supplier who works reactively, Whitebridge are able to proactively give the client control of their resource planning against their pipelined demand.
Too often when requiring tactical or strategic external subject matter expertise organisations find themselves restricted to working with suppliers who have a reactive approach, often proving damaging to project timescales and deliverables. The usual options are; to either work with a consultancy where their key performance measure is based on utilising an internal bench, where too often profitability takes priority over best fit for the job in hand, or the recruitment company that taps into the wider independent skills market by posting job requirements or searching cv databases, this reactive approach to securing the expertise required can often prove detrimental to the end customer.
At Whitebridge we have taken the opportunity to build a model which acts as an extension of the WB Associates network. This model which allows, with careful proactive planning, an organisation to have a view of not only the availability of the required consultants months in advance, but also the ability to match this with their project pipeline.
By ensuring the correct independent consultants are being tracked to match “potential” customer project timelines Whitebridge is able to offer a scalable model which can:
Track and blend expertise – blend, if required, Whitebridge Consulting capability with WB Associates (we are able to offer either types of support dependent on demand)
Scalability – the control of the WB Associates supply chain is under the direction of the client
Diversity of skills – WB Associates allows for cross skills coverage and growth of resources in key niche areas
Retention of knowledge – the model allows our clients to know at any point when a consultant is available to support them and allow for use of their retained knowledge
Visibility – regular visibility of consultant availability broken down into a skills matrix to match project demand
Key to the success of this model is Whitebridge developing a deep understanding of the consultants required from a technical, commercial and cultural perspective. Added to this Whitebridge’s effectiveness is enhanced by an advanced view on potential project demand. The focus on pipeline demand is beneficial to all parties as it allows for resource planning against potential as well as actual projects.
The model we have created is the culmination of years of working closely with key customers, and when deployed correctly we have found that it acts as a cornerstone to project planning allowing for the customer to gain control of their future CPM delivery demand.
