Project Management and Implementation

Bisham Consulting are experts in Project management and Implementation. From concept design and planning, through to resourcing, set up and management to fulfilment.

Project Management and Implementation: Overview

Bisham Consulting has extensive experience in Project Management and Implementation; over 30 years in fact.

Our background in 3PL operations and experience of implementing supply chain transformations mean we can deliver real tangible benefits. Implementing major changes in a complex supply chain inherently bears a risk.

Getting ‘it right first time’ and avoiding business disruption is what makes us special. Some starting questions from the lessons learned over the past 30 years include:

  • Are you planning or about to make a major change in your supply chain?
  • Are you satisfied that your plan is robust? Have all risks been identified and mitigated and business continuity protected?
  • Would your existing transformation strategy and plans benefit from external independent scrutiny?
  • Is everyone on board and are your team meetings moving you closer to your corporate objectives?
