What is Project Consulting Practice?
Business today is having to initiate, manage and deliver project portfolios within increasingly complex environments. Driven by rapid regulatory changes, innovative global and local competition, shifting economic and geopolitical power and an ever increasing demand to deliver more with less, has led even the most mature organisations to re-think how they develop and augment their programme and project practices.
The ability to successfully initiate, execute and deliver project initiatives, is what, in many cases, drives the realisation of intended business benefits and the achievement of an organisation’s overall strategic intent. Businesses that invest in developing their project competencies (knowledge, skill and attitude) and their partnerships with like-minded and project centric service providers, stand a significantly better chance of surviving and thriving into the future.
At DDLS our Project Consulting Practice is at the forefront of offering our valued clients, relevant and value-adding strategic and tactical programme and project management services. What sets DDLS apart from its peers, is our unique ability to offer consulting services throughout the managing by project and project management value chain.
The DDLS Project Consulting Practice is structured to deliver services within two of our clients’ most urgent and ongoing needs; one being the continuous development of their in-house resources in the very latest and relevant programme, project and change management competencies and the second being the effective prioritisation, selection, planning and delivery of their programmes and project portfolio.

“There is not an organisation around today that can be successful if it doesn’t have a project mindset and if it doesn’t have practitioners at the portfolio, programme and project level.”
