MANAGEMENT CONSULTING

Bronson offers a wide-spectrum of management consulting services.

PROJECT AND PROGRAM MANAGEMENT

Bronson excels at project management and prioritizes the delivery of our projects on schedule and within scope and budget. Increasingly, clients value having a dedicated and disciplined project management function incorporated into the delivery of a project through its lifecycle. Bronson responds by assigning a senior Project Manager to serve as the link between our technical/operational team and the client. We manage our team and the work plan precisely. Concurrently, we manage and exceed client expectations and requirements through a variety of proactive reporting techniques including status reports, status meetings and budget updates. Where required, we implement a formal change request process to manage changes to project budget, schedule, and scope.

BUSINESS PROCESS WORK AND STAKEHOLDER ENGAGEMENT

The pace of change is accelerating, driven by technology, world events and resource constraints, to name but a few. We understand how to help you make changes to your direction, communicate change to your staff, gain support from your stakeholders and thrive in a complex world.  When change is afoot, Bronson can help you make the transition a smooth one. Bronson can assist with organizational design, restructuring, cost reductions, program rationalization, workforce re-alignments and training.

BUSINESS PROCESS SIMULATION AND REENGINEERING

Bronson has expertise in reviewing business processes and identifying efficiencies. We have had great success in applying a simulation-based approach to quantitatively define potential process improvements. We also have experience in applying LEAN methodologies to improve work flow and work distribution. Bronson’s suite of service offerings includes developing related guidelines and procedures, defining associated roles and responsibilities, and conducting capability assessments, ensuring that skills and resources are solidly in place to meet expectations going forward.

EVALUATION AND ASSESSMENTS

Stepping back and taking stock of your actions is really useful, but sometimes you’re simply too close to things for meaningful self-examination.  Bronson’s multi-disciplinary team can bring the discipline, methodologies, experience and sector expertise to evaluate your policies and programs with a fresh eye. We have the tools and skills to conduct quality assurance inspections, compliance audits, and benchmarking. We can also assist in reviewing or developing performance measurement strategies and providing and implementing management control and quality management frameworks so that when you do evaluate your work, the results are positive.

STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT AND BUSINESS PLANS

Bronson has the experience, expertise, and discipline to analyze programs, projects, activities, and plans. We help our clients develop strategic plans, business cases, action plans, briefing notes, and position papers. We tailor our approach to match client needs and we emphasize the importance of understanding and analyzing the current situation by identifying shortcomings and strengths, resource levels, funding levels, and reviewing available data. We emphasize consultation and engagement with key stakeholders to further assess performance and related opportunities and work closely with the client to develop deliverables that meet organizational requirements. We can facilitate direction setting, research and analyze the issues, outline the options, develop business cases and plans (including Treasury Board submissions) and define resource requirements.

POLICY DEVELOPMENT

Bronson is adept at translating strategic direction into clear and direct policy. We have a deep understanding of Treasury Board policy instruments and have extensive experience advising clients on how to optimize operations under current and emerging policy environments. We take the time needed to understand the current environment to identify gaps and shortcomings and understand current roles, responsibilities, organizational capacities, and activities. This means working closely with the client, reviewing relevant background documentation, consulting extensively both internally and externally, and approaching the development of deliverables through an iterative approach that allows for maximum stakeholder input.
