  • Ensures delivery of robust, holistic and timely Management Information (MI) to underpin P3M decision making.
  • Establishes P3M delivery baseline through creation of benefits, scope, plan and schedule, cost and resources, risks and opportunities, and stakeholder artefacts.

Case studies


tpgroup has provided embedded support to the £5.1B Type 26 Programme, supporting the implementation and application of project controls techniques, including earned value management (EVM) and estimate at completion (EAC) cost estimates. Allowing the Type 26 senior management team to maintain the overall contract performance to deliver on time.
tpgroup provided embedded support to the £4B LE TacCIS Programme for over 18 months. 

Working within the constraints of the Defence Operating Model, and working alongside key stakeholders to exploit extant processes and products; we defined and implemented a revised governance framework (including PMO) processes, organisation, tools and information (POTI).

We now provide leadership and resource support to the re-invigorated PMO, which has enabled the Programme to make more timely and informed decisions.
