Professional Services

Cruarch Associates provide insight and programme delivery capacity for projects.  We are experts along the data value chain and work in collaborative teams with data management specialists on many assignments.  We undertake feasibility studies; research exercises; business case development; strategy formation; stakeholder management; event management; as well as programme management and other professional services.  We work with a network of associates to ensure that we match the right expert skills to assignment requirements.

Interim Management

Cruarch can provide your organisation with interim managers who already have a developed management skills set and experience, and a network of peers to provide advice and support. Our managers have the necessary expertise of a proven heavyweight executive to negotiate and steer a period of change or transition. Cruarch operate in the space where a permanent role may be unnecessary or impossible to find at short notice. Our interim managers add value in a number of ways, we use our skills and expertise to help deliver an outcome, solution, service or mitigate risk. We understand the outcomes required of the assignment and the timescale over which they have to be delivered. We are used to working with new organisations in different environments, and in engaging promptly with the situation. Our skills, expertise, knowledge and experience enable us to be productive from the outset, maximising the likelihood of success. We are objective, accountable, independent operators. Our professionalism is our success.

Effectiveness

Operating at or near board-level gives our Interim Managers the authority and credibility to effect significant change or transition within a company.

Commitment

Cruarch Interim Managers maintain high professional standards because our future work relies upon referrals and a successful track record. We therefore have a stake in the success of the assignments that we undertake. Our approach contrasts favourably with other ‘temporary workers’ who may also be seeking ‘permanent employment’ or simply motivated by a day rate or extending their tenure.

Consultancy

In addition to interim roles, Cruarch uses its expertise to provide advice and develop change and transformation programmes. We utilise industry “best practices”, making these work in a variety of settings using our extensive skills and experience. Cruarch also provide analysis and research, business process optimisation, risk analysis and compliance evaluation, organisational change management assistance, development of coaching skills, technology implementation, strategy development, or operational improvement services.

P30 Programme and Project Management

Cruarch Associates undertake large and complex programmes of work, that usually require some thought to structure. Core to our approach is enabling individuals within your organisation to deliver, empowering your own resources to effect change, and focusing on delivery and the achievement the outcomes you have set.
