In our era of extreme technological change, those who innovate fastest win. Yet in the race to create value, organisations can easily lose focus.
What value do you bring to the world? How could you realise more of it? Or do it faster? How can you inspire your teams? What’s your real goal?
You have some good ideas, yet you struggle to align your organisation. You feel there must be a way for your people to work smarter, but everyone’s working too hard to step back and rethink. Or perhaps you wish you could develop a truly high-performing team.
The most-effective executives tune their performance by asking three key questions:
How can I repeatedly deliver what I’ve promised, given my available resources?
How do I instrument and control my value-creation engine to improve productivity?
How do I develop a culture that inspires high-performers and converts the cynics?
Can you answer each one credibly and reliably? We believe the actions they imply are key to creating sustainable competitive advantage by delivering higher returns at lower cost.
Many clients immediately see the value in the Ensemble Way approach, which brings all the key elements of your organisation together. But knowing what your team should be doing is one thing—doing it is another. So we developed the Value Management Office (VMO).
The VMO is our agile consulting offer, providing executive sponsors a battle-proven, plug-and-play approach to managing delivery. It brings together your program’s stakeholders in an integrated fashion, unlocking the value in the business case in the most cost-effective way.
Our management systems support the planning and performance of work in radically better ways, so you can repeatedly deliver (at least) what you’ve promised given your available resources.
Some projects are ‘burning platforms’: a looming project deadline with a client in disarray. Others are about getting more from ‘business as usual’.
For product or service organisations, we reduce risk on complex projects or increase performance across regular operations. Across contracting strategies—lump sum, ‘time and materials’, or anything in between—we help both parties in the client-vendor dance achieve a genuine alliance.

How we work
Our work is about relentless focus, every step of the way.
We ‘plan the work’, then ‘work the plan’.
We typically deploy on projects in teams of three, with a leader and two specialists. Our approach means we’re nimble and leave a light footprint on your organisation. And our technology lets you instrument and control your value-creation engine to ensure continuously improving productivity.
We can even work remotely from our VMO ‘mission control’, keeping the ship on course from behind the scenes. When you outsource repeatable and scalable work management elements to us, you can let your teams focus on doing only that which only they can do.
Instrumentation and control
VMO services get you off the launch pad and off to the stars. Look around the cockpit and see how our services fit together.
