The ability to develop effective strategy is founded on the ability to listen. Increasingly projects fail, not because of the technical knowledge behind them, but because they have failed to understand the problem in the first place.
At Happold Consulting, we help our clients focus on outcomes. What is the client trying to achieve? How will they know when we get there? What obstacles prevent them from realising their goal? What resources are available? By helping our clients establish a clear understanding of where they are going, we can identify and mitigate risks along the way, as well as find opportunities to improve the outcomes.
Our projects, like our clients, are from diverse and varied backgrounds. However, common to all is their focus on changing the built environment around them.
It is no secret that projects that have invested in significant planning – in both the physical and economic sense – during inception and concept development are more likely to perform better.
