Projects and Programme Management​

Good project management is often the difference between the success and failure of a business

Going round in circles?

Too many times projects never get off the ground or have false starts as they have not been appropriately planned. We provide the skills to ensure that projects are scoped, resourced, and delivered on time and to budget to ensure we enhance the value of your business. No more false starts. 

Why do projects fail?

There are many reasons projects fail, but acknowledging failure and understanding why projects fail is the best way to avoid making the same mistakes in the future. Successful projects have a great project leader, good project teams, and understand their strengths and weaknesses.

Even though every company is different, there are some common themes in project management failures:

Poor Vision

Unclear or poorly aligned project objectives

Bad Planning

Traction lost at hurdles or barriers


Poor communication leads to unclear accountability

Lack of Resource

Not the right skills, or not enough

Programme Controls

Manageability starts with clear and simple rules. A robust tracking and reporting system must be built on a single version of the truth.

Queensbury’s programme controls professionals keep the machinery running smoothly for complex schemes of work by providing centralised management and coordination of your projects and programmes, leveraging synergies and best practise across business areas ensuring the successful delivery of your desired outcomes.

We do this through robust governance and document control, providing quality assurance and best practise tools, ensuring statutory and Health & Safety compliance and the supporting administration of projects and programmes. Underpinning all of this is the use of a virtual collaborative space where assets, projects, programmes and resources can be managed and viewed in one place for a single source of the truth reporting.
