Consultancy Services

Providing consultancy services and advisory expertise whilst working alongside our clients to support them address their biggest challenges.

Focused solely on your agenda, we love rolling our sleeves up, getting stuck into the content and working collaboratively with you to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Either in parallel with our core project management offer, or as a standalone piece of work, we provide you with ‘client-side’ consulting support, independent insight and expertise.

Our Consultancy Services include


We work with you on the strategic planning process and development of the management plan that directs and operates your entire organisation and that leads you to achieve your ultimate long-term objectives and goals.

We’ll help you develop a good, crisp and actionable strategy – one that’s well thought through, has identified what the choices are, and sets a clear and practical direction.

Target Operating Models (TOMs)

We support you in developing your Target Operating Model (a description of how the processes, controls, technology and organisation will operate at a point in the future) and the transformation roadmap required to get you there.

We deploy a proven process to help you coherently articulate all the key elements of how your organisation will operate in the future, and ensure that this operating model aligns with your organisational strategy.

Digital Strategy

As the transformational opportunities presented by technology are increasingly understood, organisations are realising that a digital and cloud strategy is required, one that sits at the heart of the organisation.

We can help you to articulate a digital and cloud strategy that is truly integrated within the business. This strategy defines the digital capabilities, roadmap, and capacity that your organisation requires to meet your overall strategic goals.


We know what good procurement looks like and will work with you to put in a framework and supporting processes to build out your internal procurement capability.

We help procurement functions deliver competitive advantage through cost effectiveness, service improvement and improved resilience and flexibility. We provide independent expertise to ensure that you establish the right supplier relationships across multiple partners.

Risk Governance

The implementation of appropriate governance and risk frameworks can enhance risk oversight, facilitate better resource allocation decisions, increase operational efficiency and effectiveness, and strengthen a company’s internal control controls.

CBO can help your company apply an integrated approach to identifying and assessing business risks, evaluating existing risk management activities, and developing pragmatic, continuous risk management frameworks and processes.

Application Roadmap

We work with organisations to take what is often a disparate and unprioritised portfolio of technology projects and application upgrades, through a structured process to produce a coherent roadmap of technology delivery, aligned to business strategy.

This application roadmap sets out the capabilities, technology, delivery schedule, and case for change needed to truly embed long term digital transformation.

Does your organisation need our consultancy expertise?

If you need help with a specific challenge as part of a broader programme, or on a discrete piece of work we can bring our consultancy expertise and experience to bear to support your organisation.

Whether that’s supporting you develop strategies, Target Operating Models and business cases, running procurement exercises or implementing best practice risk governance, or simply whether you’d just like some help working through some challenging issues we’re here to work by your side to achieve the best possible outcomes.


Our Consultancy Services bring,

  • Experience and expertise
  • A proven track record of success
  • An independent perspective
  • A collaborative approach focussed on your agenda

The power of psychological safety in the workplace

We have an organisational obsession with performance. If we don’t perform at work, we don’t thrive, and we fail both individually and collectively. While there is good evidence for orienting work around appropriate goals, and being output focused to enhance performance, I’m suggesting that we are merely tinkering at the edges of true success! There […]
