Anubian was born from a desire to address a frequent challenge from senior people in larger organisations tasked with safely and successfully delivering change programmes under growing cost pressures.
The message was that although engaging the major consultancies felt safe in terms of having a big name to rely on, there was always a worry about the relatively high costs running away over time – and a sense that those firms were always pushing for more business and the next piece of work.
The view on a lower cost approach, that of using the contractor market, certainly helped with budgets, but left too much of the burden of management to the busy Client – and didn’t provide the sense that there was a team batting hard for the programme objectives.
Over a period of time, ideas evolved between two people – one the founder of one of the leading Programme Management and SAP resourcing agencies, and one a former client of his and successful Consultancy business leader: they developed these ideas, challenging and refining the model, testing it with clients and with Programme Managers. The result is what we have today – Anubian’s Value Assured Programme team delivery model.
