Whilst we always look to develop and agree a tailored service to meet specific project needs the following is a range of services which cadence can provide.
Establishing and safeguarding your project requirements.
The Cadence approach to managing projects is centred around listening and understanding followed by agreement and action stitched together with clear and effective communication. This way the right service and methodology will be specifically tailored to your project requirements and business outcomes.

Out impartial advice and recommendations will develop into agreed strategies with your leadership group so a transparent and coherent plan can be implemented and monitored in line with your governance arrangements.
Accurate and current project information is the key to protecting your investment.
Cadence provides a project fund monitoring service which is independent and impartial advice for Clients who have an interest in a development project. The Cadence approach is proactive and provides an early warning system for Clients by anticipating potential issues which may affect the delivery of the project.
The role is one of investigator and advisor to the Client on the risks associated with a development and thereby protects and supports the Client's interests in the development as it proceeds.
Helping you make the correct decision.
Our senior management team have a considerable track record of providing project and investment 'health checks' on behalf of end user clients, developers, funders and administrators.
Cadence's project and commercial management experience has meant we know what makes projects succeed and more importantly why projects fail.

Getting the best and maximising opportunities.
Businesses and organisations are continually facing internal and external challenges and increasing pressure to deliver improvement with greater value.
Whether through finding ways for your built assets to work more efficiently with greater value, the exploration of new opportunities to generate income, the introduction of more methodical processes and procedures to improve business delivery or establishing new or refined strategies Cadence has the experience to make a difference to your business.
From initial review and recommendations we can help support plan, develop and manage the required steps to deliver improvement.
A flexible approach to realising your resource requirements.
Cadence can provide interim management support at short notice to assist organisations trying to implement a critical strategy, undergoing a major change or just looking to fill a critical resource gap.
The interim management route provides an immediate solution by filling a role with an experienced senior project manager who can focus on critical tasks and provide knowledge transfer to the existing team. The role can vary from providing strategic advice at board level to the actual delivery of an agreed strategy.
The only thing that we can be certain of is Change.
Nothing in business ever stays the same. Change, either positive or negative, can impact on individuals, teams or organisations. In business however Change will, on the whole, effect more than one persons and that's why at Cadence we always consider Stakeholders and Change together. We believe the two are intrinsically linked and benefits can be realised if considered together.
For many reasons Stakeholders can either influence or drive change and similarly they can also be effected or impacted by Change.
Our knowledge and experience of working across a diverse range of commissions with many stakeholder groups has enabled us develop effective tools based around the following Stakeholder Engagement Principles:
Similarly, our simple yet methodical procedures will help manage the transition through the stages of change, be it at project, programme or strategic level based on the following Change Management Principles:
A collaborative and creative approach to successful bid preparation.
Cadence has a wealth of experience in preparing bids and providing presentation support with the sole aim of winning business for Clients. The key to successful bids is to communicate and demonstrate that you understand the Client's business vision and drivers which will ensure the proposals and presentations are targeted to address the needs and objectives in a compelling and enthusiastic way.
Clients need to be assured that the bid demonstrates strong service values and has been fine tuned to fit their circumstances, timescales and needs.
The Cadence senior management team of David and Alistair have worked together for 10 years and consistently provide a committed service giving confidence and reassurance.
We have a combined experience of more than 55 years worth of project and commercial management with a very hands on approach. Who you see is who you get from start to finish. No substitutes or juniors.
