Service Planning and Feasibility

Service Planning and Feasibility

Rigorous service planning and feasibility analysis are the foundation of an organisation’s successful service or infrastructure transformation.

Our approach and in-house expertise across all the required disciplines delivers a robust planning process,  and clear documents leading to a superior funding outcome for our clients.

Our team guides clients through a structured process to: identify and articulate the service need, engage stakeholder contributions, develop a strategic response, cultivate potential service and capital options to address the need, and assess feasible options against a range of qualitative and quantitative measures. We also emphasise a continual consideration of risk, change, value and communications management, to improve project processes, capitalise on opportunities and achieve success.

We have successfully provided service planning and feasibility services for health, education, research, local government, transport, justice and defence organisations.

  • Strategic Planning

    Using a range of data analysis and collaborative consultation techniques, we guide the development of an organisation’s strategy that is achievable and aligned to core business, inspires executive support and provides confidence in service implementation.

  • Service Planning

    Our proven methodology integrates consultation, research and analysis, to detail the nature and scope of required organisational, workforce and asset changes, so that an organisation can make informed strategic decisions about the future of your services.

  • Strategic Asset Planning

    We have established the standard for developing a compelling asset strategy that: attracts capital investment; extends the asset portfolio’s operating life; and informs maintenance expenditure, criteria for disposals, renewals and upgrades – while minimising operational disruption.

  • Feasibility Studies

    We have the proven experience in the required techniques to develop options that satisfy a desired service or business outcome. We objectively evaluate the prospect of success and provide our clients a solid platform for informed decision making.
