Project Management & Support

Our full range of project delivery and support services.

Your core business is your primary focus and your reputation depends on it. It is what you are best at and contributes most to your bottom line. There are times when you need to implement projects to sustain and expand your viability in the market place.

How can you do that without committing valuable corporate expertise and resources, yet still keep control of the cost, quality and schedule of your project? And how will you know that what you’re paying for is what you asked for, and what you asked for is what you really wanted in the first place.

THE ANSWER: HAVE YOUR PROJECTS PROFESSIONALLY MANAGED FOR YOU.

We will introduce formal, rigorous, low risk project management, using best practice techniques and processes, leaving you free to get on with your business whilst knowing that your project is in capable hands. You receive full visibility of progress, assurance in respect of both the service you receive and the product being delivered; and you still maintain executive authority over your project.

LSA can provide this service, either as a fully integrated part of your project team, or by providing the total project team.
