How we Deliver

Our engagement is specifically tailored to meet the needs of the client. Our engagement process is:

Step One: Meet the Mentor

Our team consists of ex-CIO and CTOs with varied industry backgrounds, all of whom have had stellar careers with blue chip organisations. We work collaboratively with the aspiring IT Leader and the business to ensure a great match is made, considering both experience and a cultural alignment.

Step Two: Engagement Plan

Working with the IT Leader and the business, we agree the specific goals and timeline for each engagement. We then deliver a proposed engagement plan, detailing the key areas of support required along with priorities and timescales. This is supplemented with ongoing access to our wider team and resources, ensuring a wide range of skills and expertise, across multiple technologies and our Change Management Practice are always available.

Step Three: Structured Pathway

Working with the individual and the business to deliver the structured pathway, typically including stakeholder mapping, influencing skills, how to propose technology projects within a business context, events and CIO peer groups covering industry trends, technology trends, horizon scanning and use of Leading Resolutions unique innovation platform to find exciting, niche solutions to business challenges.

Leading Resolutions made a massive contribution to Cirencester Friendly, taking the lead in reshaping our IT department and making it more forward-thinking and business focussed as well as playing a key role in the site relocation. The Interim Head of IT was consistently ready to go the extra mile and lead others to do the same; he leaves IT in a significantly better state, and we are grateful for the improvements to our systems, people and ways of working.
