What We Do

Turning an idea into reality takes creativity, tenacity and flexibility.

When you make the decision to engage a consultant to help bring your idea to life, you need someone who:

  • takes the time to understand what you want to achieve
  • listens to your point of view
  • is prepared to get in, roll their sleeves up and work with you
  • discerns between people and organisations
  • is qualified, capable and ethical
  • implements solutions
  • produces results

This approach underpins the way we deliver services.

There are many reasons why organisations outsource project management, the main one being the need to ensure there is a focus and drive to get the project done and for the project or construction manager to provide the necessary attention to the project fundamentals: time, scope and budget.

We understand that communication and integration are critical factors in successful project management. We can either lead the project management or work with your team in an advisory or review function.

In any organisation, government or the private sector, there is always more to do than the budget will allow. Business cases must therefore be based on sound analysis and provide a compelling reason to support a particular investment decision. The issues and drivers must be clearly articulated, there must be a direct and strong link to organisational objectives, the decision making processes clear and transparent and the plan for implementation must inspire confidence from management that it can be done.

We can assist your organisation with the development of business cases, from initial document scoping through to final drafting of document for submission to the executive or Board.

We can also undertake an external review of your business case, using your management systems or a State government gateway review template. Our team includes trained Gateway Review Team Members  registered as Gateway Reviewers in multiple States.

The workshop remains one of the most effective ways to get a group of people together to explore complex issues and create solutions and responses. While technology is delivering some really clever ways to extract and aggregate ideas from big groups or even entire communities, for smaller groups (up to 20), workshops provide an environment for people to work together in an active and dynamic setting where ideas can be challenged, evolved and ultimately, resolved.

It is critical the workshop is well designed, and communications leading up to the workshop are clear and succinct. We are a big believer in “getting the warm-up right” – the warm up starts the moment you begin talking to attendees about an upcoming workshop or event. How many times have you attended a workshop, only to find the attendees all have different ideas as to why they are there, and what they need to do? This occurs when the warm-up is not right. You spend the first hour resolving with the group what exactly they are there to achieve.

The success of most workshops hinges on good “design”, which includes clear objectives, the right people in the room and a plan to deal with the full range of scenarios that can evolve on the day.

Resonance Consulting draws from an extensive network of associates and can bring together a large multidisciplinary team quickly and seamlessly, including engineering and design, drafting, financial analysis, life cycle assessment, climate change and energy, waste management, spatial analysis, industrial relations and HR, communications, science, legal and visual facilitation.

With our network we can build and manage a large team on your behalf to provide you an efficient and integrated solution.

Systems and processes are the core of service delivery and if poorly designed can lead to compliance, operational and efficiency issues. We can provide systems and process mapping and improvement. Alternatively we can provide operational support to troubleshoot specific problems or look for ways to make a process more effective and efficient.

Delivering large complex projects requires good strategy and planning and a team that works effectively, together. Despite the project manager’s best efforts, sometimes tasks go astray and projects get off track. Supplier relationships, team dynamics, political or stakeholder issues, budget and program overruns can quickly undo the very best efforts of the project team.

If you are a project sponsor, and the project reports you are receiving (or just your gut) tell you things are not going as well as they should be, we can work with you and the team to understand the root cause, and develop and implement actions to prevent the project from veering off the critical path.

We will work with the project sponsor and project team to assess the current status of the project, establish how it is performing against the original project objectives, undertake a diagnostic to identify the root cause of issues, develop solutions and work with the client to the get the project back on track.
