Sole director of Peter Quintana Associates, Improving Business Performance Through Effective Operations and DeliveryAre you a small growing service business operating on the limits of your capacity? Looking for greater confidence in project benefits delivery? Or needing to reinvigorate your workforce to ensure you emerge from this recession fit for growth? Effective operations and delivery will improve your business performance, deliver better profitability and increase your return on investment.There is, however, no silver bullet. Our experience has led us to conclude that successful organisations have in place a balanced set of components: effective governance, excellent team-working, appropriate methodologies, a sensible approach to risk and quality management - underpinned by cost effective management and reporting tools and a focussed, tailored training regime of courses, workshops, coaching and mentoring. PQA can offer an assessment of where you are today leading to practical advice on where investment (if any) needs to be made. We can also provide products and services, hands on training and project management resources, all delivered by seasoned operations and project managers with years of experience.Since setting up in business in 2007, we have:• Delivered programme management and consultative services to an international technology services company seeking to make dramatic improvements to delivery performance, reducing new service start-ups from 9 months to 10 weeks and migrations from 18 months to 6 • Provided business planning and development support to a consultancy wishing to transform itself from a resource pool to a product assisted service organisation, including helping with the design, development and delivery of new training and consulting propositions• Provided services to a leading UK Business School to assist setting up a web-based entrepreneurship network and small business investment and support facilities for cohort and alumni.
