Whether Initiate is asked to play a supportive, consulting role, or to take the lead in managing the project through to completion, our approach is the same: to establish the basic drivers of success on any capital investment project or programme, by helping clients with three simple propositions.


Initiate will proactively challenge assumptions and pre-set views, helping the client to balance the competing interests of all stakeholders.

We define the business case through
strategic and business planning
stakeholder management
requirements capture
benefits management
value management
capital cost and project planning
risk analysis


Initiate helps identify, evaluate and rank the available options, while ensuring they meet the project’s requirements and deliver its projected benefits.

We develop the project execution plan through
defining the business case
value engineering
refining the capital cost and project plan
risk management
commercial strategies
organisational design
corporate governance
organising the programme / project office
setting up the programme / project procedures


Initiate will ensure that the project is delivered within the client’s time, cost and quality parameters, and crucially, delivers the anticipated business benefits.
