Anatomy of a Project

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.

  • strategic and business planning

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