HR Transformation Rapid Review

HR Transformation Rapid Review – an independent review for existing programmes

If you are thinking about a complex and expensive HR change programme, or if you happen to be in the middle of a programme and want an independent expert, then we can be your sounding board.

You might work with different vendors, but it’s sometimes useful go gain independent advice, on questions such as :-

  • Will this programme achieve business goals?
  • Is the programme set up correctly?
  • Do I have the right team in place, where are the gaps?
  • What are the key programme risks, how well are they being managed?

Our “Rapid Review” service enables you to tackle your specific key issues by taking you through a simple approach.

  1. We agree the questions you want to resolve 
  2. We review the programme and interview key individuals and stakeholders
  3. We highlight what we find as we go along and discuss possible solutions


We will deliver a Rapid Review Assessment report with our findings and importantly a set of recommended actions.  The reviews are fixed cost and can be completed in a short period of time.

Some clients also have also requested an experienced independent QA Advisor to attend their Programme Governance Board.

The starting point is an informal conversation to discuss how a Rapid Review might support your current programmes.

In a “Rapid Review” we typically evaluate :-

  • Ensure goals are linked to business objectives
  • Skills & capability of the Programme Team
  • Programme Management tools and processes
  • Readiness for change in the organisation and in HR
  • Capability of HR Systems to support HR Transformation goals
  • HR Process Hierarchy
  • Methodology and approach
  • Change Management Strategy


Led by a credible independent transformation expert

Andrew Spence, our HR Transformation Director will lead the review and bring in any agreed domain experts depending on the areas of focus.
