Over a period of time all people-based businesses end up working sub-optimally. Processes will naturally degrade as organisations try to adapt to the ever changing economic environment. How a business plans and reacts to these changes will ultimately define its success in relation to its competitors.
Solitaire Consulting can help your business adapt to change by providing a number of specialist services:
- Business Change Management
- Programme Management
- Project Management
- Business Analysis and Process Improvement
- Systems Consulting
We work closely with our clients. We gain a detailed understanding of their individual requirements, and only then, will we recommend a specific course of action to meet their needs. This approach ensures that our clients gain significant business benefits when working with Solitaire Consulting.

As an independent practice we are not aligned to specific consultancy models or ways of working, so can offer independent and objective advice. However, we do recommend specific technology solutions where they meet client requirements.
