GDSP Programme - Deepdive Review

Balfour Beatty

The challenge: tusp undertook a deep dive review to gain an understanding of the poor performance factors that were resulting in the loss of client confidence as well as productivity. 

Our solution: During the discovery phase tusp experts also reviewed significant issues around project readiness in terms of the lack of available information, planning ability, timeframe, and overall delivery.

The outcome: Our team delivered a comprehensive report highlighting the areas requiring greater focus and the key issues that needed to be resolved.
