Delivering an IT investment programme for an Irish state-owned bank

We delivered this complex project, that formed a major part of a programme of recovery, on time and within budget.

The Challenge

Our client was an Irish state-owned bank which needed to deliver an IT investment programme. It formed a major part of a recovery plan with a budget of €30m and a timeline of 2.5 years.

The executive committee tasked us with delivering this programme, improving the collections and credit risk systems, upgrading critical finance and treasury systems and building a strategic management information solution. 

Our Approach

Our team managed the programme throughout its full lifecycle, from inception to close-down. And following the programme we embedded support back into the business as usual functions.

We mobilised multiple work streams, completed vendor negotiations, designed a high-level solution capable of meeting the set objectives and ensured continuous stakeholder engagement with the executive committee and board.

We agreed, allocated and managed the budget and ultimately ensured that the promised solution was delivered, tested and successfully deployed.

Finally, we ensured business readiness and support for ongoing management of the new platform. 

The Outcome

The biggest fear of our client’s Board was that the programme would spiral out of control on costs and timescales, at a critical time for the business.

We removed those concerns by delivering fit-for-purpose solutions and diligent professional programme management, that delivered on time and within budget.
