critical-friendThere can be times where a ‘fresh pair of eyes’ can spot things that may have been otherwise missed, or where approaches need to be challenged to instigate improvements. Our ‘Critical Friend’ support service can help clients:

  • Assessing and challenging approaches
  • Review of project plans, processes, standards and remits
  • Commenting and suggesting updates for key documents
  • Fact finding which could include meetings, document reviews and analysis
  • Meeting facilitation
  • Assessment of alignment to good practice approaches and external comparators
  • Discussion of findings and conclusions
  • Report drafting, editing and review
  • Coaching and mentoring

The above services would all be internal to the organisation, hence the term ‘critical friend’. Outputs and findings would only be shared with previously agreed internal stakeholders.
