Hunter developed a detailed five-month programme plan with the Programme Director which included the milestones and timescales; resource allocation; and deliverables. The plan was developed on the back of in-depth internal stakeholder engagement within the business ensuring their involvement throughout the delivery phase and working with them to design job specifications and timetable their availability / access within the programmes for the onboarding of project team resources. The initial team of 26 project team resources were successfully on boarded with key performance objectives and indicators in place by month two.
Tight management of timescales and resources were required to ensure the delivery team were embedded in a short period of time, from both Hunter Healthcare and Buckinghamshire Healthcare’s perspective. On commencement of the programme Hunter identified the specific individuals in the trust required for onboarding, and managed the collection of information required to deliver across the disciplines, with the trust internal stakeholders working seamlessly with the resourcing delivery team at Hunter Healthcare, which included;
- Account manager, responsible to client engagement and resource management
- Two resourcers, responsible for resource selection and due-diligence
- Business manager – responsible for compliance and contractual arrangements
All services were delivered compliantly via a central, government-approved framework.
