Project Management

Counterculture helps organisations establish and embed sound Project Management principles within their teams. We take existing, industry-standard, project management methodologies ­– which we recognise can seem cumbersome and unsuitable, particularly for creative organisations ­– and adapt them to develop tailored and manageable systems of work. These provide a solid foundation for the delivery of projects of all shapes and sizes.

Our approach is based on learning and listening, taking time to understand what’s working well and what can be improved, embedding sound organisational management practices into day-to-day working.

Our work helps clients to think and act in a more structured and strategic manner. Working in partnership with existing leadership teams, we will help to identify and deliver principles and processes that are appropriate and tailored to your circumstances. Once new management practices are established, our clients can do more with the resources they have, serve visitors and customers better and achieve buy-in from staff teams at all levels. This allows time and resources to be focused on the creative content at the heart of our clients’ work.

Our services in Project Management include:

  • Project planning and delivery: from initial concept and design stages through to completion of a wide range of projects;
  • Project management services: built around client teams allowing us to deliver in a specialist or full-service capacity;
  • Resourcing: supplying specialist personnel across a range of functions and working closely with client teams to ensure support is provided for the duration of the project;
  • Project management systems: working with client teams to create and establish project management processes, which are appropriate, and tailored to our clients.
