Consulting for Defence Clients

Whilst world peace doesn’t look like it will happen any time soon, Government defence spending continues to reduce in many parts of our world.  Today’s Defence leaders (Government and Industry) therefore face constant pressure to cut costs while delivering technological advancement in operational capability.  It’s a challenge for which failure is obviously not an option.

So ask yourself:

  • Is your defence organisation capable of succeeding in a highly competitive, technology-centred, low-budget environment?

  • Is your capability advanced enough to outcompete larger, better-known, overseas rivals and stay ahead?

  • Do you have the strategies, methods and governance to achieve your objectives and keep yourself honest?
