Under a newly formed Leadership Team, Nisbets reinvigorated their five year strategy. This consisted of five key pillars to transform the organisation and continue to grow share in a declining market. To be able to achieve their strategic objectives, significant change was required to transform their operations, infrastructure, capability, products and services.
Nine Feet Tall were brought in to prioritise and sequence the project portfolio, aligned to this newly developed strategy. We created a clear view of the portfolio and set up a central PMO, along with the associated tools and ‘just enough’ governance to put structure and processes in place to ensure the projects could be delivered.

It has been a real pleasure working with Nine Feet Tall. They brought a simple and pragmatic approach to portfolio and project management. We are now making great progress delivering against this.
