The Lloydmasters Consultancy

We are proud of the work we have delivered for our clients, here we explain the problem and the solution we worked on with The Lloydmasters Consultancy 

The company

Lloydmasters is a boutique consultancy working with senior executives at illustrious companies such as British Airways, BP and Balfour Beatty. Its aim is to drive innovation by aligning the interests of all stakeholders, both internal and external.

The requirement

Lloydmasters works with the goal-directed project management (GDPM) process. This involves stakeholders working together to agree a common programme framework. It operates under four central pillars:

  • Clear objectives

  • Identified milestones relevant for achieving the end goal

  • The right team with assigned responsibilities for achieving the milestones

  • Everyone in agreement with major stakeholders and the project team.

To complement its GDPM processes, Lloydmasters saw the value in harnessing technology, but ran into problems when faced with too many options. A technology partner was sought to guide the company through these options, to choose the best course and turn ideas into reality.

The solution

Microsec worked alongside Lloydmasters from the outset – an unusually early stage of involvement for custom software engineering. We did this to get a solid grasp on the company’s business requirements. Then, we applied Agile technologies to develop incremental proofs of concept. With this approach we could identify the most suitable architectures and technology tools for implementation.

The result

Microsec is now the software development partner of choice for Lloydmasters. We effectively proved our expertise at constructing the best technology framework for its business ideas. On top of this we delivered to deadlines and embody a flexible partnering philosophy, which means all parties work together as one team.

“We had considered "offshoring" development but there's no doubt that having a UK-based resource has been critical in developing cost-effective and technically sound additions to our services.”
