"At Fistral we believe in working together with our customers to define what they actually need – rather than develop something that may or may not directly address their requirements."

Consultancy

Fistral Consultancy

Fistral provides management consultancy to organisations from all sectors: from SMEs to local government, academic organisations to blue-chip companies. The Fistral team focus on identifying the root cause of a problem and then work with the customer to develop the best method of addressing it, with a solution that works and importantly, will stick.


Improving Projects

In addition to assisting traditional project management phases such as initiation, and planning for new or existing projects, Fistral specialises in:

Fistral Ball
  • Project Audits
  • Monitoring and Project Evaluation
  • Project Recovery – including troubleshooting; and
  • Independent Risk Review.

Designing Training

Fistral uses extensive industry and academic experience - in designing courses, training and lecturing, and course evaluation - to provide cohesive and effective approaches to the design and implementation of integrated training courses and staff development programmes.


Motivating People

Some clients opt for bespoke consultancy on softer skills such as:

  • Improved Team Work
  • Motivation
  • Communication
  • Improving Customer Service; and
  • Change Management.

The Fistral team can use DiSC behavioural profiling (sometimes referred to as ‘colours’) to underpin staff or personal development if it aligns with an organisation’s personnel or student development approach.

These engagements are often complimented with training, seminars, masterclasses, workshops, 1:1 or group sessions, mentoring and remote (e.g. Skype) support to ensure meaningful and sustainable change.
