Representing Your Commercial Interests
If you are responsible for a Major Digital programme in your organisation you are probably very reliant on suppliers for your success.
There is nothing that worries Programme Leaders more than their programmes pausing because a supplier is waiting for a signed contract, or is disputing whether a work is within their contracted scope.
We represent your commercial interests on Major programmes, helping you tackle all supplier risks to your programme proactively, well before they turn into issues that need addressing immediately.
Expert Commercial Management without the headaches
With our Commercial Interims service, you’ll have the experts in your corner when it comes to procuring and managing high value commercial contracts with your strategic suppliers.
Our networks comprise of commercial interims associated with IACCM, CIPS and CIArB. Should it be necessary, we will also run a wider market search beyond our network and screen for the right individual to represent your interests.
Through our early and dedicated commercial participation we seek to ensure lasting positive outcomes for you and your supply chain. You’ll be able to extend your commercial workforce rightly, rapidly and economically.
We had a lack of User Research and Content Design skills in the Programme. This requirement had remained unfilled over 7 months of working through the Contingent Labour process. Mindful delivered the immediate requirements with so much ease. We then had them stand up the entire user research team as a service - they accomplished this within equally impressive timescales.
Programme Manager, ICT and Services Transformation Programme
I had the pleasure of working very closely with Amit over an intense 10 month cycle from initial fact finding to case building and ultimately into successful resolution. Amit’s strong commercial mind-set was a key asset for me personally and to the project. His hard work and diligent nature helped us draw the complex strands of this issue together and production of key analysis.
Head of Commercial, Government Major Projects Portfolio
I like using Mindful because they get us intuitively. We often just have to send them a brief note of what we need to get high quality profiles presented to us, quite often the following day or soon after. Also, any feedback we gave them on an unsuccessful candidate immediately improved the fit of other profiles they subsequently presented.
Business Change Manager, Central Govt Department
The standardised reporting project has been a complex project, attempted several times before. It is a testament to Jaydeep and all the team members that it finally achieved the intended outcome. The helpful approach of actively reflecting on our demands and the system constraints to propose new options helped move the project forward. He made it easy to work with him and went above and beyond the norm.
