What are the benefits we can bring?



Large scale business changes are typically complex, costly and risky. Great project management increases the likelihood of success.



We have supported organisations with such challenges for over 20 years. We support the full project lifecyle from discovery, through initiation, requirements, design, delivery and closure.



In some cases, we are asked to recover problematic projects or perform post project reviews to extract the learning.

Project Leadership

We have run over 100 projects in a range of sectors and functional areas. There isn't a typical project but they normally deliver signifcant business change and involve products, services, reorganisation, construction, process and systems.

One of our favourite projects was the development of the Volkswagen National Learning Centre. We were engaged to help manage the project and its six workstreams, including the processes, organisational design, fit out and systems for the state of the art facility. Despite a few challenges during its development, the NLC opened on schedule and has been serving hundreds of delegates per day since then.

Programme Office

We have supported many companies with their large programmes, in partnership with programmExpress, and their programme reporting tool. We help organisations set up the tool, train their staff and apply to their programme.

A good example is the implementation in Picsolve, followed by long term programme office support on site and remotely.

We work closely with other small, like minded organisations to provide a broader service for our customers. The group brings a range of services and many, many years of automotive experience.

We are passionate about business improvement and that includes our own, so we keep up to date with techniques and developments relevant to our work. We are supported by a strong and experienced network of Associates who offer additional capacity and complementary skills.

Merry Christmas!

We wish you well for the festive period and hope you are able to recharge your batteries for the challenges of 2019. In lieu of sending Christmas Cards, we have donated to our two chosen charities.

Retina UK supports those visually impaired by inherited retinal conditions.

The PCD Family Support Group supports families affected by PCD, an inherited condition mainly affecting the lungs.

Stonac Website Development

We are redeveloping our website and this page is phase one which is a simple holding page. Phase two will be ready in February 2019. It will remain clear and simple but contain more information about what we do, some case studies and our published articles.


We have supported a few people over the last ten years in an informal way with their career changes or development of their freelance project management businesses.

Given there is a demand out there, we are developing a Mentoring proposition to support project sponsors and project managers, both in permanent and freelance arrangements. More on this in due course.
