Our client, a $1 billion pa insurance broker, needed to engage a top quality interim Project Manager at short notice to manage two change projects. Project 1 involved restructuring within a specialist business unit, relocating the core processing team to an alternative location. Project 2 involved restructuring within another specialist team, relocating administrative functions into lower cost locations. The Project Manager had to be engaged at very short notice due to the need from an accounting perspective to use a project budget which was only available for a further two weeks. In parallel Lexstra had been engaged by another business unit of the same organisation to provide a high calibre interim Project Manager with insurance business process outsourcing expertise for a different change project, the initiation of which had been delayed due to an easing of timescales. The Lexstra client management team, aware of both projects, facilitated an introduction of the stakeholders from the two business units; the PM was redeployed, leading to a highly successful delivery of the restructuring project, within budget and exceeding client expectations.
