Building standards-centric consulting capabilities

As a Royal Charter company, the client had both statutory responsibilities and some commercial freedom. A concept of offering standards-centric consulting on a commercial basis had been in place for some time but was not being realised. The engagement was to achieve this with the target of establishing the offerings, design and recruitment of a consulting practice.
