Business Unit 1: Project Management Consultant

Contracts Management and Costs Optimization, drivers of Company profit

Contract Negotiation before placement of order, Schedule review and optimizations, Dispute negoziation rather then simple Company Cost optimizations are the basis of day to day activity which could lead a Company to big losses if not adequately managed.

Our team of experienced consultants works closely with clients to identify their specific needs, develop effective strategies, and implement sustainable solutions.

Whether it’s streamlining operations, optimizing resources, or improving overall performance, we offer tailored guidance to drive growth and success.







In a market context like the one we live in today, characterized by:

  • very high competitiveness (also at international level),
  • narrow margins
  • and sometimes constraints related to political/governmental influence (example: European policies on the quantities that can flow into the market, sales conditions and, to a lesser extent, other factors).

Corporate efficiency in terms of cost control (for day-to-day activities), as well as specific project management, plays a fundamental role in determining the success or otherwise of the company.

The objective of this Business Unit is to identify within the client company the growth opportunities hidden in cost management, supplier management, project planning and work scope management inefficiencies (desired or unintended variations in scope ).

All this will manifest itself with an increase in liquidity that the company will be able to use for:

  • Get more profits (higher contribution margins)
  • Support investments
  • Hire new resources/Talents.

In addition to the above, the client company will retain the know-how in terms of approach to the business, necessary to ensure continuous improvement and identify future opportunities.
