Delivering great work time after time requires rigour and process, not just creativity. Today’s projects are too complex and important to get by with the ad-hoc ways of the past.
I help you overcome these challenges and positively embrace operational processes.
The benefits of process
Implementing and optimising standard processes brings many benefits:
- Eliminating wasted effort, such as rework
- Reduced impact of staff changes or absence
- Teams can be scaled quickly and easily
- Quality is built in and naturally improves over time
- Creativity increases as less time is spent worrying about project administration
- More time to innovate and greater professionalism leads to better outcomes and increased profitability
- Stress levels are reduced and the work becomes enjoyable again
Ultimately, you need to have processes upon which to build, develop and grow. Without them you’ll be reliant on key individuals and stuck at ‘level 1’.
A practical approach
I’m a strong advocate of agile methodologies and lean thinking.
We’ll start with your current ways of working and quickly capture this as a standard, repeatable playbook. This allows your work to continue while we introduce changes in a measurable way.
We involve your whole team too. Developing a culture of ongoing improvement and lasting change only happens when everyone’s included.
And it works. I’ve helped many businesses achieve significant improvements this way, and it’s exactly the same approach I use for operating Tall Projects.
You’re in safe hands

“We have worked with Tall Projects for over 3 years and regard it as a great partnership. Ed can provide valuable strategic input and helicopter view (clearly not a challenge with his height!), whilst also rolling his sleeves up and getting involved with the day-to-day delivery of projects when needed.
We have found Ed flexible, accommodating and knowledgeable – a true asset to our team.” Mark Andrews, Managing Director, T4Connex
“Invest and Fund have worked with Tall Projects for 10 months and over that period Tall Projects have had a clear vision of the technical project management required to take Invest and Fund to the next level. I would not hesitate to recommend Tall Projects and look forward to working with them again.” David Turner, CEO, Invest and Fund
“Ed has helped us enormously in setting up procedures and workflow for our development team. He brought real-world, hands-on experience with other companies and helped to fast-track our growth and development output.” Martin Dell, Founder, Kyero.com

Comparing the product and the team before and after Ed’s work I can clearly say that our velocity and quality are on a completely different level.” Sergey Novik, Senior Ruby on Rails Developer
