HS2 required specialist support in the delivery of aspects of their critical programmes and their internal transformation programme. They were looking for a partner that could provide multi-disciplinary teams with specialist DDaT skills, working across the technology landscape, including public cloud IaaS/PaaS and leading ISVs.
The partner would need to deliver the services collaboratively, encompassing shared objectives and demonstrating flexibility, innovation, and a value-add culture. Importantly, this partner would need to be willing to share best-practice and build capability to bridge internal skills gaps, providing coaching and mentoring.
The scope of the contract covered all stages of the HS2 IT end-to-end project lifecycle, including but not limited to:
The skill profiles provided covered Architecture, Business Analysis, Service Management, Product Management, Delivery Management, RPA, IdAM, PMO, DevOps Engineering, Business Intelligence, Innovation and Design, and delivery of IoT and RPA solutions.
Green Park People Solutions were pleased to be awarded the contract on the strength of our collaborative and flexible approach, extensive multi-disciplinary talent networks and our track-record delivering complex large-scale Government projects.
We proposed to manage the service through a series of iterative three month work-packages. This provided a level of flexibility to HS2 to adjust the requirement in line with their changing needs and priorities.
The initial statements of work were scoped and agreed with HS2 following a series of discovery meetings during the scoping phase of the service. A governance process was put in place with monthly reviews between Green Park’s dedicated Service Delivery Manager and HS2 activity managers to review progress against deliverables and priorities. This allowed a review point and mechanism to manage change though the agreed change control process. Quarterly reviews were held with HS2s Commercial Lead to review the overarching service and discuss the ongoing and future requirements and overarching work-package.
As part of the contract governance, we agreed an exit process which was written into each of the work packages. This included the Green Park Specialists providing a comprehensive handover, including weekly handover meetings in the month prior to exit, knowledge transfer and upskilling.
At the end of the handover period a final sign off meeting between the Green Park Service Delivery Manager and the HS2 Activity Manager took place, along with an exit meeting between and the Green Park Specialists and Activity Managers. This ensured a seamless handover of company devices & the retirement of accounts/documents in line with the security policies.
