Get the big picture or dive into the detail – You Choose
Your team develops the strategies and projects which you are confident will meet the business challenges your organisation is facing, but as time passes, three things usually happen in managing the program of work. Firstly, as a leader you get caught in the day to day issues and end up losing sight of the big picture. Secondly, you are bombarded with templates and reports which make it difficult to separate the ‘noise from the key ‘signals’ and thirdly, you don’t want to wait until the end of each month to know where the program is at. The result is a program of work which can go off the rails leading to reactive rather than proactive decision-making or worse.
Enter Hornet, a cloud-based Tracking and Reporting Tool developed using our experience gained through large projects including Integrations and Mergers, Cost Reduction Programs, Strategic/Business Plans and large BAU programs of work.

I knew that tough Problem would bring a pragmatic approach to designing, documenting and implementing our requirements, and that they would be capable of completing this intensive piece of work within the prescribed deadlines... They compiled a response that was both comprehensive & addressed The Rock’s requirements, but they also positioned it to meet the future needs of our organisation. Overall, they delivered a great “fit for purpose” outcome for The Rock.Stuart McDonaldFmr CEO , The Rock
Tough Problem was engaged by the C&K Association Limited’s Board to undertake a strategic and operational review following the resignation of the former CEO. After working with the Tough Problem team, the leadership team gained a better understanding of the business and the service to our key stakeholders. The guidance and assistance they gave us in developing focused initiatives to improve our total organisation was invaluable. Tough Problem was able to provide key insight on parts of the business that surprised a number of our long standing employees! They are a master of turning complexity in simplicity. With the help of Tough Problem we were able to improve our overall service to the front line staff, our head office accountability to each other and generate the largest surplus in C&K history. It was a great team to have around in our time of need.Mel ComerfordActing CEO C&K Association Limited
