Program Management Support – FMCG

Simplot Australia – Program Management Support

Simplot Australia is a Food Services company in Australia with some of Australia’s favourite food brand businesses including Edgell, Chiko, Birds Eye, Harvest, Leggo’s, John West, Lean Cuisine and Top Cut.

Core Consulting Group was engaged to uplift the PMO and to implement specific project management practice standards including Core Consulting Groups scheduling and reporting standards.

We implemented schedule and financial governance to enable accurate and timely reporting. We then enhanced project information capture and reporting to include, actual hours, separation of OPEX and CAPEX costs on projects and progress reporting against baseline.

The outcome of this engagement was timely and accurate reporting which gave stakeholders great confidence in decision making.  In addition, the revised model allowed greater accuracy in project financials to assist the finance department in financial reporting.


Key Elements of the solution included:

  • Develop reporting workflows
  • Develop governance model for financial information
  • Develop gate model
  • Develop deliverables process and list
