About us

Core Consulting Group (CCG) was established in 2006 as one of Melbourne’s first PMO specialist consultancies, providing services to many of Australia’s top businesses and Government departments.

A proven track record

CCG rapidly gained a reputation as thought-leaders, led by Martin Vaughan and Chris Dwyer, CCG has helped its clients build their own project, program and portfolio management capability through pragmatic, best-practice improvements as well as hands-on support and innovation.

Our focus is on improving productivity and problem solving through our advisory (consulting) services promoting better ways of working and a focus on customer success. For projects and programs, this means delivering the strategic outcomes or benefits needed within the allocated timeframe and budget. For portfolios, the focus is on delivering the right projects and delivering the strategic plan.

For resource managers and application managers, this means delivering capability as efficiently and effectively as possible. For product managers and continuous delivery teams, the emphasis is on delivering value in a lean and agile environment.

Our experience with tools and process improvement together with training, coaching, and education underpins our three current service streams:
Advice, Tools and People.
