About Seven

Our Vision

Seven Consulting 's vision is to build a world class reputation and brand founded on delivering maximum value for our clients through successful and quality engagements. Creating exceptional outcomes for our clients is our top priority. Our passion is to be a game changer for our clients by making their most complex and important projects and programs successful.

What we do

We are a team of delivery professionals providing Project and Program management consultancy services. Our clients primarily engage us to take responsibility for program delivery and/or program office management. We also provide related services such as external program reviews where management may require additional assurance as to a current program's structure, status or risk profile. Our track record is over 95% delivery success compared to an industry standard of 39% [Chaos Manifesto 2013 - Standish Group].

Our clients trust us. Our first clients are still trusting us with their most important projects and programs. Every client since inception is a reference site for Seven Consulting. We believe this to be a unique success story and are happy to share our complete list of references.

Seven Consulting have offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Manila.

Our Approach

Seven Consulting recognises that whilst each client's program is different, a number of common principles can be applied. These principles are our core values:

  • Teamwork
  • Transparency
  • Delivery


We focus exclusively on the delivery of key programs for our blue chip clients. We work with the executives and delivery teams of these organisations to achieve their desired results. We ensure the alignment of all key stakeholders (management, vendors and program staff) into one team that has a common vision and path to success.


Common sense and easy to use project and program tools bring clarity to a program's critcal path and enable contextual and metric based reporting to communicate within the program team and to external stakeholders. Our transparent approach ensures all parties have a clear understanding of the programs current status and risk profile in the context of the overall business objectives.

Seven Consulting is an independent company that has no formal or informal relationships or partnerships. This ensures that we can provide our clients with truly transparent and independent advice and avoid any perception of bias.


We focus on the underlying fundamentals of the program, the business objectives, how can they be delivered and the interrelationship and relative priorities between timing, scope, quality and cost. We then define the path to success and over-communicate it. After commencement of the program, we undertake regular reviews of our destination and progress and subsequent fine-tune direction and speed until delivered.

These principles along with strong change control and a clear business focus feed delivery, meeting the client expectations around scope, quality, timeframe and cost.

Our People

We strive to create an environment where Australia's top delivery professionals are provided with challenging work and are supported and rewarded in line with their achievements. We carefully recruit, hire and invest to retain only the top 10% of delivery professionals. To support this, we have a unique recruiting process that assists us in identifying the real achievers as opposed to the well-presented but less substantial candidates. We hire individual practitioners because we believe in them, not because we have a specific client role, we inform the client of this rather than put forward a person with a less than excellent fit for the role.

Creating a direct alignment between client satisfaction and consultant appraisals has helped us drive the right outcome for our clients. We also believe in te health of our consultants through work/life balance by ensuring they are not overworked for long periods of time. We do not post resources outside of their home city for longer than a week or two unless mutually agreed. 

All of our team are permanent staff with an average tenure of over 4 years.
