What are the benefits we can bring?


Large scale business changes are typically complex, costly and risky. Great project management increases the likelihood of success.


We have supported organisations with such challenges for over 20 years. We support the full project lifecycle from discovery, through initiation, requirements, design, delivery and closure.


In some cases, we are asked to recover problematic projects or perform post-project reviews to extract the learning.


Our speciality is the Automotive sector with OEMs, Retailers and Support organisations. We have tackled changes across all areas and, increasingly, in the ‘Future Auto’ world including direct selling, agency, B2C Digital Services and new services.

We have worked extensively with several OEM brands and their networks.

Business Change Leadership

Stonac supports organisations develop and deliver business change programmes. In doing so, we ensure business outcomes are at the heart of the set up and planning process. We have managed many such programmes, so fully understand the likely pitfalls and how to avoid them. This includes working the full programme / project life cycle as well as PMO set up and management.

Such change carries risk and absorbs money and focus from the ‘day job’. It is, therefore, imperative that change is led properly, from start to finish. We can provide that leadership.
