Management Consultancy Framework 1 (RM3745)
Lot 5: Health and Community
Tricordant is delighted to have been awarded a place on the MCF1 framework and to be amongst the highest rankings for both quality of service and pricing. This reflects our overall ethos of doing great work for clients at a realistic cost; delivering genuine value for money.
For this framework we have formed a consortium with two other consultancies; Consilium Partners and Rubicon Health Consulting, with whom we have long-standing relationships. Through the consortium we offer clients a wide range of appropriate services delivered by skilled, professional consultants; the majority of whom have Chief Executive or Director level experience within the NHS, private healthcare, public sector and commercial organisations.
Tricordant is a nimble consultancy able to move at pace and scale up quickly through our highly proficient and experienced network of individual and company partner consultants who supplement our employed team. All our partners are accredited by us and work to our standards and policies as if they were a member of our employed team. We work throughout the UK and Internationally.
Through Lot 5 of the RM3745 Framework, Tricordant offer a comprehensive range of services, including:
- Organisation Development
- Model of Care Development
- Organisation Design
- Service Redesign & Clinical Strategies
- Leadership & Board Development
- Quality & Process Improvement
- Collaboration & Systems Development
- Commissioning Strategies & Plans
- Business Cases
- Workforce Planning
- Financial Planning
- Programme Management
- Estates Strategy
Whilst offering a range of specific individual services, a key element of Tricordant’s service is what we call our integrated approach. As a consultancy specialising in whole systems we always consider any situation through that lens, thereby bringing the full range of our expertise into every assignment; bringing significant and increased benefits to our clients.
We design specific and bespoke interventions tailored to the unique situation and needs of client organisations taking a facilitative and co-creation approach, combining our consultancy expertise with the client’s knowledge and experience of their own organisation. Then, through taking an integrated whole system approach we can appropriately locate the current work within their wider context. We find that this helps clients better understand the decisions to be made, the potential consequences of any actions and how these can be used for positive system energy and avoid negative unintended consequences.
Tricordant as a consultancy work with a wide range of organisations across health and social care, local government, manufacturing, commercial and not for profit. We enable organisations to develop and transform so that the overall business becomes whole and healthy: financially successful and a fulfilling place to work. Our consortium partners, Consilium and Rubicon are particularly focused on working in the public sector and have a deep expertise across this sector; especially within the health and community aspect of this framework lot. We are able to supply a range of case studies and references as required.
Tricordant values are Trust (live up to our promises), Hope (things can be better) and Love (relationships matter). These values are important to us and all our team members work to ensure our behaviours demonstrate these values always; for the benefit of our clients and others with whom we come into contact. Our ethos and values cause us to want to give into the lives of others; which we do financially by giving a percentage of our profits into the Tricordant Foundation which then uses the funds to benefit a range of charitable endeavours. We are a certified BCorp. BCorp is to business what fair trade is to coffee; requiring member businesses to also have social and environmental aims and achievements.
Tricordant are founding sponsors of the European Organisation Design Forum (EODF) with one of our Directors the current Chair. We are also founding sponsors of the Organisation Design Network Europe (ODNE). We are actively involved in the wider development of OD consulting practice through these and other networks, including academic, in which we are involved; such as NTL, Brunel and Edinburgh Napier Universities where we have faculty representation.
We are active within MCF1 and always looking to submit a bid where it is appropriate; so, expect us to at least express interest. No doubt you will have many other opportunities that don’t need to go through the framework and we would welcome the opportunity to talk with you more about these or other potential opportunities within your organisation.
Let’s talk and get to know one another.
