Site relocation / Contract start up

Commonly attempted using the existing and already stretched management team, this activity is a key area of interim management support for Davies & Robson. Providing dedicated, experienced management resource to support the lead up to a site relocation or contract change can be invaluable in maintaining customer service levels and militating against the risks associated with the challenging transfer of a live operation.
