Who We Are

CHARTERMASON IS A PROJECT EXECUTION SPECIALIST MANAGEMENT CONSULTANCY.

We bring resources to develop 21st century management consulting practice leaders, with a passion for execution.

We take a high touch approach to develop a cadre of extraordinary practice leaders whom we call Trusted Executors. Combining business development, personal brand building , practice and talent management, we create personalised growth maps for management consultants tackling 21st century project execution challenges.

Our Purpose

The world’s operating model is changing, knowledge is no longer power, there is a voracious appetite for problem solvers and influence through relationships is valuable.

Only the best execution management consulting talent will remain relevant in an environment characterised by:

  • Savvy clients, many of who have come from consulting backgrounds to fill the line management positions in clients looking to transform themselves;
  • Easy access to intellectual property, once the bastion of knowledge management in large consultancies is now easily accessible on the web;
  • Mobile talent, once viewed as high risk and restricted by the career models of the large consultancies, is now the norm;
  • Commoditisation of services and skills once viewed as specialised and scarce, that are now abundant and cheap; and
  • The ‘big guys’ that aren’t a safe bet any more, selection of the large consultancies no longer assures delivery, rather it becomes an inhibitor to progress.

We are here to revolutionise management consulting by designing and building the Modern Home for the Professional Consultant, an organisation where talent is valued, personal brand and personal IP is mobilised and applied to complex client projects.

Our Competencies

CharterMason categorises its services into two major streams of activity:

1. Strategy into Execution – relates to assisting our clients through the process of planning for transformation.

2. Executing Transformational Change - relates to assisting our clients to manage the key areas of risk that they own throughout the lifecycle of a transformation.

We work purely client side, in essence, helping them help themselves by augmenting their internal capability with project execution specialists where a capability gap exists.

Our Leaders

Our practice is led by Partners – original thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspiring leaders who care about executing complex change.

The Partners are Practice Leaders that work as Trusted Executors with our clients.  They engage through a trusted relationship established by their deep experience in their field of expertise and their career pedigree.

They are incentivised to build small effective teams that work on the client side of large complex change programs, often managing the vendors that the client has selected.

These teams are self-directed under the Partner’s leadership and can operate with the agility and responsiveness required by our clients.
