Take back control

"Methods brought a wealth of knowledge, experience and ideas to the table. Their assistance was invaluable, their honesty and integrity welcomed, and their agility was both critical and collaborative. I am very grateful to Methods for assisting us to achieve a challenging time frame to take back control of the IT estate."

Simon Liste

CTO

Methods' team put us first

"It was clear to us that Methods had the knowledge and expertise that stood head and shoulders above the competition. The delivery has been very professional, and importantly the business felt that the Methods team put us first, and we could trust them. The consultants brought a wealth of knowledge and experience, giving the business the confidence to break away from the normal collaboration approach and set up a delivery model that met the business needs without compromise."

Paul Bell

IT Manager

Building a partnership

"Working with Methods has felt absolutely like a partnership, and one of the things I would say is that our successes have felt like their successes and vice versa."

Sam Mowbray

Chief Operating Officer

Back on track

"I had high-performing, credible people doing challenging jobs arriving mid-project and having to pick-up and run. I am attracted to the collegiality of Methods…the mixed Methods and (incumbent) team are working well together. This enabled us to up our game, progress at a faster rate, delivering a more comprehensive and professional service, resulting in the budget being back on track."

An exemplar

"A model for how all statistics should be developed. An exemplar."

Ed Humpherson

Head of the UK Statistics Authority

Transformed

"The nature of our funding business is complex. The work we are doing is transforming how the core funding business will operate in the future. Whilst we did not set out to establish Methods as our main supplier, the quality of work, services and people has naturally led us to this place, helping us to grow and develop our internal skills in both user centred agile delivery and platform developments."

Dean Williams

Service Delivery Deputy Director
