Our 5-Step Approach

Step 1: Scope

There are three questions to determine which intervention would suit your needs:


How much do you want to save?


When do you want to save it?


What is your investment capacity?

Step 2 & 3: Analyse

Choosing where and how to make interventions:

Step 2: Define Structure & Existing Spend

We will review documents and conduct interviews to understand the structure and distribution of spend across your portfolio and the scope and timelines associated with each of your projects. 

This information will guide whether our recommendations for intervention are at the programme or project level. 

Step 3: Categories Of Intervention

Depending on your answers to the three questions in Step 1, we will recommend interventions that either:

  • Do the same with less. Focus on efficiency by optimising existing resources and processes to achieve project/programme goas while minimising costs.
  • Do less with less. The project/programme scope is intentionally reduced to match the available resources, ensuring cost control.

Step 4: Selecting Your Interventions From The Alchemmy Cost Reduction Matrix

We will select a suite of interventions to help you achieve your goals identified in Step 1, regarding your: Target, Timeline and Investement.

Step 5: Developing A Roadmap To Guide Implementation Of Interventions

Once the suite of cost reduction interventions have been selected, we will develop a roadmap to outline the activities required and propose a phasing for implementation. We will also work with you to ensure you’re well-prepared to present the roadmap to the rest of your business for buy-in.
