Some recent feedback from mcmahons customers:

Shona McMahon as Manager / Strategic Planning provided the perfect leadership for the executive team at Genesis Energy to put together their five year Strategic Plan and Business Unit plans. This also included the KPI’s to measure the plans’ success in an easily understood model that could be applied to large or small businesses.

Shona has supported and assisted the Ngatamariki Geothermal development project team to interpret and identify key issues surrounding the project. Shona has been able to articulate these issues clearly within our reporting for executive team governance and guidance. This has ensured the timely management of issues expediting and realizing better project and business outcomes.

Shona has also facilitated workshops to deliver key work streams within the project bringing together at times desperate work groups including external stakeholders. Articulating and interpreting complex messages and developing a business framework to deliver these work streams have maintained project deliverables.

Shona will remain a key team member in the strategic delivery of this project.

Shona, from mcmahons, was able to work incredibly efficiently given her business and industry knowledge, therefore providing a quality job well within budget. Working closely with the Metrowater team Shona gathered operating results to allow end of year performance to be reported transparently and accurately. In addition the accompanying
operating results commentary was well written with the right level and pitch of analysis and messaging that was required. Overall, a good commercial operator that integrates well to produce a quality outcome.

Shona passed on her strategic and industry experience to Project Managers, in how to convey the right level of information for executive team members and the Board. A more strategic and focussed monthly report is now produced. Having that external ‘go to’ with the right knowledge ensures the quality of reporting in the midst of a lot of complex and technical information and it works well for our team.

Shona’s experience in business planning and skill at capturing our strategies was highly effective in rebuilding Generation’s business plan. She understood our issues
– organisational, industry and environmental
– and was therefore able to hit the ground running making for a cost-effective result.

Through her understanding of our business needs, Shona has helped lift the quality of our routine project reports to a level expected from a senior executive audience. In achieving these gains, the process has become more efficient and is therefore more cost-effective for our business.
