Oversight and Support to the Project Team

At Zethu Consulting Services (ZCS) we differentiate ourselves from other development companies by retaining full corporate responsibility for the delivery of projects. Whilst we deploy highly qualified and competent individuals to the field, we provide them with support from the home office that comes from equally capable and competent individuals. Further to this, to ensure that the project team is not boggled down with administrative work, Home Office provides administrative support, including contract management and administration.

The responsibility of the Home (Backstopping) Team is based on the “Project Technical Lead” concept where ZCS as a company takes ultimate responsibility on client engagement on technical issues, keeping the proposed Specialists on track, making sure milestones are reached as per workplan (what is referred to as “active programme management”).
