Technology-driven solutions are becoming the norm in our industry. More than ever, customers expect us to assess and adopt innovation to optimise our performance and create more value. The Kent Global Centre of Excellence (CoE) helps keep us at the forefront of change in every strand of our business.
Our CoE acts as a hub at Kent for the exploration and adoption of new technologies, tools, techniques, and practices. It sets us apart, giving us opportunity to elevate governance, operational performance and identifies best practices to drive our company forward and benefit our customers at every level.
Aligned to Project Management Institute (PMI) best practices, the CoE delivery assurance processes are designed to optimise value and project performance. Our world class Project Assurance Review Process provides a comprehensive and structured independent review at each critical stage gate on our projects and supports our objective of delivering projects to the highest standards for our clients.
We maintain detailed technical libraries and a network of experts, both within the organisation and the industry’s leading bodies. Access to this body of knowledge allows us to offer customers leading-edge technical services at every stage of their project.
The CoE drives us towards a culture of continuous improvement within Kent to deliver maximum value across all our businesses. Our Lean Six Sigma Academy provides a framework to train Green Belt Six Sigma specialists and support our lean and agile change programs throughout our organisation.
With our wealth of technical expertise and knowhow, we have established technical communities of practice, which helps us build on success, combine capabilities and ensures the Kent name stands above all others.
