A Fresh Perspective

On Project Delivery

Convergent, the Dublin-based document and information management consultancy is thrilled to announce Gillian Doyle as our new Programme Director. Gillian joins us with an impressive 23-year background in project delivery across diverse sectors like Finance, Banking, and Global Pharma and is ready to bring a fresh, structured approach to our project management processes.

Gillian’s arrival marks a new era for us at Convergent. Her extensive background encompassing roles from Business Analyst to Scrum Master and Associate Director for Solutions Delivery, combined with her academic roots in Computer Science, positions her perfectly to steer our projects to success.

As Programme Director, Gillian’s remit goes beyond just overseeing project delivery. She’s here to inject structure and focus into every project, ensuring they are not just completed, but done so on budget and on time. Her mission is to implement best practices across the board, ensuring efficient use of resources and capacity planning. She’s all about planning smart, managing resources wisely, and introducing project management methods that make a real difference.

What sets Gillian apart is her commitment to transparent methodology and communication. With Gillian at the helm, clients will be continually informed about their project’s progress, fostering a relationship based on trust and clarity. Her expertise in risk management is set to transform how we handle potential issues, proactively avoiding problems and enhancing project outcomes. Her approach means fewer surprises and more success stories.

Gillian’s role is all about delivering what our clients need, when they need it, without any fuss.

In short, Gillian Doyle is here not just to lead but to innovate. Her vision for project delivery at Convergent revolves around clear communication, effective planning, and adherence to best practices – all geared toward delivering outstanding results for our clients.

Niall McConnell, Managing Director of Convergent, remarked on the recent appointment: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Gillian, a professional of such high calibre and extensive experience, to our leadership team. Convergent is fundamentally about people – both our clients’ and our own. Gillian’s appointment brings unparalleled expertise in our clients’ project and programme management. This aligns perfectly with our strategic vision, as we navigate an exciting growth trajectory. Organisations like those we work with are increasingly recognising the necessity of a robust strategy to manage their information, rather than simply accumulating more software. The timing of Gillian joining us is pivotal, reinforcing our growth ambitions and enhancing our strategic capacity to address the evolving needs of our clients”

Gillian herself added: “I am thrilled to join the dynamic team at Convergent as Programme Director, especially at such an exciting time for the business.  With my background in project delivery, I plan to introduce efficient and effective management strategies, focusing on clear communication and best practice implementation. My goal is to ensure project success, aligning closely with our client’s needs and expectations. I look forward to contributing positively to our team’s achievements and driving projects to successful outcomes.”
