We bring together process, governance and advanced analytics to deliver value for your business.What we do
What we do
Oakland is a full stack analytics, process and governance company. We don’t believe in silver bullets but we do passionately believe opportunity is at the intersection of these three things.
For over 35 years we’ve been bringing our down to earth, professional approach to create long lasting transformative change to some of the UK’s biggest organisations.
By combining our years of hard-won operational experience with the incredible possibilities offered by advanced analytics, we bring leading edge thinking to uncover valuable insights from data, solving real-world, difficult problems and driving cultural change.
We’re trusted by our clients, realising millions of pounds of ongoing opportunity. We work with many of our clients time and time again – demonstrating our value, and our ability to leave when the job is done.
Less than one in ten megaprojects are delivered on time and on budget, and full realisation of all project outcomes is rare.
The reasons behind such failure rates are themselves often complex, but analysts repeatedly stress the importance of forecasting.Download Now
Oakland has some ridiculously clever people.

Oakland helped align our technical and business teams, saving months of wasted efforts.
Sean Francis, Vodafone
Oakland’s approach to delivering transformational change has been a breath of fresh air. They helped us see the value of combining the improvement of our processes and the use of technology. They were able to cut through the noise and look to apply pragmatic solutions without the complexity.
Jenni Halliday, Contract Operations Director, COMPASS, Serco
The simplicity and effectiveness of Oakland’s approach to strategic planning is very powerful. It has delivered benefits beyond the outcomes expected and, because of its simplicity, made the communication of the strategic plan easier to plan and deliver.
Richard Harpley, EDF
It was a pleasure working with The Oakland Group on developing a framework to aggregate business data and analytics pain and opportunities across our diverse business areas. They genuinely worked with us not just for us, feeling like part of the team, which isn’t something I take for granted when using external consultants. I also appreciated how flexible and responsive they were when our requirements developed during the course of the project.
Peter Eckley, Bank of England
A recent merger between Siemens and Gamesa meant different business units working in several countries had varying approaches to quality improvement. Oakland developed and delivered a black belt course to provide people from across the company with a consistent problem-solving methodology and language. As the pandemic struck, Oakland was able to quickly move from a physical to a virtual training platform, which worked exceptionally well, and enabled us to seamlessly continue with our programme in the challenging circumstances.
