The easiest way to understand Rullion Change Delivery – The House Analogy

A lot of customers and colleagues have come to us and asked what is Rullion Change Delivery (RCD)? It can understandably cause some confusion as the name Rullion has been synonymous with recruitment and contingent labour for over 40 years.    


As a total workforce solution provider, Rullion’s Change Delivery offering was born out of a desire to help customers successfully deliver change, by managing the stages of a change project on their behalf. We do this by utilising our heritage of forming talented teams in conjunction with our in-house change leaders.  


Practically, we achieve this through improved mobilisation, performance management, project management and knowledge transfer. We then ensure our customers only pay for a successful outcome.  


However, this explanation hasn’t always helped clarify what we are about.  


Wanting to find a simple way of explaining what RCD is, we came up with the analogy of building a house. 


As you can imagine there are lots of different stages when building a house. 


RCD doesn’t directly complete every stage; we simply manage each step of the project. 


For example, we oversee the architects, and we get the drawings approved by the owner. 


We coordinate and manage the construction workers, the surveyors, and the interior designers. Sometimes they are our sub-contractors, sometimes they work directly for the owner. Regardless, our job is to make sure they do their parts at the right time, to the right standard. 


We’re on the hook for making sure the house gets built in the right way, to the right standard, in the right time.  


Sometimes we help the owner just to design the house (Analysis & Architecture).  


Sometimes we help them to build the house (Delivery). 


Sometimes we help them mid-build (Turnaround).  


Sometimes we provide support to the existing team (Assurance). 


And finally, sometimes it’s a single house (small project), sometimes a mansion (large project), more often it’s owning parts of building an entire street (programme).
