Creative solutions to your most challenging problems

Here are some of the common problems faced by businesses every day:

PROBLEMS WITH THE INDUSTRY:

  • Existing frameworks - are born out of Technology standards, which focus on Technology and ignore Business concerns.

  • Existing systems - are really Business Process or Portfolio Application Management tools (and not business architecture, or business transformation at all).

PROBLEMS WITH PROGRAMME MANAGEMENT:

  • FOCUS ON DELIVERY (not Discovery) - Which are Technology-led (as opposed to Business-led), that miss the big picture & strategic concerns.

  • FOCUS ON DESIGN (not Implementation) - which focus on the WHAT (the end looks like)? With little or no consideration for WHY? WHERE, WHEN or HOW (the business needs to change, wants to change, where, when or how to change)?

REQUIRES A NEW APPROACH:

  • A BUSINESS-DRIVEN FRAMEWORK - That puts the Business first – is developed FOR and OWNED by the Business.

  • A COMPREHENSIVE FRAMEWORK - Integrates industry best practises, is agile and caters for changes and risk management.
