Consulting and Advisory

Optimation’s Consulting practice helps customers drive and manage technology-enabled business change across their people, processes and platforms. We have a big appetite for real outcomes, so one thing we won’t do is write long consulting reports that end up gathering dust on a bookshelf. Instead, our consultants are committed to helping you envision and then implement positive change that delivers tangible business value.

We have deep capability and expertise working with industry best practice techniques and approaches, such as TOGAF for Enterprise Architecture and Prince2 and PMI for project management. This broad perspective and deep capability means we don’t come into your business with any preconceived ideas or limiting assumptions. Instead, we get to know how your business works and we collaborate with you to clearly define your goals and the challenges you face. We then work with you to choose the best way forward, ensuring you get both the consulting deliverables and the business outcomes you require.

Our Consulting offerings include:
