The Optimation Way

Managing for business outcomes requires a new mind set – a shift from delivering basic functionality to a solid business outcomes focus.

Like their counterparts in other parts of the world, leading New Zealand organisations are looking to technology-led transformation to drive efficiency and innovation in the digital economy. However, optimising business outcomes in an increasingly complex environment requires expert navigation and professional skills. Optimation has developed a unique method, The Optimation Way, to provide our customers with the thought leadership and expertise they need.

The Optimation Way allows us to provide a single, high-level delivery framework for sustained business change as a general model for the way we work. The framework provides an end-to-end view across all of your product and business processes to enable clear paths to emerge in the face of increasing complexity, financial and capability constraints.

It is a blend of EQ (emotional quotient) and IQ (intellectual quotient) that empowers our people to do their best work using tools, processes and methodologies that bridge the technology and business domain to deliver the outcomes you are seeking.
