We have conducted many projects to bootstrap the digital journey of customers in order to provide a quick ROI

Agile methodology & Scrum

Scrum is an agile framework that allows for more effective collaboration among members of a team working on complex project and is becoming an industry standard. We help organizations to shift from traditional project management to Scrum agile project management by providing the tools, training and coaching. We usually start with a high visibility pilot project before launching a companywide roll out in order to adapt the required change management approach.

Maturity analysis

Maturity analysis is an audit tool used to get a snapshot of existing capabilities and processes. The process is used to assess the level of maturity of a given set of factors by using or creating a maturity model with a set of criteria to reach a given maturity level. This model is then used to create a roadmap and measure the progress in terms of maturity. We use models such as CMMI for IT processes and TMMI in the field of testing.

ITSM & ServiceNow expertise

Customer satisfaction and meeting business expectations are the key drivers of Information Technology Service Management (ITSM) development . ITSM is a set of workflows and tools to optimally develop, deliver, and manage IT services. ITSM usually relies on the ITIL model to handle incidents, service requests, problems, and changes. We typically help clients to setup and optimize their ITSM platform such as ServiceNow. Our main focus is to streamline and measure customer service and business satisfaction.

Service catalogs

A service catalog is an organized and curated collection of any and all business and information technology related services that can be performed by, for, or within an enterprise. The Service Catalogue is the only part of the Service Portfolio published to Customers to support the sale and delivery of IT Services. The Service Catalogue includes information about deliverables, prices, contact points, ordering and request processes. The purpose of Service Catalog Management is to provide and maintain a single source of consistent information on all operational services and to ensure that it is widely available to those who are authorized to access it. Our usual missions in this field are to structure the service catalog and to develop the internal marketing of this service catalog.

CIO corporate marketing & communication

Today CIOs must satisfy internal stakeholders and to achieve this goal, it becomes increasingly necessary to setup a structured internal communication and marketing effort to relay the objectives and achievements of the IT division. To bootstrap this marketing drive within IT is typically our first assignment. We then help IT to build-up the required capabilities to maintain and develop its internal marketing.

Change management & training

For many people, uncertainty is uncomfortable. For some, it’s downright paralyzing. If your organization is getting ready to embark on a transformation or if you’ve already done so, you can make the process easier by offering people tools, tips, and some form of change management training. Communication and training are the cornerstone of change management. We lead change management projects to bring about change effectively with timely communication and training plans. When appropriate, we rely on collective workshops to assess the pain points for different profiles in order to build customized change management plans.

Testing and quality strategy

Software testing or Quality Assurance strategies describe how to mitigate product risks for stakeholders at the test level. Our usual starting point is to assess the testing maturity of an organization to then build strategy in terms of sourcing, tooling and methodology. We have helped very large organizations to successfully setup external testing centers, to adopt automated testing approaches and tooling and adapt their testing methodology to agile project methodology. Our consulting team has several testing experts to help you overcome these challenges.
