Generating optimal relevant solutions requires absolute clarity from strategy through to requirement definition. Our services here support bridging of the gap between IT and User/ Business communities in order to identify not just adequate but best fit solutions.
The INTERMEDI-IT service is a specialist service combining aspects from a range of IT and business related disciplines to deliver cost effective business support and consultancy in:-
* Business and requirements analysis
* User creativity coaching
* Solution conceptual design & modelling
* Proposal development
* IT Project management and control
* Risk and supplier management
* Intermediation and team facilitation
All of these skills should be represented in an effective IT project but many are rarely present.
When suppliers have the predominance of these abilities, solution effectiveness and the client’s interests can also become jeopardised by commercial priorities.
‘In-House’ consultancy & support
We can partner with you on a project basis, to establishing and proliferating and sharing a true clear understanding of business objectives and technical possibilities of the project, requirements and user issues.
Assignments generally involve interviews with key stakeholders and often a programme of workshops.
We are then able to facilitate the effective working of joint teams from client and supplier, through technical design to ultimate implementation and user training.
Inter-company consultancy & support
Retained by either client, supplier or jointly we can provide services as an objective intermediary between organisations. Presence of an intermediation function frequently provides reassurance to the client company, eases the requirement gathering time and reduces complexity for the supplier.

Executive and IT Strategy Alignment
Frequently one of the most pressured and complex relationships in the enterprise, the relationship between senior IT management and other functions, at the key strategy level often fails to achieve the best integration of IT with the business need.
IT executives often complain of too little consultation on the strategic agenda, whilst other functions complain of inappropriate solutions.
We also provide Executive Coaching to promote increased effectiveness of the relationship between IT executives and other key executive functions.
