Positioning

Departing from an IT background, but sensitive to the growing importance of the BA and PM approaches, our consulting firm has built its offer since its creation in 2014 on the interaction of three disciplines: BA, PM and IT. Our consultants have, the most of the time, versatile skills and are able to work on different missions in order to accompany our clients on various concerns or initiatives targeting to deliver, optimize or transform current business processes, that are purely business, purely technological or mixed.


BA’s role is specifically to analyze the business field in order to study the feasibility and profitability of a business initiative, to identify and propose one or more solution alternatives, which will not necessarily be technology oriented. To do this, BA uses a series of techniques, such as stakeholder interviews, workshops, observation, use cases and user stories, process and/or data modeling, benchmarking, brainstorming , etc. Its main activities concern the understanding of the context, the collection and validation of needs, their transformation into requirements by analysis, and the design of solutions to bring added value to all relevant stakeholders.
PM is an approach that aims to organize and strategically manage the smooth running and deployment of a project or program, if the need relates to a set of related projects. To do this, it must define content and deliverables, establish and follow a planning and budget, but also manage stakeholders, human resources, subcontracting, communication, quality of deliverables, inherent risks, etc. Therefore we can define it as a set of coordinated activities in order to achieve an objective that meets the requirements, while taking into account previously identified constraints, change management and, more and more frequently, the post deployment recurrent operating phase as well.
IT systems were first used in organizations as a tool to improve productivity. Over time and in the large majority of sectors of activity, IT has become a critical element, indispensable to the proper functioning of companies. Indeed, high-performance IT enables automation, process optimization, outsourcing of low-value tasks, improving customer relations, and so on. IT needs, and especially web projects, have led to the emergence of new, so-called agile, project management methods. The IT function has thus been a pioneer in the adoption of standardized and structured approaches like PM and BA, as well as a driver in the diffusion of these approaches within the organizations.
