How We Work

The IPG Approach.

There isn’t a one size fits all approach.

And there isn’t a magic bullet. But one thing we know for sure is that the challenges you’re facing are similar to the ones faced by other leading organisations throughout Australia.

How do we know this? Because we’ve helped them uncover and implement the changes that allow them to use technology to grow their way.

We leverage our deep industry knowledge and experience to tailor our approach to the uniqueness of your set of circumstances.

It’s expertise, combined with common sense.

Our strength lies within our ability to identify the key breakthrough capabilities that will help your organisation achieve success. By applying industry standards, our own frameworks and methods, combined with pragmatism and a no-nonsense approach, we can solve the most important technological challenges within your organisation.

We realise the need for a range of methodologies and we adapt our approach to achieve the best outcome. You don’t have to do everything – just the things that are going to create the most impact within your business.

What we deliver.

  • Step 1

    Quick Wins

    Once we’ve taken the brief, we use discovery and analysis techniques to identify quick and easy wins you can implement straight away.

  • Step 2

    Methodology and Frameworks

    Next, we’ll go deeper and recommend the right methodology and framework to achieve your goal. This could include things like investment decisions and prioritisation, benefits identification and business case development, all of which can be leveraged and repeated beyond our work together.

  • Step 3

    Program Accelerator

    Any assets we create, including planning and estimation, can continue beyond our engagement and accelerate success as part of ongoing activity.

We use proven project management methodologies

The methods we use to manage your project have been used to deliver outcomes for our clients across Australia in a wide variety of industry sectors.

They are proven and repeatable and we work closely with you to align our overall methodology, governance and management practices with the ones you already use, so we work as one integrated team.

Importantly, we believe in being accountable and we won’t go off and hide when it comes time to provide you with details about progress. Our project management process provides regular status reports and the timing, content and structure of these reports are tailored to each client.

You commission the work.

This usually has a plan as defined in our proposal.

We work together to plan the delivery.

We’ll agree timing, confirm the approach, understand stakeholders and plan the engagement and map out the logistics.

We deliver the work.

This is usually broken up into stages with clear deliverables achieved at the completion of each stage.

We complete a handover.

Once the project is complete, we confirm the engagement was met and delivered and we handover all the materials that support the work.

Delivery in a COVID-19 World

Despite the inability to travel and preference for working from home, Information Professionals is working successfully with all our clients in delivering strategic engagements.

With clients across Australia, including in regional areas, our team are well trained in work-from-home arrangements and have been working in a combination of work-from-home, in office, and on client sites for many years. Our systems are setup to support this way of working, so our transition to remote work has been seamless.

Our clients have also transitioned easily from any activities usually conducted on site, including workshops, meetings, interviews, discussions and collaborative work.

We look forward to working with you in a remote working capacity, and you can read more about how we’re doing this here.
