Pronotia Technology Optimization Program™ (TOP)
 The Pronotia TOP™ Model

The Technology Optimization Program is:

  • A consistent, proven methodology developed and used by the Pronotia team across multiple industries and markets - defined and refined over many years to deliver the best results with the shortest turnaround time.

  • A flexible, fluid program designed to offer mutiple degrees of detail to match the level of specificity, budget requirements, and operating philosophy unique to your business.

  • A modular, targeted anaysis of your IT organization, resulting in pragmatic, useful metrics and solutions that you can implement right away - many of which will require little or no additional help (or fees).

         A common approach to all engagements:

  • Listen to the client’s needs, business model, vision, goals
  • Gather information and key data points
  • Evaluate initial findings and establish desired outcome

  • Define specific goals, quantifiable metrics, success factors
  • Counsel on proposed next steps, value add, high-level strategy
  • Gain executive support and consensus among stakeholders

  • Implement the strategy and associated action plans
  • Measure and Report as defined by the goals and success factors
  • Refine the operations based on reporting, feedback, and alignment

The Technology Optimization Program is NOT:

  • A "cookie-cutter" template pulled off the shelf and re-used at each client, then cleverly rebranded to appear unique to your business. This practive is very common among most consulting groups as an effort to produce fast results and yiuld high margins. Unfortunately, the analysis and subsequent results match the effort and very little is ultimately gained (but it all looks so nice).

  • An over engineered effort to run up a lot of time and dollars, resulting in myriad documents, too many data points, all with a large operational impact to your organization.

  • A high level, lofty analysis that reveals little useful information, deployable advice or practical solutions, with a large price tag and a sales pitch to "dig deeper".
