METHODIt’s Value helps you to speed the shift from IT as a cost centre to strategic partner by shifting the conversation to business outcomes
Our way of working
Our approach is entirely dedicated to the results you want to achieve. Together we determine the fastest route to success, take care of the implementation and train your employees, to make sure continuity is assured.
With our expertise in TBM (Technology Business Management) we help you create business success by improving grip on the costs, quality and performance of your IT organization, and better alignment between IT, finance and the business and consequentially the creation of value for the organization.
With various scans we map the current contribution of IT the success of your organization. We give answers to, among other things, the following questions:
- Which costs are paid for, for which purpose and by whom?
- Which options do you have for reducing costs and increasing revenues?
- How do internal processes, systems and data currently support your demand for cost reduction and innovation?
- Which areas are ideally suited to significantly improve IT performance in a short time?
The determination of the strategy is done together. We will create a concrete plan of action within a few weeks. We draw up this plan with the employees and departments involved, in order to increase commitment and confidence in the chosen solution. The strategic plan provides answers to questions such as:
- Which projects and scenarios effectively contribute to improving the performance of IT?
- Within which timeframe we achieve the desired results?
- Which impact do these projects have on your processes, people and systems?
- How do we ensure that your employees successfully familiarize themselves with these changes?

Technology Business Management
We work according to the framework and philosophy of Technology Business Management (TBM). In the first place, TBM helps you to model and report management information faster and more reliably. Secondly, it offers you the opportunity to connect the digital world of IT with your business. This allows you to use technology as a lever for better business performance.
TBM structures your IT cost management, improves the connection between your internal software systems and automates your reporting cycle, so you can focus on effectively managing your organization.
Achievements become visible only when they are measured, shared and understood. That is why we establish the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that are necessary for the effective management of your organization. We then ensure that the chosen KPIs are reported frequently and for the most part automatically, so that you can always see where you stand. Is the trend going in the right direction due to the actions taken? Does it still have to be adjusted?
Your time is not wasted into collecting data and making reports. Your time is used well in the actions you can take on the basis of clear information.
Continuity & Change
Processes and systems are there for support, but your employees make the difference. Effective cooperative behavior has repeatedly proven to be decisive for the success of projects and guaranteeing the continuity of implemented improvements.
With our experience in the field of change management, we ensure optimum cohesion between processes, systems and employees. In this way we help teams to implement changes quickly and to achieve the desired results. We do this according to a specific approach that leads to lasting improvements in team effectiveness and mutual cooperation.
