A company's technology organization should support its business strategy, not constrain it. AaronRichards focuses first on the strategic needs of our clients' businesses to determine the technology capabilities needed to support their long-term goals. We help companies confidently address technology-related decisions and ensure their IT organizations and operating models are agile and effective, equipping them to cut through the noise of fleeting technology trends to create enduring results.

​Our consultants are especially adept at helping companies through major business transformations or re-inventions of their technology organizations to become more nimble and agile.

We bring a range of technology capabilities that help our clients address five key areas:

  • ​​Business/Technology Strategy Alignment: Business/Technology Strategy is the creation of a business technology vision and strategy that links enterprise objectives and technology capabilities based on a common business operating model, and focuses on increasing business growth and profitability. Technology helps companies transform themselves and grow their business. AaronRichards helps clients that are embarking on major growth or change that is heavily technology-dependent to identify the optimal future state of IT, aligned with business needs, and then jointly develop an implementation blueprint.

  • IT Benchmarking & Performance Improvement: IT Benchmarking & Performance Improvement evaluates overall IT organizational effectiveness and efficiency (including spending) in comparison with peer and World-Class organizations, and provides detailed recommendations, improvement initiatives, and transformation road maps. Underperforming IT negatively affects business performance. AaronRichards works with companies seeking to address their IT efficiency problems to not only reduce costs, but to improve and develop capabilities that enable innovation and agility.

  • IT Program & Project Management: AaronRichards’ program management approach helps our clients manage several IT projects, some which are integrated and some of which may be stand alone. All of which is intended to improve an organization's overall IT performance. Our IT Project Management approach helps our clients with the process of planning, organizing and delineating responsibility for the completion of an organizations specific or individual IT project(s).

  • IT Service Delivery Model: The IT Service Delivery Model (SDM) comprises the design, development, and/or deployment of the way in which IT services and solutions are delivered and supported across the enterprise. The SDM includes service placement, process sourcing, process design, enabling technology, skills & talent, governance & organization, information. AaronRichards helps organizations determine the best way for IT to deliver and support technology services and solutions across the enterprise.

  • ApplicationPortfolio Management: AaronRichards’ application portfolio management services offer a framework to decide on a portfolio strategy and then assess and govern the portfolio on an on-going basis. We enable IT organizations to align more closely with business, respond quickly to environmental changes, address regulatory concerns, enhance the quality of IT budgeting, and lower the total cost of IT by enhancing the IT portfolio.
