Thank you for visiting PPTetc.com. This is a simple website. We can do complicated and we can do complex, but when it can be simple, let’s do simple!
PPT = People Process Technology. Any successful and sustainable business change must address people, process and technology – in that order.
Why that order?
Because failing to engage with the people who you need to implement the change will ensure the change isn’t sustainable. They execute the processes every day so they know them best. And they know where they work. And where they don’t. There is no point implementing, changing or improving the technology unless you understand and simplify the processes first. And only the people can help us do that.
Because change isn’t a one-off event. Successful organisations and teams recognise that after any major change has been embedded, continuous improvement is necessary to maintain a competitive edge. And, again, PPT applies.
“IT projects” are not “IT” projects
All businesses now have to be digital businesses if they are to survive. That means there is no longer such a thing as an IT project (if there ever was…). In a digital business, there are only business projects and they will inevitably involve technology.
PPT etc included “etc” in its name because we also recognise that sometimes you don’t need someone to drive strategic change but to help deal with imposed change. You may need an experienced person to steady the ship when key employees leave and their successor hasn’t started. Or there may be disruption to the business from a crisis such as a security breach , supply chain issue or business continuity plan invocation.
