Launch of New Innovation Strategy Consulting Practice

  • By: pcadmin on 31 Jan 2015

Procept Associates is proud to extend its consulting offerings to include a new Innovation Strategy Consulting practice designed by Dr. Mark Kozak-Holland, a leader in helping companies learn from the past to help them more effectively plan, execute, and manage their innovation efforts. He notes that most new innovations don't come out of nowhere; rather, they are evolutionary in nature. Innovations tend to leverage or extend past innovations.  Often, studying the process used and the lessons learned from those past innovation projects can help guide executives and senior managers today through difficult decisions by learning from what worked and what failed. This approach also allows one to look at them with perfect hindsight, rather than being clouded by personal connections to the project political environments.

Procept has gathered together several consultants who are experts in helping companies better understand the innovation process so they can gain a competitive edge. Supporting skillsets include problem analysis and problem-solving techniques that foster creative solutions, identifying and applying novel approaches from other industries, and learning what approaches succeed and fail from historically-removed examples to reduce conceptual resistance.

New Management Team Takes Over at Procept

  • By: pcadmin on 06 Jan 2015

2015 will be an exciting year for Procept Associates Ltd. The company's  founder, Keith Farndale, wanted to slow down and enjoy a “semi-retirement.” To that end a new investor was brought in to take over control of Procept Associates Ltd.. As of January 1, 2015 the new controlling shareholder of Procept Associates is Vita Capital Inc., which will take over the management of the company.

Farndale will continue his involvement with the company as an occasional instructor and as Chair of the Management Advisory Board.

Clients likely won’t notice much difference in their dealings with Procept in the near future; however, there are some fresh ideas, additional trainers, new services, and other offerings that the new management team brings that will be announced over the next few months.

Carlo Barrettara, PresidentThe new President of Procept is Carlo Barrettara, a very successful entrepreneur from the Toronto area. He has extensive experience in automating business processes to improve efficiencies and he is an expert in online marketing and campaign management. The new management team also will be bringing to Procept solid client relationships in the financial services and IT industries, which will help the company better serve clients in those fields.

Vita Capital Inc. is part of a group of companies that bring interesting synergies to the table. One company in the group invests heavily in eLearning courses. While most of their e-courses are custom-developed for corporate clients, they have started to convert some of their materials into public e-courses available through their online learning portal. Procept plans on taking advantage of this service so that it can more efficiently serve overseas clients and smaller clients that don’t have enough students to make a classroom course feasible.

New clients, new offerings, and a new approach to servicing our core client base – things are looking bright for Procept Associates in 2015 and beyond!

PMI Lakeshore Symposium 2014

  • By: pcadmin on 01 Mar 2014

Darya Duma speaks at the PMI Lakeshore Symposium on March 1, 2014 on “Project Governance or is it Governance of Projects?

Abstract:
Most organizations have strong corporate governance, but often those governance policies and procedures do not apply to projects or at the very least prove to be a poor fit in matrix organizations. Project governance provides the link between the project manager and the executive management of the organization. All the project management processes in the world cannot help if your project does not have the right framework for executive involvement, decision-making and risk management. In this short talk, we will discuss the essential principles of governance for projects, programs and portfolios and how applying those principles can provide a path to project recovery.

As a member of ISO/TC258 on projects, programs and portfolios, Darya has shared thoughts on this topic with some of the leading minds in project management on the international stage. She will discuss the most recent views as proposed in international standards and how those principles translated to application in a recent case study.

To register visit http://www.pmi-lakeshore.org/symposium_2014/notice.htm

This year’s Symposium theme entitled “The Power of Diversity” focuses on communication and team building when working with a diverse workforce in a connected world for successful outcomes of projects.

“The Power of Diversity” Symposium will challenge your thinking, expand your knowledge, extend your network, and you’ll leave with new insights into methods, solutions and opportunities leading you to greater aspirations. This is also an excellent opportunity to acquire 7 PDUs.
