Projects are a key way to create value and benefits in your organization. In today’s business environment, you need to be able to manage with tighter budgets, shorter timelines, scarcity of resources, and rapidly changing technology. The business environment is dynamic with an accelerating rate of change. To remain competitive, you must embrace professional project management to consistently deliver business value.
TPG translates complex processes and communicates your business operations so they are easy to understand by all of your stakeholders. We listen and work closely with your team to gather functional requirements, helping you identify your needs, and then recommending solutions that deliver value to your business.

Business analysis requires a specialized personal skill set to work effectively with your staff to gather detailed information, understand the information collected and be able to clearly communicate the business factors affecting proposed projects and operational change.
Workflow Process Diagramming
Your projects require that you understand how things are currently being done – so you can define your starting point. Process analysis discovers what all the parts are doing and how they feed into the overall process. We interview project stakeholders and analyzes business processes to compile an understandable sequence of actions within each business process. These are conveyed graphically in process flow-charts to provide a clear visualization of work-flow. The process flows created provide a step-by-step breakdown of actions, showing inputs, outputs, and operations that take place during each action step.
Knowing how a process operates is essential to determine targets for process improvement by removing inefficiencies and making meaningful changes to work-flow.
Finding the Right Information Technology Solutions
TPG offers leading-edge experience in helping you assess your needs and navigate your search – the right technology that fits your operations and your budget, with minimal disruption.
Information technology is a tool that helps you do what you do better, faster, and more efficiently to measure cost, quality and performance. Too often technology is thought to be the magic fix, and large amounts of money and time are followed by disappointment and frustration. Choosing the “right” technology requires that you know your operational business processes – what you already do well, and what you need to do better – and finding the right technology to maximize your output.
We guide you to focus on essential questions, like – who do we serve, what do we do, how and why. Are we adding value, are we growing, and how will we measure success?
TPG helps you measure opportunities and assess risk, set priorities, focus energy and resources, strengthen operations, refine operational goals, and establish stakeholder agreement in response to changing environments.
We help you organize your ideas, create your roadmap, and then guide you through the changes that come with pursuing new things. We critically think through your goals to remove complexities and assess opportunities.

Change Management Consulting
From concept to execution, TPG will help you successfully guide you through the change process, leading your team to embrace new abilities and opportunities.
Successful change requires that your people adopt a new way of thinking and adopting new rules of business and technology. At a personal level, every change has a point of departure and a destination – and all of us must arrive at the destination together. Transforming change is very hard. However, with collaboration, persistence, and optimism, the fear and resistance you feel is gently overcome by the ownership and the confidence of something new and better.
Business Strategy and Model Development
We understand a business strategy is your plan to be unique and distinctive because of what you provide – a leader, able to ride above constant change, prepared with a plan of action for contingencies that may arise. Your business model is your plan on how you bring your strategies to life – how your company actually operates and produces value. It outlines who is your customer, what do they value, and how will you deliver it at a fair price?
As you confront programmatic changes in healthcare or within public education administration, TPG will help you define your strategy and model for growth and success.
