"TPI has been instrumental in helping the rebuilding activities of
the IT team. The TPI consultant has been
a part of the IT Senior Management IT team and specifically been responsible for
bringing together the various strategic planning and financial control
activities inside IT.
"TPI’s strategic approach to the IT organization has given substance
to the many activities underway to improve the performance of IT. As an example they have championed the
creation of an IT Project Office. This
has been very successful and has been welcomed by the whole company as the
corporate approach for project management.
"At all times TPI has proactively worked to improve the quality of IT
services. They have been both a senior
resource to me and my management team.
Their experience, quietly confident manner has ensured their acceptance

"Tamworth Partners Inc. collaborated with senior management and
Project Management Office to establish and execute the critical Risk Management
service in respect of a significant customer information system

senior executive with a limited IT background, I wanted independent expertise
that could help me make critical decisions concerning a major IT project that
had gone wrong. I asked TPI to assess
the project and provide me with recommendations on what I needed to do to ensure
the project got back on track and how to effectively govern the project to make
sure a similar situation didn't reoccur.
TPI did exactly what I had hoped. They worked effectively with both
senior management and project team members to uncover issues and practical
solutions. In the end they documented and reported their findings in what
proved to be a very constructive exercise that was valued by all."

"Arriving fresh into a rapid change engineering environment, I needed
help not only to put discipline and structure about how we implemented change,
but also help to adapt the culture to value of a more controlled process. TPI provided the catalyst, the knowledge base
and the approach to ensure success. In
particular, Stephen Thompson quickly assessed the existing process, and the
skills and perspectives of the people involved.
Then he created a program that focused us on the right results for our
business. Finally, recognizing the fast
moving (and time starved) pace of business, he weaved the project into the time
allowed - and kept us all engaged in making sure we implemented a sustainable
long term solution."
