G&A Management Consultants Ltd are problem solvers and can help you find new approaches to business. We are experienced in today's volatile and challenging business environment.
We use visual thinking and group facilitation within the discipline of Enterprise Architecture to help teams or individuals look afresh at how products and services are delivered, how information is used and managed, and how new markets can be reached on line. We undertake visual modeling of business process, information systems and knowledge capture with the aim of communicating better with all parties, providing greater flexibility and resilience.
Visual methods help in deep situational awareness and re-framing before tackling business problems. We analyze information systems problems first from a business rather than a technology viewpoint (our preferred approach is a thinking framework described here in Wikipedia). Our policy is to transfer skills to client staff where possible.
This independent consulting company was founded in Hong Kong in 1981 and has undertaken assignments in USA, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, France, Scandanavia, Ireland and, of course, Hong Kong. We combine deep, real-world business knowledge with the use of rigorous and adaptive methodologies.
G&A's principal consultant, Roy Grubb FBCS CITP, has broad management consulting experience of over 30 years, with assignments in Europe, USA, and Asia. He has used visual information-mapping techniques for all of that time.
