People, Politics, Policy, Process and Technology. These are the five foundational elements of the problems that hold back any organization. Our approach, called 4P’s and a T, for short, is a method that identifies problems and where they affect others. The beauty of 4P’s and a T is its ability to pinpoint problems and complications that hinder the ability of projects to reach their maximum potential. Consider it as a reliably effective icebreaker for pinpointing problems that are complex or not yet fully identified; in order to identify a problem, first examine the elements that surround the problem. This approach is incredibly versatile; it is both vertically scalable and horizontally portable, allowing it to address any kind problem regardless of its location, size, or level of importance. We systematically work in order through 4P’s and a T, beginning with the People, Politics, and Policies. Then we move on to analyze the Process and Technology, which allows us to properly assess our partner’s needs in the context of their strategic vision.
Utilizing the 4P’s and a T approach is important because it aligns organizational objectives with the stakeholders’ agendas.
