Workshops and Strategy Sessions

Novarica’s workshops and strategy sessions are more than just a presentation of our existing research. We work with clients to craft a custom agenda and conduct interactive, consultative sessions that leverage our experience as well as our research. Following each session, we provide a brief summary of key points and action items. For clients of our Retained Research and Advisory Services, we follow-up over the subsequent weeks and months to track progress and offer additional guidance if appropriate. Some of our typical workshops and strategy sessions include:

Strategy Review and/or Development

We provide an external review and validation of IT strategy, or help articulate strategy based on interactive discussions. Frequent topics include business/IT alignment and communication, major application portfolio review, organizational design, governance, priority projects.

Single-Issue Deep Dive

We present research on a specific topic, either strategic or tactical, followed by in-depth, interactive discussion. Recent examples have included: specific core systems areas like agent portal, billing, policy admin, commissions, etc.; business strategy issues, like online customer service strategy or mobile; IT-internal issues, like budget and spending priorities, business/IT communication, staffing strategy, and governance.

Executive Workshop

We present and discuss business and technology trends in your industry segment, designed for an executive or board-level audience. These sessions are designed to facilitate strategic discussions about impact of IT and intersection of business/IT strategy.
