Procept Associates: Enhancing Business Performance Metrics via Training & Consulting
Procept carries out training and management consulting largely around project and change management, IT service management, data management and governance, agile delivery, and DevOps. An innovator in the area of development and implementation of project, program, and portfolio management frameworks, the company helps organizations tweak, revise, and adjust their governance structures so that both traditional/waterfall and agile deliveries take place within a common framework. “A lot of our work revolves around helping companies or government bodies figure out how to blend these approaches into one framework,” says Aguanno.
The company has been offering IT service management training since 2005 and was the first training provider in North America to start offering ITIL v4 training at the start of 2019. With 14 years of experience delivering ITIL training to corporate and government clients, Procept is a pioneer in the field. Its IT Management Practice Lead, Sola Oduko, also runs Procept’s Nigerian franchise, which first introduced ITIL training and consulting to the country.
Procept has in-depth expertise in both traditional and agile approaches, with agile-related consulting and training accounting for about 30 percent of the company’s overall business.
The firm has a long and rich history of delivering professional training in Canada and around the world. It conducted the first Project Management Professional (PMP) preparation class in Canada and delivered the first course on agile project management offered by a Canadian university. Procept also has affiliations with higher education institutions, conducting classes through one US and nine Canadian universities. Procept’s instructors also conduct graduate classes in the Master of Engineering programs at several universities along with post-graduate professional development classes.
Having started its journey in Canada, Procept now has offices in the USA, Europe and the Middle East, as well as a franchised operation in Nigeria. Working in multiple geographies has exposed the company to diverse regulatory regimes and policy frameworks. Ever since 1965, Procept and its subsidiaries have trained more than one million people across 17,000 organizations in over 200 courses. Further, Procept has been making significant investments to automate some of its processes and build tools to work more effectively. With a zeal to help companies around the world to improve their performance, Procept demonstrates strong capabilities and a long, impressive track record.
