IPA Is Your Partner on the Journey to Improvement


Assess (Benchmark)

Improving your project system starts with benchmarking. We assess your competitive position in key metrics (cost, schedule, operability, and safety) and evaluate your organizational effectiveness to understand your competitive position.



From this system diagnosis, IPA builds a set of clear and specific recommendations for improvement. We work with you to establish targets for changes and improvements.



Using a workshop format, we help you build a collaborative action plan to implement the recommendations necessary to deliver improved business value.
