CalebAcuity helps clients achieve outstanding business performance and a clear competitive edge by delivering practical solutions to real needs. We deliver complex and difficult business initiatives on time within stringent cost and performance criteria. Our strong business and technical backgrounds ensure that complex projects involving technology deliver their full potential. We offer this expertise in the following key business activities.
Planning & Strategy Formulation
- Review & align the company & organizational vision to objectives & goals.
- Define & plan corporate & departmental strategies.
- Ensure that the real work of the company is defined & reflected to support the company's aspirations.
The vision that inspired the beginning or re-shaping of an enterprise is very rarely delivered on time to full expectations and within budgetary confines. In some cases, the vision and intended results may not have been clearly expressed. Consequently, the stakeholders' aspirations and the objectives in the business plan may not be delivered, and your customers' experience of your products and services may be less than was originally intended. In competitive environments, failure to deliver crisp, market-led propositions may damage the enterprise and, in some cases, prove fatal.
In addition, the objectives and goals set for different parts of the organization may not support—or may even conflict with—the organization's objectives as a whole. The mismatch of work to aspiration that results invariably slows the project down, creates unnecessary and costly rework once the project is launched and generally obscures the line-of-sight the business has to its customers.
Our approach is to ensure that the real work of the company is defined and reflected in the way it is organised so that the results which it produces support the company's aspirations.

Organizations face challenges & opportunities that require changes of behavior and operation, with new definitions of success and performance. Understanding how the business has evolved, or how the operation will need to be managed is crucial. You cannot change or implement what you do not understand. Results however are wholly dependent upon successful adoption within the organization.
At Caleb Acuity we take a different approach to improving an organization's business processes. Our activities seek to make business processes more transparent, effective, efficient, and more capable of adapting to an ever-changing environment in real time. This approach integrates systems, people and processes providing a single point of truth that can be directly influenced and changed by the people undertaking the process on a 24/7/365 basis within a controlled environment.
We focus on solutions to problems that surpass customer requirements and create an environment where your business processes are treated as a golden asset.
One of the tools we use is Nimbus Control which is an enterprise business process solution that allows the capture, management and deployment of operational processes and supporting information across the web or via a mobile device. Learn More about Nimbus Control.

- Implementation of Portfolio Management methodology & tools.
- Review & re-balancing of existing portfolios against strategic objectives.
- Program & project recovery & audit.
When strategy and organizational direction has been established, the challenge is to establish and execute the programs and projects which will deliver that vision.

The ability to manage and execute a program portfolio which supports teams in successful execution and delivers real value back to the organization, without layers of unnecessary bureaucracy and overhead, is the only way to operate a program management office. This is a cornerstone of our expertise.
