About IMAP™

Our story and our people.

 

Designed by users, for users.

IMAP™ has constantly evolved from its foundation in international portfolio and project management, applying the knowledge and experience gained from working with its diverse client base and successfully adapting to advances in technology.

We started in 1997 as a consulting group, however, we quickly found that portfolio management consulting lacks lasting impact without a system behind it to give traction. In response, we developed the predecessors to our current Zume portfolio management system. Our vision was to provide our clients with a dynamic, visual system that provided greater understanding and control of the complexities of their current business so as to confidently prepare for future success.

 
 

Our approach

The way we do things.

We believe the more you know, the clearer the outcome becomes. Our goal is to help managers condense the vast flows of complex data and information into a deep understanding of their business. We seek to provide the tools that clarify uncertainty and provide insights into how the business is running and how strategy should respond effectively to an uncertain future.

We believe that careful preparation and consultation with management and staff results in an effective system adapted to current workflows and capable of providing significant efficiencies and better governance. On this solid foundation, the business can prepare for the future with confidence.
