Technical Writing and Study Leadership
Writing concisely is critical to effective communication. Major projects often require many sections, chapters and volumes to demonstrate alignment with study requirements. Being concise and consistent throughout reports eliminates confusion and ensures the reader makes good sense of what’s written. JVP ie has often been asked to consolidate the thinking of study teams (Later Development Plans, Strategic Plans, Feasibility and other project documents) while leading or facilitating study outcomes. Remember, “the pen is mightier than the sword” (Bulwer-Lytton) and “with great power comes great responsibility” (Uncle Ben – Spiderman).
The great golfer Arnold Palmer was once told that he was lucky. He replied “the more I practice, the luckier I get.” JVP ie has facilitated somewhere between 500 and 1,000 meetings, workshops and conferences over more than three decades, four continents and several industries. Of these, less than a handful were unsuccessful. You could say that it’s been luck….
Organisational Change Mgmt
Kotter conducted the initial research on organisational change. Many management consulting companies have since developed their own twist on this.

Most businesses consider their bricks and mortar as assets and their people as liabilities. Decades of applied research in business value improvement and knowledge sharing has led to deep insights into Intangible Assets – how to identify, classify, develop and most importantly, apply them to add business value. Using Sveiby’s Intangible Asset Monitor as the base, JVP ie adds complementary conceptual models and practical know-how to help you leverage your most valuable assets.
