Ikigai Consulting

Focus. Courage. Resilience.

In an increasingly uncertain and turbulent business environment, having a compelling strategy is vital for success. Projects only add value when they are informed by and aligned to it. Without effective implementation or execution however, that strategy will render little or no value. This is precisely where we come in.

Approximately 60% of organizations today, face significant challenges in bridging the gaps between their business strategy and its implementation. Less than 56% of all projects on average, are successfully completed on time and within budget, due largely in part to ineffective planning and resource utilization, leadership, and communication.

We partner with astute and committed clients in overcoming their more difficult challenges by advising on, designing, and executing projects. Where they may be lacking leadership, focus, and momentum, we will work with you to get them back on track and aligned to your business goals. We have a passion for projects and take considerable joy in being able to deliver results and value to all of our clients.

 
 

History

The journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.

In Okinawa, Ikigai is thought of as the reason for getting up in the morning, being, or simply enjoying life. Rather than trying to do everything well, we do just a few things brilliantly. Our Ikigai resides in the passion that we have for projects, collaborating with and serving others, and in being able to add value to any major project or initiative.

Inspired by the bonsai tree, our brand seeks to convey harmony, order, sustainability, and balance – qualities reflected in our philosophy and consulting approach, relationships with clients and partners, and the wider environment in which we operate.

Established by divine directive in 2013, Ikigai Consulting is aligned to God's divine will, principles, and intent. We aim to be a representative model of integrity, quality, creativity, leadership, and excellence in our field, underpinned by a firm belief that project management has strategic relevance to today's organizations and business leaders.

 
 

Philosophy

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.

Our consulting approach was founded upon five core beliefs which serve to set us apart. We believe that;

  • God owns this firm. We therefore lay hold of and espouse the principles set forth in His Word and seek to bring honour and glory to Him, through our efforts and engagement with others.

  • Strategy is only as good as the execution behind it. We focus on effective project planning, design, and implementation, with the understanding that strategy and execution must be carefully aligned, thereby forming an integrated whole.

  • Context is critical to understanding the environments and challenges in which our clients and their projects exist. Nothing happens in isolation and this helps to inspire, inform, and shape our unique solutions.

  • Success is linked to meeting the standards and expectations of our clients, and not only the project's goals, requirements, and specifications.

  • Change must not simply happen. It must be focused, occur within the context of the project, and at a pace which exceeds that of our client's competitors.
