  • Mapping process capability maturity
  • Assessing the capability/complexity gap
  • Measuring levels of trust
  • Changing the dynamics of a project using benefits realisation

Peter Duschinsky is a management consultant with over 30 years of experience of bringing best practice and new ways of working into the UK business and public sectors. After a career in BT, Peter joined a communications consultancy to run a national best practice experience-sharing group, before setting up The Imaginist Company (“Imagine it, structure it, make it happen”) to help public sector organisations and their suppliers adopt a sustainable model for e-procurement. This work led to his developing a new capability/complexity assessment methodology: INPACT (Integrated Process and Culture Transformation) to help his clients improve the level of success from their modernisation and change projects. He has set out the principles of his approach in his new book “The Change Equation”.
