Advisory services

To progress, your company has to implement projects. Good ideas don’t garner value until they’re seen through to completion. Whether you want to increase profitability, reduce costs or improve your efficiency, projects are the only way you can evolve from your current situation to your future one.

Effective project execution will help your company meet its objectives. Do you find yourself asking these questions:

  • How can we set up a project office?
  • How can we define our strategy and establish governance?
  • How can we manage a portfolio of projects?

Okazy can help

Training

Don’t settle for being a professional with experience—make a name for yourself as an expert.

If you’re finding the recruitment process increasingly complicated, you’re not alone. Companies and head-hunters alike are facing the same challenge. What to do? How can you find the right candidates for your projects? How can you find a job in a company that suits your aspirations? Okazy specializes in recruitment. We help companies meet their staffing needs so that they can roll out their projects. You can count on our expertise and network of contacts.

But this surely does not mean that we should be bad parents... ... read more

The lifelong process of knowledge!

Updating your knowledge and skills is an endless, lifelong process. In a world moving at a rapid pace, keeping up is a challenge in itself.
