When every decision is based upon the definition of a problem, people routinely rush to identify the problem so they can get on with what they think is the real work of solving it. An ill-conceived problem though, only leads to an ill-conceived solution — get it wrong and it is costly and disruptive.
Oakton thinks differently: instead of jumping in they step back and invest time and effort to improve its understanding of the problem clients are trying to solve. They focus on examining the problem from different perspectives to master what they believe is the most important step, clearly defining the problem in the first place!
Oakton is an Australian consulting and technology firm founded in 1988 with over 1100 staff in six locations including its Melbourne headquarters, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane and Perth and its Indian offices in Hyderabad. Its business is helping create tangible value by blending business insights and specialist technology solutions to give its clients a significant advantage in today’s rapidly changing world.
