Harvard Partners provides strategic IT consulting services.

What we believe in

Harvard Partners believes in IT organizations with a mission to add business value and/or reduce business risk. We have been fortunate to help build high-performance IT organizations where:

  • IT was a discipline focused on:
    • –understanding user needs
    • –delivering solutions
    • –reducing business risk or increasing business value
    • –creating business outcomes
  • IT was measurable, well-organized, and predictable.
  • IT decision-making and recommendations were fact-based, easily understood, and completely transparent.
  • Technology implementations were consistent and well-thought-out.
  • IT staff was confident, felt respected, and was inspired to use technology as a competitive advantage.
  • IT was actively contributing to the success of the business.

We bring these characteristics to our clients through our core values.

    Respect is earned.
  • Value diversity in opinion and approach and seek to harvest the best from everyone.
