Accelerate, to Realize Solutions
Never has Architecture been more critical than today. It’s the key to turning the uprooting effects of disruption into competitive advantage. But only if it can be lithe, highly responsive and focused.
We believe the role of Architecture is to build enterprise agility. Architecture is key to helping the business find creative ways to exploit technology, harness innovations, and produce something new, efficient and worthwhile – rapidly, flexibly, and reliably. Ask us how these services can help you.
Create and deliver value
Today’s complex multi-stakeholder/multi-factor/regulations-rich business environment challenges us to consider more factors than ever before in our decision making.
At Contextual Focus, we believe IT governance is an integral part of overall enterprise governance. IT governance should provide a holistic structure for aligning IT strategy with business strategy. We combine our insights and skills, your corporate culture, and best practice frameworks (COBIT, ITIL, COSO and CMMI), to help build, and phase-in IT governance programs. We’re proud to help shape and improve how our clients structure and manage their business.

Concepts & Tools
What is 'Contextual Focus', and why is it relevant?
One of the key psychological bases of creativity is ‘Contextual Focus’. It’s the human brain’s ability to focus or defocus attention - shifting our mode of thought between associative and analytic modes.
Creativity and innovation emerge from the shift between these two forms of thought.
New ideas, insights, and creative thinking germinate in a defocused, associative state, where many dimensions of a situation can be viewed. Shifting to a focused state, those ideas are refined to filter out the irrelevant and focus on the relevant.
At Contextual Focus Limited, we apply unique tools to inspire the ideation in associative modes of thought. We then harvest the innovation and creativity, and fuse with other techniques to focus on forging the transformation that accomplishes your goals.
