Below is our recent interview with Andrew Wiltshire, Director at Shibumi:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Shibumi is a SaaS Platform that helps the world’s leading organizations and their Advisory Firm Partners to successfully execute Strategic Transformation Programs.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: Shibumi was recently recognized in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Strategic Portfolio Management and continues to grow as more and more of the largest companies in the world recognize the importance of managing strategic transformation programs that can be critical to an organization’s longevity.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: Shibumi was founded in 2011 by a team of experienced technology executives who saw a gap in existing technologies for managing complex, strategic programs. We saw critical programs managed with spreadsheets and slide templates, burying program teams in low-value process work and hiding true priorities in complexity. We also saw project and portfolio management tools tracking milestones, schedule and budget, but without the flexibility needed to manage execution against true, enterprise-scale business goals – such as revenue, expenses, working capital and market share. So, our mission is to close that gap and empower businesses to simplify execution, reduce risk, maximize results, and reach their most strategic objectives.
Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months?
A: What are your plans? Shibumi continues to grow with an ever-increasing presence in the major markets of North America, Europe and Asia Pacific. Shibumi also continues to invest in our best-in-class Strategic Portfolio Management platform to ensure that we continue to help our clients and our Global Advisory Firm partners to deliver Transformation Excellence powered by Shibumi.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: Without a doubt the best thing about Shibumi is the people. We have a passionate group of people who support our customers every day to drive important business outcomes for their organizations. One of the most common complements we receive in our reviews provided by customers and partners is how much they appreciate working with our team and how they regard Shibumi as a partner in their success.
