Process Improvement

Project Rescue

Solution Design

From smaller-scale facilitation to rigorous process review/redesign, we have a proven record for identifying improved ways of doing business.

Many companies struggle with project delivery due to limited resources and experience. Lumina has seasoned professionals in most types of Oil & Gas projects who can step into projects and have an immediate positive impact.

Combining the rapidly changing world of applied technology in Oil & Gas with advances in Information Technology means the industry is continually looking at process improvements. Lumina has extensive experience in many aspects of the industry and we are often involved in leading-edge projects.

Information Systems Planning

Mergers & Acquisitions, Divestitures Support

Systems Review

We help our clients develop and implement strategic plans for their investments in information technology. In tying plans to corporate goals, Lumina considers business systems and processes, technology infrastructure, systems organization, outsourcing opportunities and funding levels.

Competitive forces are seeing many industry sectors undertake significant restructuring and rationalization. Hand-in-hand with this restructuring is an intensely challenging period of uncertainty and change. Lumina has actively participated in many mergers over the past 25 years that have impacted the Western Canadian Oil & Gas sector. Our clients value the independent perspective that we bring to the table in resolving issues, advising on decisions relating to organization structure and processes and rationalizing information technology.

Lumina reviews business systems at any stage (from development to production) to ensure that user requirements are being met and the client is receiving value for money from their system. Clients appreciate our management perspective in addressing technology issues, rather than confusing our clients with technical jargon.

Program Management

Project Management

Software Selection

Projects sometimes come in waves with challenging dependencies crossing them. Our senior consultants provide program management services overseeing and aligning multiple simultaneous projects.

We have a wide range of experience in modern systems development and implementation methodologies. Our approach emphasizes practical steps, client involvement/self-sufficiency, results-orientation and risk management. We are proud of our reputation for completing projects on time and within budget.

Lumina has extensive experience in helping clients identify, evaluate and select products and solutions for application software. Clients value our in-depth understanding of the local marketplace in helping to fast-track the decision-making process without sacrificing quality.

Interim Management

Many organizations benefit from our senior level information management expertise on a part-time basis. This involves working with senior management to provide overall direction for information management initiatives that support the organization's goals and objectives. These organizations find our services a cost-effective way to ensure their information technology investments are on track.
