ITAP Global Consulting Group
In order to serve clients globally ITAP has developed an alliance of companies called the ITAP Global Consulting Group. To support clients, the ITAP Global Consulting Group offers:
- Global reach and delivery, and integrated, value-added expertise across the principal HRD / OD and cross-cultural management development agendas
- Access to an integrated international network of co-operative companies across the major economic centers of the world (a globally distributed delivery system)
The ITAP Global Consulting Group was developed to:
- Provide member companies with opportunities to broaden their local services into a genuinely international, global offering for their clients and for the development and internationalization of their staff
- Provide a platform for member companies to access and market the intellectual property (IP) and consultancy services of ITAP International and of the other Group member companies in support of their local consultancy practices and their local clients
- Develop economies of scale for all Group member companies in support of R&D related to tools, product and service offerings, in organization and administration, and with regard to avenues of professional development
- Facilitate members working with like-minded professionals seeking to improve cultural understanding in business and society throughout the world.
The ITAP Global Consulting Group was formerly called the ITAP Alliance.
The ITAP Affiliate companies are those companies who seek to access the ITAP network and who make a formal commitment to the obligations of the organization. Through legal agreement, Affiliates are closely aligned with ITAP International, are responsible for developing the ITAP network within their region, and often are the lead partner for a given geography / country.
Affiliate responsibilities include co-branding with ITAP and proactively marketing and developing client relationships. Affiliate consultants are trained to deliver the Intellectual Property (IP) of ITAP International, and are expected to bring clients to the network.
ITAP Affiliates meet strict quality standards and deep service capability criteria and provide quality services in the cross-cultural and human resources fields in their home countries. They also support projects globally as their expertise allows and they may be allowed to bring Intellectual Property to ITAP and other Alliance Affiliate and Associate companies.
This growing network provides broad client coverage in many regions of the world (see ITAP Executive Team for the list of Regional Leaders).
