About us

We drive improved revenue, reduce risk and increase competitive advantage for companies through the enablement of the IT Business Partner Management function in an IT department and across the corporate functions. We offer advisory, interim, training and recruitment.

Formed in 2009, Baxter Thompson Associates has always specialised in Information Technology Services. We bring together a blend of experienced, interim managers and consultants who have delivered tangible results while working as IT Business Partners / Business Relationship Managers (BRM).

We typically help corporate companies on an European basis but are equally at home with smaller growing companies.

To establish, nurture and grow an IT Business Partner community in the UK that drives value for our clients, IT Business Partners and our associates.


Our Beliefs

We are focused on responding to the following four imperatives

IT'S A DYNAMIC INDUSTRY
We acknowledge that the IT industry still has a long way to go before it reaches maturity – due to new disruptive technology and new management methods constantly evolving the way technology adds value to a business.
STRONG RELATIONSHIPS ARE KEY
We recognise that – in order for IT functions to be taken seriously – the most important and overlooked asset that IT has (beyond Technology and Human capital) is the relationships it has with its partners; yet this remains an elusive commodity in many organisations.
DELIVERY THROUGH A MANAGEMENT FRAMEWORK
We recognise that the only way to deliver technology value to a business is through a tried and tested management framework – and a real understanding of business relationships.
EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE IS VITAL
We acknowledge that to transform the (business) relationship, from an ad-hoc one to strategic partner, requires more than simply tools and templates – it also demands personal development.
