Something's got to give.

Find it and open up opportunity.

Abeo is Latin for change. In the business of government, everything changes, all the time. What seems to stay consistent is increasing demand and a longer to-do list with fewer resources.

So today more than ever, IM/IT, Corporate Services, and Programs must work in step with one another. When these functional disciplines synchronize their goals and processes, and speak a common language, streamlined collaboration is not just possible but also sustainable over the long term using BP&M ‘s ABEO – Activities for Business Enabling Outcomes framework.   


All about Abeo™

Abeo™ is BP&M’s business engagement framework—a model for coordinating functional areas in government departments and agencies. Abeo™ uses Lean and other best practices to establish effective long-term partner relationships between Programs, Corporate Services, and IM/IT.

To do this, we contextualize common and best practices, proven strategies, and standard industry frameworks to define both a multidisciplinary process model and a shared governance model that achieve the following:

  • Establish a common language that all parties understand and which aligns with Government of Canada policy frameworks.
  • Build a common understanding of mandate, strategies, deliverables, activities, and scope.
  • Align IM/IT investments with business needs and priorities.
    • In several cases, Government of Canada employees have implemented many of the Abeo™ elements – we assist them with the business integration in a public sector context which enables them to secure leadership endorsement.
  • Build business-oriented insight into technology planning, processes, and spending.
  • Establish terms of reference for investment planning, project and service delivery, and performance review.
  • Formalize how partners will work together.
