About Elyon

At Elyon Strategies, we help future-proof public sector organizations and private companies by combining the power of AI with industry expertise to solve real business problems. Our strategic advisory services bridge the gap between the seemingly overwhelming business strategies and actionable project portfolios, resulting in real change, and bringing hope to our client executives.

Our Core Competencies

We’re here to lead you through complex modernization efforts, business transformation, and implementation of the latest technological advances in business management. We have the experience to execute transformation projects from inception and planning through implementation and knowledge transfer. You can count on the Elyon Strategies team to provide unmatched expertise in these six core competencies:

Leading clients through the steps required to achieve mature business practices related to their people, programs, process, budget, finance, and systems.
Providing clients with strategic advisory support and assistance with all stages of the transformational efforts.
Advising clients on best practice modernization approaches from other state agencies, as well as private sector clients.
Developing clear, actionable strategies to address change in the areas of organizational planning, program evaluation, business process re-engineering, communication, workforce transition, information technology, financial administration, and training.
Creating and implementing frameworks, tools, and approaches to facilitate the review, prioritization, and selection of transformation projects/activities.
Discovering and documenting existing business programs and processes, providing program improvement recommendations, and developing revised or new processes to be incorporated into modern, integrated solutions.
Our Approach to Transformation Lifecycle Service Delivery

Elyon brings a high-performance team with an architecture, engineering, and modeling mentality. Bringing a holistic and risk-centric view of lifecycle service delivery, our team will work from the following guiding principles to ensure that the vision and strategic drivers are realized:


Ensure that the project consists of activities and methods that clearly align with the project goals and values, and that your organization is capable of employing them.


Organize work activities in an adaptable structure to respond as the landscape and organization changes through the lifecycle of the project.


Ensure that the project will only utilize resources that the organization is capable of allocating. Furthermore, the project activities will leverage available information and artifacts.


The project will use and extend the enterprise transformation model, including applicable blueprints so that enterprise information and outputs can be consistently applied throughout the project lifecycle and beyond.


The project will coordinate activities across departments, stakeholders, roles, and perspectives, as applicable.


The project will identify value produced by the project that the organization can quantify.
