Deliver transformation successfully through a people and value centered approach

Most organizations realize they should not execute major transformations as Big-Bang project but as programs that deliver discrete capabilities in smaller projects.

However, most complex projects and programs continue to fail at delivering and achieving the benefits they were meant to. Some of the most common reasons include:

  • lack of leadership or executive committment
  • unrealistic expectations of the organization's capability to change
  • missing blueprint for the future to steer against
  • half-hearted participation from the business

We use a people and change oriented, value driven approach is founded in a mix of strategy, architecture and best program management practice to manage risks and assure leaders that their programs deliver quality and achieve the planned business benefits.

Our Approach

Our approach evolves around four core areas:

People Oriented
by managing stakeholders and driving change throughout the organization
Value Driven
by cascading goals across departments and teams, creating initiatives to make the business use capabilities delivered by projects and ensuring teams achieve benefits.
Strategy and Architecture founded
by building on a solid and comprehensive business and IT arhictecture
Best Practice Based
combining multiple frameworks and proven tools.

    National E-Government Program

    Recognizing the strategic nature of transforming ministries to E-Government, an Enterprise Architecture approach was customized and applied to a range of ministries, starting from an understanding of each agency's business and political goals and priorities for entering into e-governmnet, to developing target architectures, e-government roadmaps, and kick-starting procurement and contrancting for implementation.

    The program proceeded, and today several ministries are providing digital government services to their citizens.

    A business case justifying harmonization was created, potential future ERP suites and architectures were evaluated, and a roadmap for transforming company rpocesses were delivered.

    This enabled the company to invest in an ERP transformation program, and to harmonize and solidify processes and IT primarily in Finance & Accounting.

    Government Agency / Organization Design

    E-Government Program

    A government in the MENA region (Middle East / North Africa) was looking to establish a national Information Society agency to advance the Information Technology literacy and facilitate development of a Knowledge Economy. As part of its overall strategy the agency wanted to establish an organization based on best practice world wide and covering all necessary functions to fullfil its mission of developing the nation into the Information Society.

    Analyzing leading Information Society agencies across the world a set of fundamental design principles and global best practices were defined, along with the necessary activities needed in such an organization. Activities including best practices were organized into a set of units that were each assigned a mandate, key activities, the unit's roles and their responsibilities, as well as Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to measure achievements.

    The organization design enabled the Agency to establish itself with members from 16 ministries, public agencies and private organizations, and to start advancing the nation as an information society.

    New Life & Pensions Insurance Firm

    Life & Pensions

    This local Life & Pensions company was changing from a traditional pensions firm into a Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) provider serving the administration of many Life & Pensions organizations. The company needed to transform from being an internal cost center to become a profitable business.

    An IT vision to help the organization make its strategy real was agreed with executive management, and the new BPO's organization was modeled with business managers and experts across the company. Then, partnering with the IT organization as well as external key suppliers including applications and infrastructure vendors, business intelligence consultants and management advisors, the project delivered a target architecture and roadmap that would create 'The best IT system in the Industry', attracting clients and improving the efficiency of work to become a commercially viable organization in three years.

    The organization embarked on a transformation program that would become the most prominent and feature program in the years to come, while the company grew to serve 150% more insurance clients with only 30% more employees despite a turbulent financial market.
