True transformation does not happen overnight and neither should it. We are able to cut through the buzzword and show how incremental improvements to processes and programmes will empower your people; putting all the pieces in place, allowing you to fail fast and early but win big, future proofing your transformation project from the beginning!
Digital Transformation is a hugely overused term in the tech industry.
It’s been used to describe a huge variety of projects, with 80% of CIOs feeling under pressure to deliver ‘transformation’.
Having a common definition across the organisation is more important than ever.
Transformation is a fundamental change in something.
It is not something done faster or smarter but completely and utterly differently.
For a business, this all comes down to processes. If you wish to use technology, to do what you do today, but faster – then you are not looking to transform and that is absolutely fine.
Paramount to any successful project is clearly defined goals and outcomes, making sure the entire organisation understands the journey, the ambition and what is required to get there, whether it’s transformation or just getting more efficient, spelling this out early is key.
From here, you can work backwards from your desired ‘target state’ to where you are today.
Map out your current processes, stakeholders, suppliers and technology. Only then can you identify what needs to change to reach your desired state.
You can then work incrementally to deliver this change in stages, meaning value is realised earlier and stakeholders see the benefits of the project.
Mitigate Risk By Having A Future Proof Strategy
Transformation is achieved through a mindset of Continuous Improvement across the organisation.
Without making changes and daring to innovate, organisations in any sector can get left behind.
Risk will always arise when any changed is proposed and be prevalent within a transformation project, however we have discovered that by taking a modular approach an organisation can actually keep risk to the bare minimum yet maximise reward whilst continuously improving their IT services.
