Generating Technology Impact

Many organizations are failing to achieve the revolutionary impact or expected return on investment from their digital technology because of unsuccessful implementations as well as over-budget and delayed projects.

Solutions, however, do exist. By integrating process optimization into technology programs from the outset, enterprises gain organizational buy-in, are better able to manage change and technology customization, and can stay focused on the business impact. This principle leverages our Lean DigitalSM approach, which combines design-thinking principles with Lean approaches, digital technologies and analytics, and deep domain expertise.

We use our Smart Enterprise Processes (SEPSM) framework with core IT, Systems of EngagementTM, and Data-to-Action AnalyticsSM capabilities to create intelligent operations that span the key technology-implementation stages:

Advisory

  • Current-state assessment – a process and IT landscape review
  • System health check – analysis of existing systems, including a maturity assessment against industry-wide practices and best-in-class benchmarks
  • Gap analysis – reporting on gaps in existing processes and improvement opportunities with technology options to consider
  • Business-case build – developing a business case along with an ROI assessment and critical business performance metrics

Design

  • Future-state process design – a description of what the business needs to be
  • Technology, tools, or vendor selection support – assistance in choosing the right suite of suppliers and solutions
  • Process transformation – preparation of a roadmap showing the optimal way to achieve the desired future state through process integration, re-engineering, and change management
  • Return on investment assessment – defining the ROI to achieve from a technology implementation

Build

  • Requirement gathering – collecting the business requirements for the technology implementation to fulfill
  • System blueprint – creating a detailed blueprint of the new system at each stage of implementation
  • Data management – cleansing and enriching data for the implementation
  • Trade-off assessment – understanding the trade-offs to make between cost, time, improvement opportunities, and metrics during the implementation

Implement

  • System integration testing and user acceptance testing support service – developing and optimizing test cases, and verifying business functionality
  • Go-live support – during transition and production
  • Training and standard operating procedure (SOP) creation – producing SOPs for the new processes, technology integration, and end-user training
  • Project management – managing the end-to-end implementation process, project plan, and resource allocation

Sustain

  • ROI validation – validating the ROI post-implementation, and assessing key metrics and performance indicators
  • Change management – enabling a smooth transition
  • Continuous improvement framework – ensuring that processes and technology evolve with business needs
  • Knowledge management – assistance in training, development, and other knowledge-transfer initiatives
