Yours is a business that needs to change the way your IT or BPO services work and perform. Your principal aim is to increase the value of these services to the business. You face changes in what your business expects and have a critical event that means you must act now:
Time and Cost
Service market prices have continually fallen; concerns about cost are forever with us. Now the needs to support the faster delivery of customer service improvement means that competing on time is just as important. That directly affects revenue and our ability to win in the market.
In the past, agreements ran their course, you renegotiated around a bit more for a bit less and carried on much as before. You have heard of the business experimenting with shadow operations that threaten to get out of hand and are already insecure. We need to implement elements of Digital Transformation, the competencies to do this are lacking.
These afflict some organisations, by no means all. Most services work well enough most of the time. Every now and again, there is a serious failure. It must not happen again. Customers suffer prolonged and repeated failure with unconvincing promises of improvement: Suppliers suffer governance indecision and the absence of customer obligations. You need to show you have the situation under control or you will face the wrath of the business.
CIOs need to ensure the basics of services are right and deliver the outcomes expected. We help you better serve the business by ensuring that your services perform as the business needs them to. Form, invigorate and resolve services to steal a march on your competitors. Deliver new capabilities that drive your business forward. Recover services that are failing and resolve disputes. In this way, we help you make your services and technology work for your business.
General Counsel, Solicitors and barristers need the support of current practitioners in forming and settling the case. We can quickly give an assessment of the operational situation, likely opportunities and vulnerability. We express the technical situation in terms that your legal team and the Judge understand, drawing out implications for business outcomes and delay that can be valued.
You thrive through building justifiable confidence in well-formed relationships founded on trust. We make it easier for businesses to work with their strategic partners throughout the service life-cycle. This results in lower cost, higher performance, improved alignment to your strategy and more effective engagement of your suppliers’ capabilities (whether internal or external).
Our clients are able to:
- Move faster, capturing benefit sooner
- Achieve more, making better choices
- Support intuition with evidence and compelling argument
- Concentrate on leading the business, knowing that all the necessary aspects of your programme are being managed coherently
- Keep stakeholders on side throughout delivery, giving them what they need to maintain justifiable confidence.
