transformation Consulting

“Longevity in this business is about being able to reinvent yourself or invent the future.”

— Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft Corporation

Today’s Businesses Are Pummeled by Complexity

Accelerating complexity is found in the internet of things, 5G, self-driving vehicles, government rules and mandates, global supply chains, a multi-lingual workforce, age demographics, instant worldwide communication and host of other impacts both known and unknown. These changes are bombarding all organizations regardless of size. And that’s only the stuff we know about today.

What’s The Response?

The hidden imperative skulking behind this complexity assault is the requirement to change just to keep up. It is no longer possible to hug the earth and hope that it will all pass overhead. Standing still is not an option. Your organization has to change; it has to transform. If it doesn’t it will be buried by those that do. Often, companies rely on transformation consulting groups to lead their organizational change.

We’ve all participated in transformation processes that failed. At the top of the list these days is ERP implementations. Before beginning, most companies look for a digital transformation consultant to facilitate the work of change management. Early in the transition comes the reality that the data won’t work as it currently exists. So, a lot of work goes into sanitizing the data. While that is going on, the transition consultants make customizations to match the business model.

What’s The Result?

One of the keys to effective transformation is people. The people of the organization have to operationalize any change that one wants to make. But, the workforce is changing, too. As an example, in the recent past many people worked for one company. They did the same thing, many in the same small town, for their entire career. Companies established pensions for those who stuck it out over the long haul. And, this was a lot of people.

Today? The average person will change jobs 12 times. Average tenure is 4 years. People move companies and locales multiple times over their careers.

This one variable makes the challenge of transformational change even more difficult.

Parallel with these activities, pilots are being conducted and training begins. The vendor meanwhile is making new revisions to fix bugs and add features making the old software and training increasingly obsolete. And, this is just one change that almost all product companies are trying to make. It’s that difficult!

How Can We Help?

So, what do you do? One important thing you can do is give everybody the same language for working together. That’s what we do. Let us show you how to reduce complexity in your increasingly complex world.
