Transformation

Achieving your objectives to gain advantage requires experience and foresight. Make the best decisions to move your business forward with confidence.

Processes are at the heart of the business, so business transformation can only have visible and lasting value if effected at the process level. Organisations are faced with the challenge of remaining agile while ensuring continuous improvements in terms of solution offerings and service delivery. They need mechanisms to effectively monitor, manage and communicate their business processes to deal with their challenges. This makes business process redesign an ideal opportunity to review current internal controls embedded in the business processes, to ensure that these controls are optimised. This will lead to maximum benefit, for minimal investment. Business transformation processes lead to efficiency, as manual data entry is eliminated, and process cycle times reduced. Effectiveness is improved as exceptions are handled faster and better, and the organisation becomes agile, with the ability to adapt to change a key competitive advantage.

 

PwC offers you a single source of transformation service solutions throughout the business cycle.

Creating the flight plan

A foundation of understanding the landscape, making strategic choices and building capabilities enables an organisation to create a flight plan to take advantage of this. This flight plan is a strategic map that takes into account the business architecture, the operating model and the sequencing implementation to deliver the strategy. It aligns culture and leadership to the strategy and then enables the strategy to be turned into a measurable, value-adding flight plan to execute.

How we can help

  • Managing through a downturn (business turnaround)
  • Deal strategy, market entity and post-M&A synergy realisation
  • Cloud transformation strategy
  • Value extraction
  • Fit for growth
  • Tech strategy and business enablement
  • Strategies for a workforce of the future
  • BXT accelerators and economics

Strengthening the internal team

Once you’ve created the flight plan, you need to access the right capabilities and organise them around broad subject matter experts. This is done to provide independent reviews on progress being made on the flight plan to support large-scale business transformation, mergers and acquisitions, and large transformational technology changes. It enables the organisation to extract the maximum economic value for all its stakeholders.
