Managing transformation successfully is a competitive advantage and we can help clients to navigate the challenges of such endeavours. Deep financial sector knowledge and practical experience from the initial idea conception through to the implementation are critical. Our end to end view combined with proven methodologies is designed to accelerate delivery of transformational change programs and improve business performance
Transformation is a long-term endeavour involving substantial upheaval. We analyse a bank’s preparedness for change and identify areas that need to be addressed before transformation can start. This not only takes in the business and operating environment, but also looks at the business case. We examine the risks and challenges and draw up a roadmap with checkpoints for the journey.
Transformation demands careful management. We use our experience of more than 40 successful core banking transformations to guide clients through the process, advising on communications, staff training and deployment, always with an eye to maximising buy-in from all stakeholders. Our frameworks then ensure outcomes are monitored and controlled to ensure that the change sticks.
Banks are experts at running their businesses; we are experts in project delivery and project governance. We focus on the latter so our clients can concentrate on what they do best. We can run a project in its entirety, managing interdependencies, timings and budgets to optimise resources and outcomes for everyone involved. We can also assist in a client-led change programme providing support in designated areas.
With any project comes risk and we are experts in project risk management. We undertake independent assessments on all change and implementation projects, producing an initial report that flags up key risks and assesses operational and organisational readiness. Where appropriate, we offer mitigation advice.
Our background in technology and business strategy means we straddle both camps and instinctively understand both. We talk to all parties in language they understand and act as a go-between, ensuring that the needs of the business are understood and delivered by IT.
After more than 40 successful system implementations on four continents, we have accumulated an unparalleled body of experience and knowledge that enables us to deliver programmes efficiently and in line with our client’s needs.
