Planning service
How the planning service works
Using industry standard techniques we can review your current operating model against your stated strategy and objectives to assess the scale of change required.

Based upon an understanding of your current operating model we can define the transformation opportunities and benefits that adopting Cloud computing options or embracing digital technologies could bring to your organization.

We can review your business cases and provide feedback on whether the expected target state is likely to be achievable and to provide remediation recommendations to create a more sustainable business case.

We can outline the changes required to your business that will be necessary to successfully access the benefits of cloud solutions. New roles, responsibilities, skills, integration and any organisational change maybe required.

We will use a series of business architecture techniques to define the target state of your operations at a Service, Directorate or Organisational level.

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
How the setup or migration service works
We can help define the best way of sourcing the business and technology elements needed to deliver your change. This includes consideration of cloud and outsourced services.
We can design a governance process that spans the enterprise landscape, programme or project scope. The process will implement a business design authority activity that is both pragmatic and practical to ensure that the delivery of change follows the agreed path
The ICT service will need to evolve to work with and help manage cloud solutions being added to the technology landscape. We will help build a new operating model (TOM) for your ICT service.

We can review your programme, project or cloud migration at any stage of the lifecycle, whether you are using waterfall or an agile approach. We can test whether progress, approach or decision making is optimal and suggest adjustments that can be made to improve performance. We can provide facilitation and management services, chairing or mentoring to assist with the implementation of the identified improvements.
