Business Transformation and Turnarounds

In rapidly changing markets companies need to respond quickly to shifts in demand, increased competitive pressures and challenging financial conditions. New technologies, more demanding consumers and new emerging markets require companies to transform. They need refocus their strategic direction, redefine their operating model, change structures and processes and engage their leaders and people in a new ways.

Companies in transformation typically seek to quickly raise revenues, simplify the organization, use capital more efficiently and reduce costs. Business transformation entails wide reaching strategically driven programs comprising of 'Quick Wins' to the bottom line to energize the organization and generate 'buy in' of employees. Larger scale medium/longer term benefits require dramatic rethinking of operating and business models to increase competitive advantage. Successful Business Transformations can achieve numerous benefits : Improved EBITDA, increased growth, better alignment of the organization to become more customer driven, a seamless customer experience across multiple channels ( Omni channel), new technologies and systems to simplify the organization and reduce costs, enterprise wide process simplification and improvement.

I have structured and managed numerous complex business transformation programs. I start by ensuring a robust business case and clear sponsorship from leaders. The board must be highly visible in leading key transformation programs. Paying “ lip service” to change results in failure. I provide strong program leadership and change management. I help you get to where you want to be faster than you thought possible. Working collaboratively at all levels of your organization we build alignment and commitment for change.

I ensure effective communication with all key stakeholders so that they understand what is needed. "Why are we doing this?". I build staff commitment by answering "What's in it for me?" and ensure that you have your 'best team' involved in the program. My Programs focus on 'Quick Wins' as well as longer-term improvements. My approach ensures a robust Program Management Office and effective and ongoing benefits tracking.
