We developed a detailed 16 week plan of work, with a set of deliverables that we believe met the needs

  • Deliver a detailed project charter with accelerated mobilisation / alignment of the full programme team
  • As-Is Analysis and To-Be requirements gathered across all in-scope OpCos
  • Identification of value opportunities and the development of a high-level blueprint for your the operating model
  • High-level change / capability impact assessment and data gap assessment

We were also able to realise multiple quick wins in order to deliver significant benefits

  • We created a common business taxonomy and single source of the truth for management information across the Group, including a highly rationalised set of core management reports
  • Deliver a shareholder value focused performance management framework to provide transparency of true business performance in line with the changing operating model (including aligned KPIs, charging/allocation rules and management reporting structures that are fully aligned across OpCos)
