We know that a true business transformation starts with changing how people perceive and integrate technology on a day-to-day basis. This has to also be complimented with a clear view on the ‘digital ecosphere’ around us to understand what trends we need to be a part of in order to lead.
Today we can reach more people and deliver superior services faster than ever before, thanks to new technologies and digital trends that are changing the way organisations do business. This ‘digital wave’ is moving at a rapid pace, encompassing all aspects of business and society. The challenge for leaders will be how to best leverage technologies and innovation to achieve an effective transformation of their business models and enhance customers’ experience.
What are the benefits?
Business Transformation is about making fundamental changes in how business is conducted in order to help cope with a shift in market environment. All around us, private and public organisations are creating innovations to make sure they are more connected with their customers, or boost their revenues by getting into untapped markets, or significantly cutting their costs to be more competitive.
Take an example from one of our clients, Colep, a leading contract manufacturing in Europe with operations all over the world. Colep is applying Lean Management techniques to improve its turn around times while reducing operating costs. Prior to this effort, internal analysis found that the company lack flexibility responding to demanding customers like Colgate and P&G, who partner with Colep to outsource part of its manufacturing operations. A comprehensive analysis of Colep operating model revealed a new way to approach the market was possible. By embracing a transformation program that involves new processes, new technologies and a more flexible organisational model, Colep is keeping itself ahead of the game.
Transformation can also happen in a portion of a business. For example in Dubai, the Dubai Water and Electricity Authority (DEWA), also our customer, has achieved a 100% smart-transformation of its services in less than a year after the launch of the Smart Initiative for Dubai to become the smartest city in the world and now provides all of its services online. These smart services have helped customers avoid the emission of 13,200 tons of carbon dioxide in 1 year alone, the equivalent of planting 66,055 trees in 124.6 football fields.
We partner with clients to achieve high-ambitious impact to its businesses and communities through the creation of a new blueprints that require a deep transformation, a shift from withIN.
