Technology-driven transformation

We appreciate that transformation can be a significant and disruptive change across your energy business. You will want to return your business to peak operations as quickly as possible after a transformation project. We help you to do this, focusing on managing risk of disruption, nurturing user and business readiness, and putting targeted and effective training and comms plans in place.

For your transformation to succeed, you will want:

  • A quantified risk profile, with clear set of activities to mitigate or manage risk.
  • Structured, objective and inclusive readiness measurement and reporting.
  • Rapid user enablement that delivers lasting knowledge and capability.
  • Thorough and quick adoption
  • Our team will achieve these (and more) through:
  • Engaging and coaching your leadership to support the business change.
  • Encouraging user engagement, demystifying changes and clarifying what individuals need to do.
  • Defining the likely impact on business - including what is changing – and constructing a plan encompassing all key business activities and the resources required to deliver a successful ‘go-live’.
  • Planning a readiness governance structure, including objective and agreed metrics defining what ‘readiness’ looks like.
  • Enabling users through effective training programmes which include targeted and engaging content.
  • Encouraging adoption using robust and supportive management and sensible use of KPIs.
