While 58% of executives in an Accenture Strategy survey reported that technology is already allowing them to achieve targets and capture value faster, many leaders don’t use their digital tools to full advantage. A mindset shift—gravitating toward purposeful experimentation and scenario testing—is necessary.
We’ve seen companies design combined organizations in half the time it used to take, leveraging a suite of analytics techniques. And the additional insight and flexibility these tools provide can be invaluable in an uncertain world.
People analytics tools allow for real-time, central management of a complex organization design and selection process, increasing speed to value while providing pinpoint accuracy.
In addition, the use of analytics enables insight-driven decisions at every major step of the organization design process, from a better understanding of costs to addressing organizational agility.
In our experience, companies that use M&A analytics technologies to their full advantage, designing a new organization to maximize transformation, give themselves a speed and accuracy advantage versus organizations that don’t.
