What is the path to the top? How can it be reached faster and more efficient? Where are organizations on their operations maturity journey today? Findings of Accenture experts show that advancing operations maturity boosts efficiency and profitability. Just one level up makes an organization 5,8 percentage point more profitable and 18,8% more efficient. Experts also identified four levels of operations maturity: stable, efficient, predictive and future-ready.
What else has been discovered?
- Being future-ready brings even more advantages: On average, future-ready organizations we surveyed show a 2.8x boost in corporate profitability and 1.7x higher efficiency than those at other levels. Organizations in the stable and efficient levels that reached future-readiness by 2020 gained a 2.1x boost to operational efficiency and a 4.1x boost to profitability, compared to their peers that made more moderate maturity gains.
- Operations maturity can boost global profits: Our modeling analyses indicate that if all organizations around the world moved from the stable, efficient or predictive levels to become future-ready by 2020, this would equate to US$5.4T in added global profitability.
