Successfully executing high-impact transformation programs—digital transformations, mergers & acquisitions, enterprise and workforce transformations, new business strategies, shared services and much more—is vital to the long-term competitiveness of organizations.
Yet it remains the case that high percentages of such initiatives fail to fully realize their business case objectives. They go over schedule and over budget or may become derailed entirely.
One of the reasons is that organizations are rarely managing a single major program, but rather a portfolio of programs running concurrently as part of a sweeping transformation. This type of major transformation affects the organization across functions and markets, and from the C-suite to the shop floor. The interactions of the variables that drive success—the “levers,” as it were, that need to be monitored—often go into the billions, well beyond the ability of teams to manage with traditional approaches.
When it comes to navigating major transformation, the decisions of even the most experienced executives can be based on assumptions, hunches and intuition. Accenture Transformation GPS allows our experienced transformation teams to derive precisely targeted, actionable insights from actual data and sophisticated mathematical models. This data-driven approach helps senior leaders lower risk and accelerate results.
