Organisations are complex systems. Complexity arises from the services they provide, the structure of the organisation and from the outcomes from previous change initiatives. It can be very challenging to deliver sustained performance improvement and growth without a blueprint and operating model that appropriately reflect future vision, functionality, culture and purpose.
As organisations grow either organically or by acquisition, they tend to do more and make short term "additive decisions" becoming more and more complex - inefficiency is the natural outcome. As organisations shrink, when times are tight, they tend to cut back on everything (salami slice), causing gaps to appear, damaged operations and potential chaos - business performance cannot be sustained. To successfully deliver change, organisations need to be dedicated to developing a coherent design for the change. This must focus on a clear end-state vision that is developed and shared with stakeholders to create and cascade ownership.
CAPABILITIES AND BENEFITS
Transformation blueprints and operating models provide the backbone of change across businesses. At Hitachi Consulting UK, our goal is to effectively facilitate transformation in the way you work and ensure you meet your goals in a clear and structured way.
Design for the future
A transformation blueprint describes the desired future of the organisation. This includes outcomes, the case for change and implementation plans, within the context of vision, mission and needs of all stakeholders. Within the blueprint, the operating model details key elements of the design of the organisation in this future state, integrated together into a view of what the organisation will do, how it will do it, where and who will do it. This design sets out how businesses shift from current (as is) situation to the target (to be) state via a series of interim stages.
Well designed blueprints allow organisations to ‘redesign the aircraft in flight' and ‘socialises' complex organisational change and its impact in an accessible format. They stretch thinking and ambition and convert often vague strategies into practical change agenda and plans.
