Business transformations are inherently complex and fraught with uncertainty.

What is a Business Transformation initiative?

We define "business transformation" initiatives as having these characteristics:
  • Significant changes to the organization (e.g., roles, processes, organization structure, reporting relationships, technology, etc.)
  • A large number of stakeholders affected (many hundreds or thousands typically)
  • More than one organizational unit involved, and therefore multiple stakeholders driving/influencing the outcome of the initiative
  • Multiple interdependent sub-projects or work streams
  • Typically long duration (many months to more than a year) and therefore the need to deal with shifting goal posts due to a changing business environment during initiative life cycle
Successful business transformations require a well-defined governance structure, strong sense of urgency, active sponsorship from leaders, engagement across all organizational levels, alignment with the organization's existing systems and structures, and methods for sustaining changes long term.

It can be a challenge to get each of these elements right but, when they are all working well, your chances for business transformation success increase greatly.
