Maximize the value of Transformation with an Enhanced Governance Capability

Digital Core Transformation

March 29, 2022

A Big Four Accounting Firm reported that 96% of organizations were embarking on some phase of enterprise transformation. 47% [less than half] executives say they can realize sustainable value from the enterprise transformation.

34% of executives say their organization have failed to achieve the value they anticipated from the previous transformation initiatives.

  • Failure to understand the complexity of the operating model
  • Inability to innovate
  • Missing the cultural connection
  • Failure to take a “business at first” approach to technology
  • Inability to execute

An Everest Group study revealed that approx. 73% of companies could not deliver business value from their digital transformation endeavors. Fatigue from continual change and lack of transformation governance attribute to these failures.

The need for Transformation Governance:

Need for Transformation Governance

Transformation Governance ensures early alignment between business, finance, and delivery leaders, creating a strong tie between the value case and transformation execution. It operates in a “target state/outcome” model [where the business looks at where it needs to invest for new outcomes versus what has worked historically]. It drives (rather than tracking) with the right governance and execution. Transformation governance brings impacted stakeholders on the change journey so that a well-executed transformation delivers the desired business outcomes.

The digital transformation governance model provides the necessary foundation for a successful transformation, bringing together all aspects from vision to value realization. It enables organizations to manage multiple program and project management initiatives towards one common goal.

The transformation governance model helps drive complex initiatives on operational structures and the organization’s strategy. It is a critical link between the executive vision and the organization’s work. Any organization transforming will have a pipeline of improvements, subdivided into actions, owners, and dollars at stake.
