How it is Delivered

We deliver the digital transformation programme based on three core principals; only do what is needed, achieve benefits quickly, and progress in a ‘planned and agile manner’. Through a 5-step process:

1. Initial Programme Governance & Delivery Plan

  • Governance is deployed to speed decision-making and enable programme control.

  • An initial programme framework is created for all stages of the transformation – planning, execution and iteration – to ensure timescales are clear, benefits are delivered, and the transformation occurs at pace.

2. Company Insight & Gap Analysis

  • Company analysis to create a strategic fact-base across all core business functions, determining the areas current ‘digital maturity status’ and contribution to performance. Opportunities are identified where digital improvement can assist business goals.
  • Additional analysis also highlights the organisation’s capability to undertake change.

3. Creation of Transformational Plan & Roadmap

  • The analysis informs the development of transformational vision, strategy and plan, with a laser-focused objective to improve business performance via digital and other means.
  • We work with the senior leadership team to develop the organisation’s vision and transformational strategy. With close working practices between the senior team and DWG.

  • Digital improvement opportunities and change capabilities are subjected to a cost-to-benefit, time to deliver, and strategic importance analysis, using proven change blueprints for core areas.

  • Identified opportunities are aggregated within a financial model, to inform on the level, benefits and ROI of the full transformational investment and any affordability adjustments needed. Opportunities are then prioritised.

  • A transformational roadmap is created, supported by the right KPIs.

4. Integrated Delivery & Governance

  • The transformational roadmap guides the transformation. With planning and change controlled and measured centrally to ensure all elements happen at the right time, and clear reporting informs all stakeholders of progress and success.
  • Delivery is conducted through agile sprints, the use of cross-functional working practices and organisational empowerment to deliver benefits quickly—growing success and momentum.
  • All supported by clear and meaningful internal communications to reduce fears and enable buy-in across the full organisation.

5. Measured, Iterated, Controlled & Communicated

  • For all stages and streams, critical success KPIs are used to measure success and the need for iteration. Integrating adaptability into the approach to ensure agility to any changing conditions and business goals.
