The focus of our approach is pragmatism and speed, which we combine with a proven methodology that concentrates on the priority areas of the business. This combination allows us to rapidly identify urgent issues, design digital solutions to resolve the problems and rapidly deliver successful priority fixes.

  • Reducing customer churn and improving advocacy.

Resolving Impacted Working Practices
  • Reducing the impact of remote working policies on productivity, learning and employee wellbeing.

How it is Delivered

We deliver our service using these core principals; achieve solutions fast, progress in a ‘planned and agile manner’, do only what is needed, and keeping an eye on the future. Using a 5 stage process:

1. Rapid Resolution Analysis

  • Rapid analysis is conducted within days across the areas of the solution blueprint. From this, priority redress areas and candidates for digital solutions are identified.

2. Turnaround Plan & Delivery Roadmap

  • These priority solutions form the basis of the initial turnaround plan and delivery roadmap.

  • Using this basis, candidates are subject to a fast cost-benefit analysis to provide clarity on the degree of investment required. Recalibrating prioritisation as needed.

  • Timelines are applied to form the turnaround roadmap. Supported by critical success KPIs. Stages 1 & 2 usually happens in four weeks.

3. Delivery of Priority Fixes

  • DWG delivery expertise is deployed to execute the priority candidates. Using our experience fixes are successfully delivered while ensuring the ‘future state’ is not dramatically compromised.

  • Central governance and a ‘war room’ is deployed to de-risk activities, speed-up decision making and control the success of the delivery phase.

  • Delivery activities are conducted through ‘agile sprints’ and effective cross-functional working practices to drive performance improvements quickly.

4. Measured & Iterated

  • While the focus of the programme is about speed, critical-success KPIs are used to allow the measurement of success or identify the need for iteration. Baking adaptability into the overall approach.

  • This also provides critical insight to develop the long-term transformational plan once business turnaround happens.

5. Long-Term Digital Transformation Plan

  • As improvements are felt, and digital benefits are seen, work begins on creating a business plan with effective digital capabilities built in for the future.

  • DWG strategy expertise guides the organisation in the development of this longer-term digital transformation plan.
