IT STRATEGY AND OPERATING MODEL DESIGN

The difference we make

We work with IT leaders and their teams to tackle their strategic challenges and exploit the opportunities that new technologies and ways of working present. But we don't just stop there; we also define, design and deliver the IT strategy and operating model. We know that a 'good' IT strategy must support the business ambition, be economically viable and – through the IT operating model – identify the right mix of people, processes and technology to achieve that ambition.

PA opinion

  • Agile - a chemical romance?A recent report stated that higher productivity and team morale are in the top five benefits of Agile ways of working. What could it be about Agile working that has that effect? Could it be chemistry? We've checked out the connection between some of the body's 'happy' chemicals – and one 'unhappy' one – and Agile working techniques. It's clear those techniques could make any organisation more successful. 05/07/2017
  • How Agile can make the difference in a changing worldThe benefits of adopting Agile are clear, with more and more organisations adopting Agile at scale. Forbes and the Harvard Business Review, amongst others, recognise Agile as critical to helping organisations respond to change. So it's time to think – how can Agile make a difference to you? 28/06/2017
  • Agility is essential for organisational survivalTechnological changes will disrupt organisations in ways we can't begin to imagine. Organisations that are agile will adapt, survive and thrive. But what does it mean for an organisation to be 'Agile'? 23/06/2017
  • What's new in SAFe® 4.5?If you've already adopted SAFe®, check out SAFe® 4.5 and identify the improvements you'll embrace. Or maybe you've been put off of adopting SAFe® in the past? Take a few minutes and look at the configurations to see how they can bring agility at scale to your organisation. It could turn out to be the best time investment you make this week. 23/06/2017
  • The key to innovation? Get things wrong in stagesInnovation is critical if you want to compete successfully. And stimulating ideas, developing concepts and testing them in the market will create at least as much failure as success. But many organisations still punish failure – either directly or indirectly – by reallocating resources or reducing the reward for those involved. So what's the best approach to take? 10/05/2017
  • Single vendor contracts are so 90s! So what's next?The balance of power has shifted away from single vendors to a multi-supplier arrangement that offers the client organisation increased control over project direction and the ability to incorporate their own changing priorities. 18/11/2016
