Now that we’ve discussed business transformation and business transformators, what is the key to a successful business transformation?

In this blog post, we’ll tell you everything that you need to know:

What are the Keys To Successful Business Transformation?

1. Teamwork

The first key is teamwork.

You need a team of different specialities to transform the business.

Why?

There are different people involved in the business from C-suite, operations and support roles.

When you transform the business, the transformation needs to work for all of these people.

Their views need to be included in design because they impact its implementation.

2. People

In our 7th blog post, we discussed the differences between digital-led or business-led transformation.

If you need a quick refresher, here’s the groups:

The other people involved in the transformation could include:

👏"The first key is teamwork. You need a team of different specialties to transform the business. Why? There are different people involved in the business from C-suite, operations, and support roles. When you transform the business, the transformation needs to work for all." 🤝 #Teamwork #BusinessTransformation

3. A transformation that includes everyone

 

For a successful business transformation, you need to create a plan that ‘works for everyone, not just some’.

This raises 3 big questions:

i) There’s a lot of people in the organisation, is it really impossible to create a design that considers so many people?

Yes –  but you need to be pragmatic, as the saying goes “too many chefs does spoil the broth”.

You have a Core Team which is a select number of people that represent the breath of the stakeholders, who will work on the programme.

They’re the voice of the different teams working on the project.

It’s easier to estimate the size of work, expected effort and duration and set expectations within the core team, programme and key stakeholders, with the Core team.

Simply get everyone to answer these questions:

Let’s see an example…

Example Stakeholder Roles and Responsibilities 👥

The image above represents the stakeholder group and their roles.

NB – theres images are also from our award winning multiple international bestseller book ‘The Business Transformation Playbook’. 

You can be as specific as possible and include their tasks and deadlines too, as long as everyone is represented across the different parts of the business.

Determine the roles and responsibilities of the stakeholders involved on the programme.

These are captured in the RACI Matrix for the Core Team Members – which stands for (R)esponsible, (A)ccountable, (C)onsulted, (I) nformed.

The RACI Matrix records the roles and responsibilities of the Core Team members.

Here’s an example from our Business Transformation Playbook®:

Example RACI (Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, Informed) Matrix ✅
Example RACI (Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, Informed) Matrix ✅

The Governance Model answers primarily the ‘WHO?’ question and aspect – Who are the stakeholders involved?

It also answers ‘WHAT?’ is their role, and the processes these stakeholders use to manage the work, control the scope and manage the risks.

The governance structure to manage decisions on both the Programme, and the Business Architecture, is based on an equally simple 3-tier model.

Here’s an example of the model in action:

The 3 Tier Governance Structure 🔐

The 3-tiers in the figure are divided between the following:

Think about the people in your organisation and use this 3-tier programme structure to consider every stakeholder involved.

👏 "A successful transformation is a big change in culture, business practices, and strategy, and even how work is being done. Hence, it's crucial that before transforming, leaders galvanize their workforce so that they all have the mindset to withstand it." 💡 #Leadership #ChangeManagement
