TOGAF® as a Powerful Tool to Kickstart Business Transformation
TOGAF® is a powerful tool to kickstart business transformation -- "12 weeks + 500K = twice the accuracy, half the risk."
Business transformation is a tricky beast. It requires many people to be bought in to a singular vision, and it requires even more people to be aligned to an often multi-year execution program throughout which personal and organization priorities will change. As a firm with considerable business architecture and transformation experience, Ernst & Young deploys multi-discplinary teams of functional and technical experts and uses a number of approaches, anchored on TOGAF®, to address these issues. This is necessary to get a handle on the complexity inherent to today's business environment so that stakeholders are aligned and remain actively engaged, past investments in both processes and systems can be maximized, and transformation programs are set up for success and can be driven with sustained momentum.
In this session Peter Haviland and Martin Keywood will take us through EY's Transformation Design approach; an approach that, within 12 weeks, can define a transformation vision, get executives on board, create a high level multi-domain architecture, broadly outline transformation alternatives and finally provide initial estimates of the necessary work packages to achieve transformation. They will also share case studies and metrics from the approach from financial services, oil & gas, and professional services sectors. The session should interest executives looking to increase buy-in amongst their peers, or professionals charged with stakeholder engagement & alignment. It will also show how specifically to use the TOGAF framework within this situation.
Business executives in charge of transformations, business leaders looking to start transformation, strategy or planning professionals seeking new ways to improve estimate accuracy, transformation professionals looking for different ways to engage stakeholders, architects looking for different ways to use architecture
