OPERATING MODEL AND ORGANISATIONAL LEARNING

Develop clarity and competences to lead integrated business technology organisation.

YOUR PARTNER IN BUILDING THE WAY OF WORKING AND COMPETENCES

Companies that aspire to deliver business transformation strategies would benefit from creating a basic yet strategic, target operating model to better understand the people, process and system requirements across their key business areas.

A target operating model helps drive and steer an organisation to a new and optimised way of working. It offers a structured approach that supports a better understanding of your organisation and creates a methodology for change. Operating model functions as a bridge between the daily running of operations and the company’s strategic vision for growth and transformation.

There are benefits that can only be realised when the management of various technologies is truly integrated in the ways of working level across the organisation. This is called the Business Technology Operating Model. When implemented based on Business Technology Standard and concepted practices created by Sofigate, a new sustainable way of working is adapted twice as fast. It ensures that technology capabilities are a core element in the strategy execution and driving new business opportunities.

SHORTER TIME-TO-MARKET

Due to greater enterprise agility in the operating model, from minimum viable governance to demand-development-services flow, the launching of new businesses and products has a much shorter time-to-market.

GREATER INVESTMENT PERFORMANCE AND LONG-TERM COST EFFECTIVENESS

Through focusing investments and resources on priority areas and supporting them with tools, data, and insight, an organisation gains better investment performance with long-term cost effectiveness.
