The approach used by UnlokQ is quite simple, and shamelessly stolen from the USAF in the 1950’s – The OODA loop. It is equally applicable one-time (round the outer loop) or a longer term partnership, with multiple loops – improving with every iteration.
Understand the current state as the starting point for your evolution.
Internally, this might be a journey through a litany of tactical decisions, or a solid foundation for change that should be developed as exemplars.
This internal view is affected by external circumstances – those outside of your direct control that will inform strategic choices – historic, current or future.
At this stage the ‘fit’ of the organisation can be seen against the backdrop of the environment.
Are systems as resilient, performant and secure as they need to be?
Do you have the requisite support from your suppliers?
Do you have the skills in the right places and quantity?
All at the right cost!
The next stage is to understand the goals of the business and then to define the strategy by which they can be achieved, and the roadmap for the change.
In line with the roadmap, address the structural changes, if any, that are required, and how they impact the current state. Plus any process and data changes and the required capabilities to support them. How these these capabilities need to be addressed by either people or technology.
The decisions will need to be underpinned by the funding available. Where funding is not yeta available UnlokQ can craft a business case to request investment or funding.
Decisions are evidence-based on analysis of trade-offs between perfection, functional capability and commercial factors according to your unique reality
Lastly, make the change.
Informed by the decisions made in the earlier stage define the measurement or success.
Recognising that it is highly likely that;
1. Phases of the roadmap will require iterative modification, as more change is introduced
2. The roadmap itself is subject to evolution
3. Business strategy may change
The whole process, and with any transformation, should be considered continual because of the above although thorough modelling of the enterprise will make subsequent change less onerous as the impact will be more easily quantifiable.
UnlokQ can be a stabilising entity removing supplier and political agendas that detract from your goal.
