Many organisations tend to adopt only a limited selection of best-practices, without having ever considered the need for taking a planned and integrated approach. This can result in a disjointed mishmash of techniques and templates that hinders more than it enables. VisionLed has years of experience in guiding organisation through the ‘adopt and adapt’ lifecycle that ensures you have an end-to-end methodology that is truly tailored to how you want to work.
Example best-practice frameworks include:
COBIT5® for Governance Risk and Compliance
DevOps for higher automation and faster delivery
PRINCE2® and PMP® for Project Management
MSP® for Programme Management
MoP for Portfolio Management
P3O® for the design, implementation and management of PMO’s
ITIL®- for IT Service Management
As a technology-agnostic company, VisionLed can guide you through the development of a business-aligned strategy that is truly unbiased and objective.
Our services within Strategy and Governance include:
• Development of a business-aligned IT strategy
• Design of the supporting IT governance processes and organisation
• Strategic assessment of your Service Portfolio
• Smart-sourcing and use of shared service centres
• Maturity assessments and qualitative benchmarking of Strategy, Design, Transition, Operations, Continual Service Improvement, people & culture, and business value
A Digital Strategy is not the same as an IT Strategy. The latter is more concerned with completing a defined implementation plan, such as application rationalisation, or virtualising the infrastructure.
Whilst a Digital Strategy is primarily focused upon connecting to more customers and deriving higher business-value from IT investments. For this reason, a Digital Transformation cannot begin in the IT Department. It must be vision-led from the top of the organisation and cascaded with a clear line of sight to ensure that all change initiatives, business and IT are aligned.
The true measure of success for a Digital Strategy is how much of a competitive advantage did we gain over the existing market? And, perhaps even better, did we create a brand new market of which we are now the leader?
Reengineering implies that you start with what you have now, whether that is good or not. Reimagining brings a sense of freedom, flexibility and creativity to connect with your customers in ways that have not been possible before. VisionLed can guide you through an end-to-end, customer-centric approach including: visioning workshop(s), benchmarking, data analysis, innovation, user experience (UX) design, automation, marketing, sales, delivery and operations.
Need help designing your target operating model? VisionLed has in-house expertise that can turn your vision into a holistic design including the Processes, Organisation, Technology and Information needed to ensure your vision becomes a reality.
Reduce the workload on your operational teams by allowing VisionLed to manage your entire change initiative. We can provide Programme/Project Manager(s), Change Manager, Specialist Resources and even PMO to ensure your change has the highest level of expertise and focus.
Short of an expert, or two? Need an extra pair of hands? VisionLed can provide you with the specialist resources you need, when you need them.
Business agility refers to the ability of an organisation to succeed in a rapidly changing environment, by providing the required culture and supporting practices. Business agility builds upon practices that are widely used in software development to improve efficiency and speed to market and innovation.
The benefits of enhanced agility include higher revenues, more satisfied customers and employees, improved operational efficiency and faster time-to-market.
COBIT5® is the leading international framework for the governance and management of enterprise IT. The COBIT5® framework is specifically designed to align IT Goals and processes with the Strategic Business Objectives to ensure that an IT department can be successfully audited for compliance, security and risk management.
RESILIA® is designed to support established IT control and business integration frameworks. It shows how these controls can be selected, deployed and best managed to enable individuals to understand how they can contribute to good cyber resilience using the organization’s existing processes and standards
ITIL® is the most widely accepted approach to IT service management in the world. ITIL® can help individuals and organizations use IT to realize business change, transformation and growth.
DevOps is a cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration, integration and automation in order to improve the flow of work between software developers and IT operations professionals. Improved workflows will result in an improved ability to design, develop, deploy and operate software and services faster.
A P3O model provides a decision enabling/delivery support structure for all change within an organization. This may be provided through a single permanent office which may exist under several different names, for example Portfolio Office, Centre of Excellence, Enterprise or Corporate Programme Office.
Portfolio Management helps organizations make decisions about implementing the right changes to business as usual via projects and programmes. Portfolio management is not concerned with the detailed management of these projects and programmes; rather, it approaches the management of change projects and programmes from a strategic viewpoint.
MSP® comprises a set of principles and processes for use when managing a programme. It is founded on best practice although it is not prescriptive. It is very flexible and designed to be adapted to meet the needs of local circumstances.
PRINCE2® (Projects In Controlled Environments) provides guidance that gives individuals and organizations the essentials of running a project. PRINCE2 is easy to learn and a flexible method that can be adapted to all types of project.
Helps you to implement successful change and bypass change resistance by co-creating change. Learn how innovative practices can dramatically improve the success of change programs. These practices combine ideas from the Agile, Lean Startup, change management, organizational development and psychology communities.
