Business Optimization Readiness
discover your framework for profitable engineering operations

Take action to improve how your business operates

At Agile Frameworks, we think about digital transformation and change management as readiness. Identifying how to implement something new to change the status quo in managing and delivering top quality engineering services and efficient operations.

Though change can be overwhelming to implement, small steps make a dramatic difference towards gaining efficiencies for your business and profitability. The first step is having a plan, identifying value on what matters most to your business…and then putting it into motion.

Focus on key initiatives that will create positive change for your business and delight your clients.

  • Develop a set of performance goals to achieve your desired business outcomes.
  • Quantify the impact of inefficiencies, revenue growth opportunities and cost savings in your business processes.
  • Implement changes that will support more efficient, profitable engineering and increase team member and client satisfaction.

Phase One: Discovery

The discovery phase is understanding your firm’s organization structure and service offerings. Review your current business processes, procedures, critical systems, applications, and how they are connected.

Identify business processes that are inconsistent and inefficient across your organization and map to a new corporate process to gain traceable, verifiable, and complete data across workflows and resources.

Phase Two: Process Roadmap

The second phase involves mapping out your business processes against your process workflow. M&A activity can impact overall efficiency and data requirements as firms try to integrate their systems and processes. Address what can be re-engineered to allow for automated steps within a role.

Once you can identify where things are going wrong, you can start applying technology to solve for those problems. Many engineering services do that in reverse, acquiring technology and placing it within a business.

Phase Three: Verify & Implement

Then define use cases to model the process, and validate the technology and systems against the optimized processes and data requirements.

In this phase, finalize KPIs, data output requirements, and delivery methodology. Create a project plan including documentation, training, and support requirements to effectively execute the business changes.
