ASSIST Transformation Solution
A new business solution for strategy execution and enterprise agility
Transformation is a challenge
As you know, organisations are a complex mixture of strategy, metrics, plans, culture, people, technology, risk, change, physical assets, and more - and it's why achieving transformation is a such a challenge.
ASSIST® is a solution which helps meet the transformation challenge. It connects business strategy, operating models, and project portfolios into a single management model. It is is based on 25 years of transformation consulting experience, and the solution now includes a new online environment which directly supports the ASSIST® approach.
Linking strategy, design, change, and performance
It provides the structure needed to maintain relationships between strategy, design, change, and performance management, together with an iterative approach for managing major changes and continuous improvements.
An agile framework
Based on an agile framework, refined over 25 years from extensive experience acquired in international transformation programme delivery, ASSIST® is both an approach for business and digital transformations, and now also an enabling online platform.
It has been designed as a solution for managers who are leading and supporting change across their business. It enables the design and implementation of highly integrated, target operating models which are agile and incorporate each dimension needed for successful transformation.
Connecting strategy and delivery
It provides a systematic way of relating strategic objectives to the managed delivery of prioritised improvements. Where improvements require more detailed business process, organisational, or system design, these can easily be designed within the ASSIST® platform to ensure a clear alignment with business strategy.
Supporting stakeholder collaboration
Advanced on-line collaboration features enable multiple stakeholders to engage and participate in both design and implementation.
ASSIST® is an agile way to manage enterprise transformation and improvements, iterating between strategic vision and implementation to deliver maximum value in the shortest possible time.
