Future Plan & Strategy with Technology

ESI were consulted to support on a failing IT implementation for a global organisation after the programme only achieved delivery of 80% of the desired functionality. The organisation were determined to achieve the remaining 20% within a business-as-usual environment, resulting in aggressive timelines and challenges with bandwidth.

Research & Analysis

ESI partnered with the business to select an interim CIO that specialised in IT turnaround and was delivery focused to sort through the technical aspects, as well as people governance and stakeholder landscape. This involved identifying a technical solution to achieve the desired functionality, to understand skills and capability gaps in the programme team, to create a realistic plan and to bring the stakeholder community on the journey.

Project Driven Results

Cost, time and quality objectives were achieved against a re-baselined plan through a blend of additional ESI consultants and the organisation’s existing team. ESI supported the business to build their capability to cover technical specialisms, workstream and programme project leads, business engagement and business readiness individuals and communication specialists. ESI also helped the business to shape transitional and business-as-usual IT and HR functions for on-going initiatives.
