Achieve business transformation quickly and efficiently with our accelerated implementation tools and processes.
Technological transformation won’t happen without effective tools, processes and governance which is why we’ve created our Consensus Framework. It’s a tried and tested transformational approach based on years of experience implementing major projects and organisational change programmes, and it ensures projects of any size and complexity are managed effectively to a successful conclusion.
The challenge of implementing a major business transformation project happens only occasionally in a business, so you probably won’t have the necessary skills in house to drive success. Without expert guidance, it’s all too easy to be held back by the same issues when rolling out new business systems. Our Consensus Framework provides a roadmap that brings your business transformation to life, reducing stress, sharing knowledge, managing risk as well as saving time and money.
A successful business transformation needs your whole company behind it, so our Consensus Framework brings together your technology and business teams, as well as your C-suite, to work towards common goals and sustainable cultural change. We know your project is much more than ‘just’ an IT exercise, so we make sure your technology and business teams understand the other’s objectives and actively take a role.
You’ll want your business transformation to be rapid, to keep pace with technology’s development. Our Consensus Framework provides a clear approach to deliver change as quickly as possible, tailored to you from our broad range of tried and tested tools and templates. We promote efficiency with clearly delineated roles and open, effective lines of communication.
Our expert business change teams deliver a framework that’s proven to make it simpler to deliver on time and on budget. Consensus Framework creates a comprehensive roadmap to embed sustainable business transformation by ensuring best practice every step of the way. And Consensus Framework is continually evolving, too, adapting to the solutions and businesses we work with to make sure you have the best possible experience.
Consensus Framework embraces a range of established project methodologies, including the Waterfall and Agile methodologies but Essentials is our most rapid approach, designed for businesses that are looking to adopt a largely standard system. It’s centred on pre-configured solutions with rapid iterations of development, allowing you to go live more quickly and cost-effectively.
At every stage of your business transformation — through Inception, Elaboration, Construction, Transition and Operation — our experienced project team will work alongside you, bringing expertise that understands both the technology and your business. Our consultants will blend seamlessly with your teams on all sides of the business to support you.
Our Consensus Framework is a mature and extensive resource containing everything we need to ensure not just the successful implementation of your technological solution, but also to embed sustainable business transformation services within your business. It contains everything from pre-defined strategy documents to templates, useful guides and process overviews. And it’s a living process, always pushing and innovating to keep you at the forefront of project implementation.
Our Consensus Framework business transformation methodology delivers a high level of certainty across a process that provides project governance, an effective solution and change management. This is supported by our Accelerators — out-of-the-box tools and processes that are time-saving shortcuts to implementation — covering areas such as DevOps and data migration.
As a Microsoft Partner, we’re always up-to-date with the latest technological developments, and incorporate this knowledge into Consensus Framework. This is vital, because the methodology we use forms the dashboard that Microsoft uses to determine whether a cloud-based project can go live.
The Team at Hitachi Solutions were really, really strong. They had been there and done it before.
