For an organisation to perform at its best – to be profitable, serve its customers, undertake a successful transaction or expand – a clear strategy must be at its core.
But equally important to its success is a robust and practical operational model to support and execute the chosen direction of the business.
Grant Thornton works with clients to understand and test their operating model to ensure they reflect and enhance profitable business and growth strategies. An operating model includes:
- how you interact with your customers and deliver the intended customer experience
- the processes to support the delivery of products and services and any enablers
- the roles of the people you need to support this organisational structure
- technology to enable your business.
Where performance can be improved and cost efficiencies gained, we help develop and implement new structures, models and plans to reach these strategic goals.
We also help clients respond swiftly to market changes, identify growth opportunities, minimise costs and help business leaders find opportunities for performance improvements focused on growth and an improved profit position.
The execution of your strategic plan is as important to an organisation’s success as the development of it. Our team helps shape and implement operating models that are key to sustainable success. It’s how you structure your organisation – your people, capability and processes – to deliver on the intended – even changed – customer experience, products and services.
Delivering on strategy inevitably requires changes to be made to the operating model – and such change can be highly disruptive if not managed well.
We support leadership teams, in both public and private sectors, to improve operational effectiveness and efficiency to deliver change management programs with minimised disruption and optimised results.
Our expertise includes:
- operating model alignment or redesign
- business process improvement
- business performance and measurement
- working capital management.
Understanding your customers or clients is fundamental to growing your business.
With extensive experience across a range of sectors, we help identify your targets, what solutions best meet their needs and how to drive loyalty and business growth.
We also support in assisting you to understand the current experience, through the eyes of your customer, by better mining your data. Through this a targeted improvement program can be developed to improve the customer experience, improving customer retention and reducing churn.
- customer risk assessment
- customer journey mapping and experience
- research and analytics.
