Business performance consulting with a focus on Cloud Business Services
Consulting for Cloud Business Services
Combining our solid experience in Shared Services and IT, with our broad understanding of Cloud Computing, plus our insights into Cloud Business Services, Navidus consultants help our clients to improve business performance.
Navidus will develop a business case setting out potential benefits for your organisation.
Based on a study of the extent of the use of existing Cloud Services in your organisation, and our methods to assess potential value across named Business Services. This benefits case will act as the briefing materials for the Executive Team as you consider your strategic options.
A Navidus Cloud Services benefits case is grounded in; our objective market surveys of current cloud solutions, our practical experience in operations management, and our knowledge of the risks and costs of transformation.
Once you have a clear idea of the potential value of Cloud Services to your organisation, your strategy needs to take account of your existing processes, suppliers, and solutions.
An integrated view of the interoperability of the complete Business Services landscape is your tool to manage risk and to ensure a common understanding of the transformation plan. Our methods clarify these points of interoperability.
The Services Strategy will be clearly supported by a outcomes-orientated delivery plan with an agreed time-line for target benefits. Our templates speed the development of a coherent, well understood plan.
The adoption of Cloud Business Services will usually be a series of short projects over a few years, as services are implemented in different business functions. Co-ordination is key to success.
The existing governance structure and processes of the organisation needs to be adapted to include Cloud Business Services governance ... with interfaces to the existing governance process including Finance, Budgeting, IT, strategy etc. Our methods accelerate this process and minimise disruption.
Risk and Compliance management processes also need to be amended to address the specifics of Cloud Business Services such as data management and data security. Our experience highlights the relevant risks from the start.
As Cloud Business Services are being implemented, most organisation will require support with Project Management, Change Management, and Process Design. This support will vary with time and the Services affected. Navidus have experienced delivery teams who can support this process.
We are committed to Business Outcomes Project Management techniques and are happy to discuss fee structures linked directly to business benefits delivered.
Great tools only deliver great results when they are used by engaged employees. All the evidence supports the fact that engaged employees deliver better business results. Therefore, an early indicator of the business benefits of Cloud, is an improvement in Employee Engagement.
We develop, deliver, and analyse employee engagement surveys tuned to the population most affected by cloud deployments. Before and after pictures give a powerful early picture of benefits delivered.
Our survey designs are based on state of the art thinking from experts such as Macey & Schnider.
