Business Transformation

Always-on business transformation is essential for surviving disruption. To stay ahead, companies must transform even when they’re already dominating their markets.

But 75% of business transformation programs fail, largely because most companies lack a disciplined approach.

We help clients beat these odds.

Most CEO’s consider business transformation to be a top priority. And they’re well aware of the high failure rates of business transformation programs. But despite this awareness, too many executives rely on anecdotal evidence to try to improve their odds of success.

Aurisys helps these leaders take a decidedly different approach—one that relies on empirical evidence of what really leads to a successful transformation. Most important, Aurisys analysis of hundreds of transformations shows that starting the transformation process preemptively—when all seems well—delivers greater long-term value than transforming reactively does. What’s more, it does so faster and more reliably.

But even companies that haven’t launched preemptive change efforts and have seen their performance slip can get back on track. Aurisys helps such companies execute the business transformations essential for combating strategic crises (including declining profitability and shrinking market share), initiate a business turnaround if their situation morphs into a profit crisis, and manage a restructuring if needed to turn insolvency into revitalization.

Our business transformation consultants work shoulder to shoulder with clients to help change their companies’ trajectories—no matter where they are on their transformation journeys.

Drivers of Transformation Success

To extract maximum value from their business transformation programs, company leaders must understand what drives transformation success—and what derails large-scale change. Explore our latest insights into the secrets of business transformation and learn how to boost the odds of delivering real impact.

The world is changing fast—and organizations must change to unlock their full potential. Yet research shows that most efforts to fundamentally change the trajectory of an organization fail. Aurisys’s broad suite of transformation offerings helps clients flip the odds to achieve extraordinary results for their organizations. Our transformation approaches are underpinned by proprietary tools and technologies to enable real, sustained change.

We offer clients organization-wide change interventions, with a core focus on the execution, capabilities, and growth needed to achieve sustainable performance improvement. Our proven approach has distilled the critical ingredients companies need to achieve escape velocity in a transformation, delivering results that are objectively and externally measurable.

We help organizations identify their potential for transformation through a proprietary and tailored execution assessment based on a fact-based analysis. We then guide our clients through a road-mapping process to develop specific initiatives to achieve sustainable performance objectives. Organizational-health improvements and capability-building activities are baked into these action plans to ensure that mind-sets shift—and changes stick. This transformation planning and implementation follows an agile model to ensure early momentum and realistic plans.

We also support the transformation by establishing a robust governance and infrastructure model that builds capabilities, drives action, and accelerates impact. This infrastructure is further enabled by a suite of proprietary tools and technologies to provide full transparency on the transformation’s progress.

Strategic Transformation

Using a comprehensive corporate-strategy diagnostic, we produce fact-based analyses to address the major value-creation levers. Throughout a strategic transformation journey, we emphasize growth and sustainable returns for long-term performance.

We help companies identify the big moves required to position a company to maximize and sustain shareholder-value creation by applying a rapid investor perspective on a client’s organization.

Change Management

Change is essential but far from easy. Roughly half of all change management projects—and 75% of large-scale transformations—fail to meet their objectives. Aurisys’s change management consulting services help organizations beat these daunting odds.

Business Turnaround

Public-company lifespans are shrinking. Our turnaround management consulting services help companies avoid an early exit by leading them through a business turnaround. If they ignore the warning signs, such as declining profitability or market share, the strategic crisis can morph into a profit crisis—that can force them to burn through cash reserves.

Only a business turnaround can help such a company stave off the next phase of decline: a liquidity crisis.

Zero-Based Budgeting

Chief Transformation Officers Matter More Than Ever

Change isn’t easy. In fact, most transformation programs don’t deliver the hoped-for results. Aurisys’s Office of the Chief Transformation Officer (CTO) helps companies beat the odds by putting the right individuals at the helm of their most ambitious change efforts. With a CTO in place, the rate of transformation success improves by 80%.

Failed transformations come with a high price tag—including shrinking profit margins, lost market share, and diminished competitive advantage. In an attempt to avoid these woes, organizations often designate a company executive in charge of transformation. But as with transformations themselves, many such transformation officers struggle to succeed.

Aurisys’s Office of the Chief Transformation Officer provides the resources companies need to tip the balance in their favor—by making sure their change leaders have the right skills and knowledge to succeed.
