Our Approach

Getting Digital Change right

Our story

The GC framework

Embarking on digital transformation is a pivotal moment for any organisation. It demands a clear vision, strategic focus, and engaged stakeholders. Our framework provides a streamlined route, emphasising stakeholder collaboration and transparent communication. By defining a robust stakeholder management and communication strategy from the outset, we pave the way for a harmonious transformation journey. This framework prioritises clarity, ensuring that every step is purposeful and well-informed. Not every company needs each step, that is why our framework is modular, allowing a pick and mix approach to building a program where we can offer the highest possible value.

1-Current State Assessment:
      • Rationale: Examining the existing digital landscape provides valuable insights into technology capabilities, employee skills, and processes, revealing potential areas for improvement. This understanding informs the necessity for a comprehensive program or smaller, targeted changes. Post program, ongoing monitoring and feedback will inform the future roadmap.
2-Define the Company Strategy:
      • Rationale: Clearly define the overall strategic objectives of the company, identifying key priorities that align with digital transformation goals.
3-Stakeholder Engagement and Communication Strategy:
      • Rationale: Engaging key stakeholders from the beginning ensures diverse perspectives are considered. A clear communication strategy manages expectations and keeps stakeholders informed.
4-Define the Digital Vision and True Ideal State:
      • Rationale: Envision an ideal digital future without constraints, encouraging innovative thinking and setting the direction for the transformation efforts.
5-Gap Analysis:
      • Rationale: Compare the current state with the ideal state to identify gaps. This step helps prioritise areas that need immediate attention and guides the requirements definition process.
6-Prioritise Identified Gaps:
      • Rationale: Rank the identified gaps based on benefits, costs, and time. This prioritisation ensures focused efforts on high-impact areas, optimising resource utilisation.
7-Define Requirements:
      • Rationale: Clearly articulate the requirements necessary to bridge the identified gaps, providing a detailed roadmap for the development phase.
8-Risk Assessment and Mitigation Planning:
      • Rationale: Identify potential risks and develop mitigation strategies. Proactive risk management ensures the project team is prepared for unexpected challenges.
9-Review Software Alternatives and Select a Solution:
      • Rationale: Evaluate available software solutions, focusing on options that align closely with the defined requirements. Choose a solution that minimises the need for extensive customization, ensuring efficiency.
10-Change Management Plan:
      • Rationale: Develop a comprehensive change management plan, including training programs and support mechanisms. Effectively managing organisational change ensures smooth adoption of new digital processes.
11-Set out the Program Timeline:
      • Rationale: Develop a detailed timeline outlining project milestones and deadlines. A structured timeline provides a clear roadmap for project execution, ensuring timely delivery.
12-Development Approach:
  • Rationale: Implement a robust development strategy encompassing coding, testing, and deployment phases. Define the development methodology (Agile, Waterfall, etc.) and establish collaboration channels between development teams, ensuring efficient communication and seamless workflow. This approach guarantees the systematic creation of high-quality digital products.
13-Continuous Monitoring and Improvement:
    • Rationale: Implement tools and processes for continuous monitoring of digital initiatives. Regular feedback collection and analysis facilitate ongoing optimisation, ensuring alignment with organisational goals in a constantly evolving digital landscape.
