The Transformation Impacts series

Over 70% of transformation initiatives fail due to people issues. Managing talent and creating an agile workforce are essential in today’s economy.

Solid strategies, processes and technology are no longer enough. Getting the best from people at every level when there is constant change is the key to creating a sustainable competitive advantage.

Our second Transformation Impacts session focused on managing talent and change.

Our interactive session talked about the full impact of transformation on an organization’s culture along with addressing some of the following key questions:
  • How can you accelerate the pace and scale of change and make change stick?
  • How should we be addressing the cultural change that needs to take place to support a multi-generational workforce?
  • As a baby boomer or Gen X, what are some of the things I need to learn or change to manage Millennials?
  • What role can I play as a leader of change?

Transforming your business
Seven essentials for helping support functions deliver

We talk a lot with our clients about their business services, and many of them no longer want to focus on just one functional area. They want to know how they can get the most from all of the elements of their back office – crossing the functions of HR, IT, procurement, property and finance. Although the starting points for these discussions vary, our clients share common end goals – increased efficiency and consistency of process, significantly reduced cost, enhanced quality and the business agility required to support growth. The white paper discusses the key elements of business transformation – including vision and strategy, process and system standardization, and target operating models – and how PwC’s approach can help you.

Change – Finding the best fit approach
How the right change approach can help transform your organization

The truism that change is the only constant might need some revision itself. Amid today’s rush of globalization, economic complexity, and demographic and technological dynamics, change is more than constant. It’s frenetic. And the pace has business leaders jockeying to stay ahead of the momentum, adapt to the trends, and beat the competition; more than 80% of the CEOs we surveyed globally say they’ve changed their company’s strategy in recent years, and one third of them consider these changes fundamental. This publication discusses ways that your organization can avoid the pitfalls that change can bring how you can get the most out of your business strategies.
