Transforming the front and back office

Change isn’t easy. But the world is constantly shifting and change has become a requirement for organizations in order to survive and grow.

Reducing the operating cost base and simplifying processes are important goals for most businesses today. Taking advantage of shared services, outsourcing and technology to cut costs and improve services; engaging the right people; and creating consistent business services across support functions allows organizations to free up the frontline and focus on making better decisions to achieve sustainable, long-term growth and better profitability.

Sounds great, but how do you make it happen?

Take a step back and assess your organization from every dimension – starting with your operating model. Consider your operations – front-line business operations as well as support functions such as HR, IT, procurement, facilities and IT. As you go through, ask yourself:

  • Is our operating model the right one for our current strategy?
  • Are all components of our operations working to full capacity?
  • Are our processes standardized and streamlined?
  • Are we flexible enough to support future challenges and growth?
  • Does our back office model provide clarity, control and cost certainty?
  • Can we respond quickly to changes in the marketplace?
  • Do we have systems to measure and report on key performance metrics?
  • What do we need to change in order to succeed for the long-term?
