How “small automation” can jump start digital transformation  to deliver quick wins

In this episode we discuss how small automation can be used to deliver 'quick wins' as organizations are looking for ways to create time in their schedule to focus on more extraordinary demands. Organizations don’t have to start from scratch – they can now leverage existing automations through a third party library that can be scaled for a wide variety of purposes across organizations in Finance, IT, Treasury, HR, Tax and other functions.

Our approach: Launching and scaling digital transformation programs

Launch your automation program

  • Digital Academies - PwC’s Virtual Digital Academies provide demonstrations and “hands-on” exercises that guide participants through the latest tools for data analytics, visualization and automation. Relevant use case examples help teams discover new ways to solve complex data processing needs. We configure the  academy to fit your organization's specific needs.

  • Opportunity Assessment and Intake - Building on the momentum post the initial Digital Academy, we work with organizations to develop model building workshops and  sprints that align with the launch of an automation program and solve specific challenges you’re facing today.  We help your teams select pilot use cases and jumpstart the automation model build phase.

  • Pilot Execution of Automation & Analytic Models -  We work hand-in-hand with your teams to automate processes and build data automation models.
  • Leadership strategy workshops - We showcase automated processes and learnings identified in the pilot phase and brainstorm the next list of target use cases and opportunity areas.

  • Citizen Automation Sprints - We maintain the momentum of your automation sprints with ongoing “flexible support” that is determined by your teams as new automation ideas emerge and your teams embark on more complex models. We  continue to assist your teams with rapid development and deployment.

Accelerate and scale your automation Journey

  • Accelerated builds - We have advanced technical resources as part of our low cost onshore & offshore teams that can be leveraged to facilitate rapid development and deployment of the high impact models for your function including addressing use cases that are highly complex and would need dedicated support and technical SMEs

  • Accelerated learning - Advanced training is offered through PwC’s Masters Academy in Automation and Robotics. This training can be customized based on where the needs arise and supplemented with ongoing “flexible support” that is determined by your teams as new automation ideas emerge and your teams embark on more complex models. 

  • Governance Framework - Governance playbook with guidelines, best practices and standards in workflow development to support creation of assets that are reviewable and auditable.

  • Functional Expansion - Standard and masters digital academies for additional territories and departments as well as ongoing “flexible support” that is determined by newly trained departments as new automation ideas emerge and your  teams embark on more complex models.

Enterprise Expansion
