Sustainable Transformation

DZ Consulting enjoys a Change Manager Specialist accreditation at CMI – Change Management Institute and is in process to achieve a PRINCE2 Project Management certification. Sustainable transformation is a combination of Project Management and Change Management.

Every transition aims to start from the current state and, through the change achieve the desired state.

To be successful and sustainable the transition from a “current” to a “desired” state will typically imply two levels: a technological and/or organizational level which focuses on tech-stack alignment, re-organization, change in the way the company is structured and a people level which focuses on optimal adoption of technological and organizational changes to obtain the best ROI in the investment. This last is often underestimated threatening the success of the change and/or eroding the return in the investment.

The following framework is used in implementing sustainable transformation in moving from a “current state” to a “desired state”.

Some examples of transformation:

migrating from a manual to an automated environment (eg the adoption of an RMS – Revenue Management System)

moving from a static to a dynamic pricing environment

moving from a siloed structure where Sales, Digital Marketing, Distribution and Revenue Management pursuit their own objectives to a fully integrated commercial structure with aligned KPI’s

upskilling staff to a more strategic approach to the business

moving to a more data-driven decision business approach

The process usually goes through four main stages

• assessing and analysing current state
• define desired state
• apply tailor-made solutions
• measuring successes
