As we have outlined, a successful transformation project begins with your strategic goals and a prioritization based on how important they are to your business. Once you have identified a certain business process or sub-process, you need to examine the status quo: What are your risks and weaknesses, and where do your optimization potentials lie? Defining these lets you derive your specific transformation tasks, and your initial focus must be on those measures which offer the greatest contribution to your success in achieving end-to-end processes.
Pursued correctly, this approach gives you a manageable project that can be realized in a medium-scale enterprise context. Your project plan should include a series of milestones, each of which already has a positive influence on your business success. This keeps you from trying to take on too many changes at once, and it boosts your team’s motivation and acceptance levels. Each step will make your business better.
