Target Operating Model
Understand and be prepared for the Future
Do you question which costs and investments create or enable a point of differentiation?
Do you want to explore a new vision for finance or want to bring your organization closer to the best in class?
Do you want to transform your value proposition into real tangible and actionable results?
Traditional finance models might not be flexible enough to keep pace with the accelerating speed of changes in the market. Finance leaders face increasing pressure to transition to an operating model that is more data-driven, adaptable, and fluid.
An adaptive data-driven model requires out-of-the-box thinking, pragmatism, and broad transformation of the culture, people, processes, and supporting systems with a sound proven method to identify and tackle issues and improvement areas early.
“We know where we are and where we want to be. The challenge is how to get there, what do we priority first? What capability is important and how do we align the organization?”

Service Delivery Model Strategies
Optimize the Finance function
Do you feel stakeholders are not getting the most value from the organization?
Are you seeking to reduce costs, complexity, and improve the efficiency of the Finance function?
Do you have pressure to release the money, resources, and capability?
Today's Service Delivery Models are no longer just about cost-cutting. They now look to reduce internal organization complexity and be the foundation for redesign towards being more agile and repeatedly create value beyond cost reduction.
Agile Shared Services delivery is only achieved with the right Service Delivery Model (SDM) Strategy, considering cross functions, leveraging digital automation to run the end-to-end processes, location strategies, and focus on strong governance and collaboration.
The new SMD also entails the infrastructure set-up to support a larger number of processes and services across functions within the company to achieve economies of scale and better customer value.
Rarely have Business continuity plans been tested to the extent that they are now with COVID-19. Employees left without access to a conducive workspace. Broadband connectivity, security, and infrastructure problems to cope with sudden working from home.
These are signs of Service delivery models that are not adaptive. Digital automation is key in sustaining Global Business Services. Let us help you define an SDM strategy that is fit for you and embrace future uncertainty!
All signs of SDM that is not agile.
We start by defining the guiding principles for your new SDM strategy. Next, we evaluate your existing SDM and provide improvement options, including digital automation impact, mitigating risks, the business case, and a detailed roadmap to make the change happen.
The final objective is to make your organization more flexible, scalable, cost-efficient, and equipped with an effective platform for delivering finance and business enabling processes that will support your overall growth strategy and reduce your internal complexity.
As all strategies are as good as them getting implemented, we will ensure to implement them in the right way to get the most value out of the SDM strategy for you.
