People, Processes, Systems and Information are all core elements of how things get done. Understanding the flow of information through your business, and how that impacts your ability to achieve results is key to successful transformation.
Fill The Gap recognise there are many hurdles to transformation success. Moving to an Agile environment helps organisations with their Digital Enablement journey, however, alone, it doesn’t shift the needle when it comes to failed IT projects. What does shift the needle, is data-driven, evidence-based decision making tools that allow decision makers to confirm intended benefits are going to be realised, prior to any real world changes being made.
LINQ makes this happen.
A digital representation of your business
Using just four descriptors – Information, Action, Systems and People – LINQ can be used to describe how your business works, in any domain, at any level of detail, in a way that everyone can understand.
LINQ’s ease of use means you don’t need specialist skills to start modelling your business. Current state capture can be up to 10x faster than with legacy drawing tools, and maintaining your current state is a breeze.
LINQ’s tagging capabilities and associated Impact Assessment Dashboard provide instant insight into the “size of the prize”. Areas earmarked for automation, risk mitigation, even sustainability can be tagged and evaluated to determine return on investment,
Simply clone the completed current state, and edit to incorporate the future state transformation and hit Compare. LINQ will show you exactly what changes through separate People, System, Information and Action lenses so that you can fully understand the impact and mitigate the risk that elements have been forgotten.
1. Model your current state process
Start from scratch or edit a tried and proven template –
the LINQ canvas is your new secret weapon for modelling, analysing and presenting to clients
2. Tag Areas for Improvement and Analyse Return
Talk the language of your decision makers. Use Insights to show real savings that can be made along with impact on strategic objectives – before you’ve even started talking about what the solution might be!
3. Model and Compare Your Future State
Clone your current state and plug in the changes proposed to rapidly develop understanding of your future state’s impact on people, systems, actions and information; along with costs, productivity and strategic outcomes
LINQ allows you to SEE your organisation in a new way. LINQ’s language lets you capture a view of your business that you’ve never had before; a cross-organisational perspective of your people, processes, technology & information and how they support what you do.
Through the modelling of scenarios of change, you can SOLVE your business transformation challenge; quickly understand your starting point, provide information to decision makers they really understand and prioritise your investment.
Finally you can take the entire organisation on the journey with you as you SHARE the outcomes that will be delivered.
Understand where the complexity in your business lies and the impact it has on your ability to create real business value. Experiment with the impact of automation in the digital twin helping you to see how that changes the way people work and the value they create.
Build business cases for change faster than ever before. Create narratives for the Executive and decision makers which will make them take notice of the change you are proposing. It will almost become negligent not to act on the basis of the evidence you will show.
Learn what your team does, who they interact with and how that communication may be improved. Validate roles and ensure that cross-team communication breaks down silos to ensure your business runs as efficiently and effectively as possible.
Understand how much the assets you rely on really cost to produce. Move the value conversation away from speculation and gut feel to being data-driven. With this data to hand, understanding how change can reduce operational costs and increase value is a game changer.
Stop relying on who shouts the loudest, or who has been here the longest as the prioritisation work for projects and programmes of work. Use value as the criteria through which to assess the impact of change, and deliver the most valuable change first – all supported by clear data-driven insights.
Through the capture of your current and future states, LINQs insights will tell the story of the impact of your change, before you start any work. LINQs insight cards quantify and qualify the change enabling you to understand what successful transformation looks like and share this with the entire organisation.
