Within business, change can often be seen as the only constant. Often businesses are aware they need to change but are unsure where this innovation should start.
For many organisations, the momentous task of overhauling legacy systems and infrastructure is one of the main reasons that they’re apprehensive about taking on a full-scale digital transformation project. Identifying a smaller area for innovation could be a starting point but run the risk of becoming isolated, tactical initiatives – so the question is: how can you avoid this?
It’s easy to get lost within the technology and lose sight of your main business objectives. Find out how to identify priority areas for change in your business and why you need to use a strategic approach to ensure a successful automation project across your organisation.
Identifying Opportunities with Automation
Each individual organisation is made up of a complex web of systems and processes – and each process is made up by a sequence of tasks and interactions with your under-pinning infrastructure. Organisations which thoroughly prepare, focusing on assessing the feasibility and readiness of operations to implement automation, are those who succeed within their automation project.
It’s also important to secure all required key stakeholder buy-in. An automation initiative will involve more than just those in the line of business of the target process for automation. The level of involvement and impact on these teams will vary, but to uncover any potential roadblocks a coordinated approach and buy in is required.
Cortex has designed a unique solution to both challenges – the automation design sprint. Spanning two weeks, this technology and vendor agnostic program, enables you to achieve your digital transformation vision, facilitating a roadmap that aligns your strategy with your digital operations vision.
What to Expect With Cortex’s Automation Design Sprint
Automation design sprints are ideal for helping your team separate business needs from technology hierarchies, and even technology itself.
The sprint works by separating the technology capabilities of automation software from the unique goals and objectives that you wish to achieve. By concentrating solely on the desired outcomes, organisations can confidently highlight the challenges and pain-points that are most important to focus on, and pinpoint areas of resource that can help their project succeed.
The Cortex Automation Design Sprint facilitates productive discussion around your business KPIs and, with the support of our automation knowledge experts, helps you refine an automation blueprint for success.
In addition to identifying the primary automation targets, the sessions are a powerful tool to galvanize a transformational mindset ahead of your Digital Evolution project.
