Merlin's Business Transformation practice works with Executives to shape an achievable business transformation ambition and strategy.

 

Our proven Business Performance Diagnostic provides the insight and foundation upon which to formulate new business models including strategic capability and operating models.

 

Our team works closely with our Operations, Finance and HR Transformation practices to align these functional capabilities and operating models to develop the more granular approach to implementation and close any talent gaps.

 

We are data-led in our work using internal and external sources, including benchmarking, to support the case for change and focus our approach on deliverable benefits and outcomes.

 

Central to much of what we do involves IT Transformation, determining which systems might be required to underpin and automate any Business Transformation changes identified.  A key element of our Finance Transformation capability (below) is the engagement of our Sourcing and Supplier Management practitioners who support end-to-end systems selection.

 

Then, to implementation, where we roll our sleeves up further to help manage the moving parts and support Executives to realise their value ambitions.

 

In addition to supporting client organisations to design and execute business transformation programmes successfully, we are often engaged in an advisory or assurance capacity by executives who have issues or concerns over change programmes that are underway.

 

We partner with a number of technology providers including Oracle (Cloud & E-Business Suite).
