Bringing a business analytics center to life
Our client was facing an organizational restructuring and planned to introduce a new business analytics center (BAC) in order to implement advanced and predictive analytics use-cases for the whole organization. The customer needed strategic and operational advice to start his BAC in the best fitting way for the company.
Coming from a very operational way of thinking the goal for our client was, to refine the current approach as well as to define a holistic implementation strategy including all relevant aspects that are required to make the project a success.
Approach in detail
Analysis based on workshop series
To help our client, we conducted a series of workshops to assess the as-is situation as well as to derive a strategy to implement the new advanced analytics oriented approach within the organization.
Development of a data strategy
We defined a holistic strategy by developing a dedicated mission, vision as well as core values of the new Business Analytics Center.
Guidance on organizational transformation and analytics empowerment
We established the required organizational structure including new roles and responsibilities with focus on agility, scalability and strategic alliances to ensure a fast implementation. Based on best-practices, we suggested required tools, trainings and coachings as well as change management measures including a detailed internal communication concept to enable higher management levels as well as the operational staff to work with the new approach.
Use case funnel management based on a feasibility matrix
We assessed and prioritized existing and new use cases using a feasibility matrix as well as defined lighthouse projects to reduce internal barriers.
With a lean workshop approach we developed the new implementation strategy for our client including the refinement of the overarching data strategy, the definition of the required new organizational structure, a framework for use-case management as well as the suggestion of empowerment and change measures. Using the new holistic approach our client will be able to establish his new data-driven approach in the organization.
