New business transformation programme? What could go wrong?

What does a beautiful meal have to do with business transformation?

Transformation is a key phrase in everyone's mind right now, but it's not always smooth sailing. Gary Burke, one of our Camelot Experts has provided us with a key insight using a very simple dinner party example.

Consider this….

If you enjoy entertaining and cooking for friends, you wouldn't think twice about having a handful of friends over for dinner at the weekend. However, if it wasn’t a handful of friends but a ten-course banquet for 100 people (it's still cooking and entertaining!) you'd recognise that a different set of skills and experience would be needed to do this successfully.

Transformation is like a banquet, and if you approach it like 'cooking for friends', it's not going to end well.

This simple example shows us how easy it would be to underestimate the complexities and challenges when undertaking a transformation programme. In today’s fast-paced and resource-constrained environment, making informed decisions and determining the right approach at the outset of any transformation initiative is imperative to avoid some of the all-too-common pitfalls. 


Transformation programmes – business, digital, organisational or any other flavour of transformation – don’t traditionally have a great reputation for success.


A key factor for the lack of success is that what’s involved and the impact the transformation will have on the organisation is often underestimated. This can easily result in the wrong approach being taken and, before you know it, the problems start… possibly ending up with a board meeting some months later where you need to discuss the huge amount of money already spent, the lack of progress and how to get the programme back on track.
