As public and private sector organisations undertake more projects and programmes to deliver growth, sustainability and performance improvement, we are witnessing increasing programme complexity, scale, duration, risk and an evolving shape of the supply chain ecosystem. This means investors, stakeholders, intelligent-clients and delivery agencies must design operating models that enable them to Strategize, Set-up and Deliver major programmes, and get this right first time.

In this session, Nathan will explore the fundamentals of building operating models for the future right, with a focus on:

  • Strategy – taking time to understand…purpose, outcomes, approaches, corporate and programme capability, business and benefits case, systems, data and business architecture and risk appetite…and building this into a strategy for the Operating Model to drive performance within.
  • Set-up – ensuring the right capabilities, processes, partners, systems, tools, funds, data and business governance, mitigations etc are in place, before initiation.
  • Delivery – driving accurate, timely, and efficient delivery of results…then optimising performance and pace through robotic process automation (RPA), predictive data analytics, pre-emptive cyber and programme risk assessment and avoidance etc.

BT Group announced in 2017 that the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network) would be closed down in 2025. Are you ready? Have you thought about all the use cases for PSTN? Do you know your full inventory and the impact on your business?

Understanding the impact to your business operation from the shut off is imperative to ensure smooth operational transition, but equally no important services are missed. The answer, ultimately, lies in moving to cloud voice. But with businesses facing wave after wave of financial disruption, large-scale investment and transformation is hard to justify. 

During this 40-minute boardroom session, Connect’s Product Director, Chris Wallace will discuss a vital alternative route to enhancing voice for all users: ISIP.

We will explain -

  • How ISIP works
  • How it integrates with the contact centre to enhance CX
  • How it addresses regulatory concerns worldwide, as well as answering questions from attendees

Agile development focusses on flexibility and rapid changes, while many security methodologies require a more systematic approach. Does your security strategy enable agile development or create a blocker?

70% of digital transformations fail - almost because they’re designed to. When transformations don’t consider ‘culture’, they lose the ability to evolve as needed; and so experienced leaders realise how ‘culture’ is an essential dimension to IT transformation. 

There are implicit financial structures in every organisation. If you want to change an organisation, you need to look at how money works within it. These topologies are invisible and exert a powerful hidden influence which often hinders change. Understanding their influence is crucial to sustainable business transformation.

Join us for this boardroom discussion where we will be unpacking a deeper structural cause of problems in change management - how money flows through the organisation.

Key Takeaways

  • A unique understanding of money flows, cultural gaps and how your finance team could change everything - some immediate to-do’s!

  • Transformational awareness of behaviour, goals and the way financial decisions are made

  • Connections with peers who share similar constraints
