Four Steps For A Successful Business Transformation
A business transformation, especially one focused on the application of digital technologies, fundamentally changes the way operational work is done.
Conventional wisdom says operational efforts need to address people, process, and technology. For business transformations, InfoNovus believes, business goals and desired benefits are the essential elements of context for reinventing business processes. Then people and technology can be addressed based on that foundation.
InfoNovus's approach to business transformation consists of four steps.
Design business operations

Legacy IT technologies and practices, and the time, resources, and costs they consume, are obstacles to business reinvention and operational transformation.
InfoNovus Instant IT® Business Design makes technology secondary to the people and processes of the business. Business Design puts business goals and the way people need their work to be structured first. Applications and technology are generated to conform to the business instead of the reverse.
Instant IT® Business Design Helps Companies Reinvent And Transform Their Business Operations
A business transformation is more than creating a vision and tasking an organization to implement it. Transformation begins with goals and objectives for the business. Instant IT® uses those goals and objectives to design business operations that will achieve them.
By using a rigorous business design process, organizational leaders are guided in thinking through exactly how all aspects of operational work will change.
New workflows and operational work are needed to operationalize a transformation to achieve its goals and objectives. Success requires thinking through how a transformed business will operate from top to bottom, among different units, and between customers/users and those who work for all parts of the organization – after all, if business operations aren’t changed across the board then a transformation has not occurred.
The InfoNovus Process For Business Transformation
Any business transformation begins with establishing the strategic goals and objectives for the transformation effort. These need to identify the measurable results, metrics, and outcomes to be used to determine the success of the transformation effort.

The fundamental question behind a business transformation is “How will we need to operate to achieve our goals?” Moving from today’s standard operating procedure to one that is highly accelerated and (possibly) automated requires business process reengineering.

Highly accelerated and automated business processes need new ways of doing work. Designing work, especially for innovative or unique operational actions, the way it needs to be done for a transformed process is much more effective than coming up with solutions that dictate how work must be done.
Trying to establish new operational processes without the systems needed to support them will undermine a business transformation effort. A successful transformation requires both a well-thought-out design of operational work in a reinvented business process and the specific IT applications that will enable those working with the new processes.
