Business Transformation

Take control of your company’s future 

Business — and the nature of work as we know it —  is transforming. Business leaders are under mounting pressure to deliver greater strategic value and more meaningful data and analysis — all while improving performance at a lower cost to the business. 

Meanwhile, unprecedented market complexities necessitate new efficiency drivers. Failure to be agile and responsive in the face of quickly evolving conditions can manifest as cost and productivity pressures, business partner dissatisfaction, poor employee morale, fragmented business models, talent shortages and greater risk exposure.

Transformation of this nature, spanning digital, business and financial considerations, has been a very real concern for some time, but leaders need to take action now.

As the world of work continues to transform at a fundamental level, there is only one sustainable, long-term response: transform with it. Change is coming, and leaders need to adapt to thrive and put their businesses on a long-term path to success.

At CFGI, our dynamic, cross-functional experts build partnerships with businesses to develop, execute and maintain highly successful transformation strategies from visioning through design and execution. We draw on deep expertise in business and digital transformation to help you identify your north star and implement the people, process and technology changes to get there.  

Our methodology

At CFGI, we address the demands and needs of business leaders by taking a methodical approach to business transformation and aligning those strategies with long-term objectives. Leaders must embrace disruptors rather than avoid or delay them. Making honest appraisals of the current state of your organization and the gulf between where you are today and where you want to be is the only way to enact real change.

We urge clients to begin every transformation initiative by answering these 5 key questions:

  • What is the work?
  • Who does the work?
  • Where is the work done?
  • How is the work done?
  • Why change how work is done?

How we facilitate transformation

The imperative to transform has never been more urgent. Nevertheless, businesses must have a clear, well-supported, highly structured and data-driven approach to transformation. Otherwise, they risk walking straight into one of many potential pitfalls: unclear business strategies, limited buy-in, insufficient understanding of expectations, reactive stakeholder engagement, greater process complexity that fails to actually solve any problems, poor use of technology and, ultimately, a money pit.

At CFGI, we methodically preempt these pitfalls by delivering:

  • Transparency and clarity with both bottom-up and top-down strategies.
  • Change enablement at all levels of the organization. 
  • Hands-on support,collaboration and engagement with all stakeholders.
  • Clear change management protocols with streamlined communications.
  • Data-driven decision-making and quantifiable success metrics.
  • Empathy, respect and thoughtfulness during change implementation.
