I’m a C-level executive

At Sharp Elephant we have seen how strategic planning and enterprise architecture can inform the decisions of C-level executives on a daily basis.  Our Clients seek our help to deal with a variety of business issues, such as:

I need to get my executive team or board on the same page

Establishing clarity across the leadership team in relation to strategy, including the business operating model and how it functions, remains a major challenge for CEOs and business executives. Sharp Elephant can assist you to build the artifacts of strategy and justification based on your business requirements, drives and needs. Our best-practice methods bring international learnings and leading edge thinking to these activities. Let us help you then to bring your team together through establishing a common perspective on the critical business capabilities that are needed with respect to the vision of your business.

I need to develop a strategy for transformation

Often the requirement for business transformation is difficult to argue in terms that substantiate the scale of investment required. At Sharp Elephant we use strategic planning techniques and capability-based planning methods to reveal the arguments for change and the roadmap to get you there.

I need a strategy to support this year’s planning cycle

The challenge for technology executives is to deliver an IT strategy that resonates with business stakeholders; one that business heads will support because they understand how their success is dependent upon the strategy. Sharp Elephant’s Business and Technology Framework will reveal the strategies and roadmaps necessary to achieve your goals; demonstrating linkages to existing business capabilities and the business motivation for change together with the technology capabilities required to achieve the business outcomes.

I need to justify our investment in Information Technology

Often the requirement for business transformation is difficult to argue in terms that substantiate the scale of investment required. At Sharp Elephant we use strategic planning techniques and capability-based planning methods to reveal the arguments for change and the roadmap to get you there.

I need to prioritise our IT investment portfolio

Investment demand throughout the business invariably exceeds available capital, thus effective prioritisation of the investment portfolio becomes a critical capability. Sharp Elephant’s techniques for linking business mission, vision, strategies, goals, tactics and objectives to business outcomes supported by business capabilities have presented corporations with the ability to prioritise with clear traceability to the strategic agenda.

I need to estimate cost impacts of my change options

Whether change is transformational or incremental, there are always options and trade-offs with different impacts and cost benefits. Sharp Elephant’s business capability assessments and innovative enterprise architecture methods support the assessment of cost, complexity, risk and capability improvement and supports discussion within and between business divisions.

I need a reliable partner to deliver a package of work on an outcomes basis

Many corporations are moving to contracting delivery on an outcomes basis. Sharp Elephant prefers to work on an outcomes basis, allowing customers to fix their delivery costs and share the risk of delivery more effectively.
