Internal process optimisation (Lean-Digital-Automation)
An Internal process optimisation is a review of current operational processes and systems to identify improvement opportunities. Some processes examples are sales, finance, production, logistics and product development. The focus should be on eliminating waste by introducing easier, faster processes backed up by automation and/or cloud based digital systems. The analysis should include a review of cyber security risks and recommendations to reduce risk, including working towards international security standards that are becoming a requirement to operate internationally.
Enhancing Customer Digital experience
(Product, Service, Route to Market, Channels)
The enhancement of a customer’s digital experience is a review of current products, services, & channels and the potential to create a high-quality digital experience for new or existing customers.
This is one through a review of the customer journey(s), all the customer touchpoints, from sales, digital marketing, customer service, delivery, and so on. This also should include a review of cyber security risks and recommendations to reduce risk, including working towards international security standards that are becoming a requirement to operate internationally.
Becoming a Data-Driven Business
To become a data driven business a review of current performance data is used to identify gaps and improvement opportunities.
