Here are some of the critical steps to strategic change in the Strategy to Execution Framework to enable successful implementation of change and transformation:
Program Strategy — The program strategy provides the foundations for a transformation or change. It helps to determine how to solve business problems in a way that will ensure the best result.
Sponsorship and Governance Framework — The sponsorship and governance framework creates terms of reference document that outlines the program organisation structure, roles, and responsibilities of each of the functional areas.
Stakeholder Strategy — The purpose of the stakeholder strategy is to form partnerships with the stakeholders, with the “term partnership” referred to as establishing working and committed relationships.
Execution Roadmaps — Execution roadmaps have value because they provide a high-level view of all the moving parts of programs in context. They also provide focus on the outcome and what is needed when and by whom.
Business Case — A business case captures the reasoning and justification for initiating the program or project and the anticipated commercial benefits. It enables the executive to make an investment decision.
Sourcing Strategy — A sourcing strategy guides procurement. It ensures alignment with the information, communication, and technology (ITC) strategy.
User Journeys — User journeys are the visualisation of the strategy. Their construction leverages design thinking and is part of sensemaking for stakeholders.
Transition Strategy — A transition strategy focuses on the long-term strategy of the transformation and the future releases and generations. It helps inform the sourcing strategy and procurement of services for ongoing support and maintenance of products and services.
Change and Adoption Strategy — A change and adoption strategy focuses on adoption and the strategies for change. It is key to delineating the strategic change and activities required for the transformation and the organisation change and activities required.
