Getting a Digital Transformation Project Back on Track

Stoke Consulting - Executive Coaching | Leadership Development | Management Consultants | Our Team

Our client was one of Australia’s largest defence partners providing a wide range of high technology products and services. They had multiple core systems that were outdated and were a genuine constraint to business growth.


A digital transformation program had been established to upgrade core systems. However, the program was off track and stuck. There was significant overspending, a scope that wasn’t locked in, no clear delivery schedule, no business engagement, and a disengaged project team.

A business case existed with defined benefits but no plan to realise them. There was a perception that technology was going to solve the problems without addressing people and processes.

To solve this, we helped the client get back to basics.

We succeeded in helping the business to transform. New systems were deployed, more efficient business processes were developed, roles and responsibilities were clearly defined, and organisational accountabilities were established. We were able to demonstrate clear improvements in KPIs in line with the expected benefits in Business Case.
