Solution features and functionality

EY teams help you address uncertainty and increase confidence by balancing the emotional and rational aspects of transformation. The Transformation Delivery solution uses a “future-back” approach, exploring possible futures and defining the desired future state.

  • Employ the Transformation Realized approach

    Our approach, Transformation Realized, is anchored on three core principles to create value.

    • Humans@Center: Our research with Oxford University’s Saïd Business School found that if you prepare for and manage people’s emotional journeys, you can increase the likelihood of success by 2.6x.
    • Technology@Speed: Our delivery approach is data-informed and tech-enabled, using proven, scalable solutions from the EY Transformation Platform. Data from our transformation health tracker helps you monitor confidence and keep performance on track.
    • Innovation@Scale: We follow agile and hybrid approaches, embedding design thinking and labs with a culture of continuous feedback and improvement. This helps to align leadership, engage the transformation team, and accelerate design and delivery. We have the ability to rapidly scale globally as needed.
  • Prepare your people for transformation success

    To get the three key areas of a transformation right, you need to put humans at the center.

    Align and equip leadership

    • Ask yourselves: Why are we doing this and is it bold enough? Create a compelling vision to drive powerful emotional connections.
    • Do you know who’s in? Align leaders so they’re ready to commit.
    • How will you get there? Commit to resource with the right people, a solid business case and budgets.
    • Answer their unspoken question, “What’s in it for me?” Build and strengthen leadership capabilities, encourage grassroots influence.

    Build and maintain momentum

    • Get the right team in place, give them authority and invest in developing a high-performing team.
    • Put simple, explainable methods, processes and tools in a physical “home” space.
    • Encourage experimentation and adaptation – it’s okay to get some things wrong along the way.
    • Embed continuous learning and improvement into agile working.
    • Deliver in manageable increments and releases with transparent, visible progress that also addresses delivery risks.

    Create a social movement

    • Identify influencers and involve them in shaping the vision narrative, objectives and approach.
    • Seek and incorporate regular feedback from customers and employees to continuously improve.
    • Test and refresh hypotheses.
    • Put in place mechanisms to hear from all employees, not just the vocal ones, and use this to inform communications.
  • Measure and improve confidence over time

    To improve confidence, you need to measure it. We use a suite of different assessments tailored to measure the main dimensions:

    • Capabilities: Are the right structures, processes, tools and skills in place? What is the plan to mature and evolve them over time or for different needs?
    • Content: Does the roadmap address prioritized value-generating initiatives and human-centered experience journeys for employees, customers and the transformation team?
    • Culture: How consistently are leadership and the transformation team demonstrating the right behaviors to drive the desired culture?
