Helping you harness the power of technology to transform your business
What We Do
The Advisory Hub help our clients innovate and transform, turning their vision into a reality. For our latest capability statement see here.
The ICT landscape is changing rapidly and constantly presenting new opportunities for competitive advantage. Equally there are new threats every day, as the digital economy allows smaller, more agile start-ups to challenge traditional business.
The challenge for established organisations today, is harnessing these powerful new ways of driving innovation, whilst also dealing with legacy systems, cumbersome infrastructure, outdated processes and engrained cultural practices.
The Advisory Hub has years of experience in leading and managing business transformation initiatives.
We have a track record for delivering large scale Cloud adoption initiatives and ERP implementations, as well as small-to-medium scale change programmes such as process redesign, organisational restructure, departmental change initiatives and mergers.
Fundamentally, we help our clients create a better linkage between their business and technology, and at a high-level, this is what we can deliver.
Our Services in Detail
Since 2008, we have continued to expand our capability, allowing us to provide a full range of services to support business transformations, large scale IT projects and complex change and innovation programmes.
Our services are built around four major challenges clients experience when taking on innovation;
- Strategy and Insight – helping organisations develop a compelling vision for their future
- Innovation and Transformation – designing platforms from the customer experience perspective backwards
- Capability and Change – building future ready organisations and organizational structures
- Intelligence – providing organisations with the agile planning, reporting and information needed, to make better business decisions in real time
Strategy and Insight
Insight is knowledge in the form of perspective, understanding or deduction, whilst Strategy is a plan to bring about a desired future.
For The Advisory Hub, insight it is the ability to be able to wade through all of the issues, considerations and possibilities to identify the real problem. And delivering a strategy is what will move you from your problem to a better business future-state.
Providing our insight and delivering a strategy come from real world experience across a number of different sectors, and work-life experiences. And our consultants have experience as Department Heads, Chief Information Officers, IT Managers, Senior Business Managers and consulting into Chief company Officers.
So whether it be a big problem or small problem, we can help give you the insight you need to build the strategy that will help your business achieve its goals.
Innovation and Transformation
Innovation and Business transformation is the process of profound and radical change that orients an organisation in a new direction, and takes it to an entirely different level of effectiveness.
For organisations to survive in today’s business environment, transformation is a given, as is leveraging technology to better support the core strategies of the business.
Whether your transformation requires a review of your business, business processes, technology, governance or strategy, The Advisory Hub has the people who can deliver this.
Project and Programme Management
The ability to deliver projects and programmes that improve an organisation’s effectiveness in their market, save them money or enable them to grow their business means drawing on a number of knowledge and experience areas.
Aligning integration, scope, time, cost, quality, procurement, human resources, communications, risk management and stakeholder management with an organisations core-business strategies underpins all of our engagements.
When the linkage between the business and IT is broken, the business is impacted in so many ways.
In fact some people would argue that we are in the midst of another industrial revolution, with technology being the enabler for organisations to make that next great leap forward in terms of growth, profitable and effectiveness in their markets.
For The Advisory Hub, IT Recovery is re-aligning the efforts of the IT organization with the core strategies of the business and the projects the business is looking to implement.
It is too easy for an IT department to become inwardly focused on ‘keeping the lights on’ and maintaining the status quo.
But this won’t grow the business or change how an organization engages more effectively with their customers and delivers those customers better services and outcomes.
Whether it be project recovery, programme recovery, or recovery of an entire IT department, we have the skills and capability to re-align your IT and building that linkage between the business and IT.
The Advisory Hub can also provide a range of other consulting and advisory services.
We can provide business reviews, process reviews, recovery services for a failed project or entire IT department, defining a strategy on how IT can more effectively support your business, or assistance implementing a project or programmes of work.
We can also provide On Demand executive services focused on Information Technology, Human Resources, Change Management and Procurement, for those organisations who need that high-level, strategic thinking and direction to align your people, processes and technology with your core business strategies, but don’t have the requirement for that as a full time service.
