Five reasons why business transformation should not be driven by your ERP system

How to align your business vision with your operating vision by establishing an independent transformation and excellence platform above the IT application systems

The rules of the game are changing in many industries and not just as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Companies in the energy, automotive and financial sectors are feeling immense pressure to adapt their business models in order to remain successful in the face of radically-altered market conditions.

In recent years, many transformation projects have not achieved the desired effect, despite high levels of investment. One of the main reasons for this is the lack of a link between strategic decisions and business operations. Transformation can only succeed if the adapted business model is mapped to the core business processes and if all employees are integrated into the ‘new way of working’.

It is obvious that such a reorientation, linking strategic decisions with the company’s business operating model, cannot be managed with paper, pencil and slides. It requires a digital platform that encompasses all relevant assets of the company and serves as the basis of the change management process. Gartner uses the term ‘digital twin of an organization’ (DTO) to characterize such a platform, and often this is also referred to as an ‘enterprise management system’ (EMS).
