Delivering change is hard. MXA helps organisations to succeed at large-scale change by driving a constant focus on outcomes. We work with everyone involved or impacted by the change to align values and deliver tangible benefits.
We specialise in delivering compelling business cases, designing programs and projects with benefits up-front, sourcing and engaging delivery partners and benefit realisation mapping.
We also know that sometimes projects don’t go to plan, and we can provide rapid support to review, identify a path forward, and set the project back on track.
Our clients trust us to develop business cases for projects with funding approved from $100 million down to $100 thousand.
For large and complex business cases, we bring a multi-disciplinary team that draws on our other methodologies and experience, such as:
- User Research, Human-Centred Design and Design Thinking
- Benefits Profiling and Benefits-Based Planning
- Business Architecture
- Strategic Architecture and Enterprise Architecture
- IT and Digital Strategy
- Strategic Options Comparison
- Systems Modernisation
- Options Comparison and Investment Prioritisation
- Program Planning
This has seen many programs planned by MXA delivered on time and budget, realising tangible benefits.
We work closely with senior executives to embed ongoing governance and management based on benefits, rather than just the typical measures of time, cost and scope. We help our clients understand the relationship between benefits, project outputs, and strategic organisational capability building work.
We tailor our methods to suit each situation, often using a multi-step prioritisation process, such as ranking investment options by ‘attractiveness ‘and ‘achievability’. This results in well-informed decisions and well-spent money.
Sourcing & Procurement
Selecting the right transformation partners is critical to a successful program.
We help our clients to design an appropriate procurement process, develop clear requirements that will solicit the right responses, and evaluate and select transformation partners. This results in the right partners being selected, with a positive relationship from day one, greatly increasing the program’s chance of success.
Reducing costs can be a complex exercise as a short-term gain may lead to longer-term expenses without proper planning.
We help clients to identify opportunities for cost reduction, for example through:
- redesigning overly complex processes
Fee Structure & Pricing Strategy
Selecting the right pricing strategy can have a significant impact on the success or failure of a product.
Using our industry knowledge and expertise, in conjunction with market research and competition analysis, we help clients define a pricing strategy or fee structure that will be sustainable and success in the given market.
We bring together all of the key stakeholders to ensure decisions on changing approach, scope or benefits are well considered, with buy-in from all sides, creating ongoing alignment and smooth delivery.
