Efficient and effective change demands an understanding of the present state and its deficiencies. Based on the Digital Readiness Assessment, Ginkgo has developed a range of assessments that are conducted jointly with our clients and tailored to their needs to define a clear starting point and structured approach to measuring progress.
Our analysis allows us to assess the current maturity level of a company’s strategy, technology, people and culture, customers, products and services as well as processes, governance, and organization along the Digital Journey. Additionally, Ginkgo offers special focus assessments that cover topics such as Growth, Crisis Readiness, Security, and more.
Ginkgo’s client was awarded a new IT service contract for comprehensive ERP-related services. During the transition from the previous service provider, it was recognized that independent risk management was required to safeguard this extremely critical project.
Applying Ginkgo’s Transition Risk Assessment and Management Method, the project was able to identify and initiate optimization requirements. The transition was performed without any service interruptions and in line with the original time plan.
IT Digitalization Strategy
Ginkgo conducted a Digital Readiness Assessment for a leading commercial vehicle manufacturer as the first phase in an IT and digitalization strategy development project. Structured interviews with all IT directors and the majority of team leaders provided a comprehensive evaluation of the customer’s digital readiness and included the most important pain points and quick wins.
Sourcing and procurement focused pre-merger assessment
Gingko conducted its Digital Readiness Assessment for a leading German energy provider with focus on a possible merger and special attention to sourcing & procurement. Through CFO and global sourcing workshops the project delivered insights across management levels and business units and identified key priorities and focus areas of the IT and digitization strategy which needed to be developed for the upcoming company growth and compliance for 40,000 employees.
IT Strategy Transformation Kick-Off
A leading testing, inspection and certification (TIC) company hired Ginkgo for the first phase of a global IT strategy transformation program. The Digital Readiness Assessment was initiated with a CIO workshop to identify main priorities and focus areas of the IT and digitization strategy to be developed. Sixty structured interviews with all stakeholders from IT and the department based on a customized DRA questionnaire were conducted and the resulting scoring validated in IT management workshops.
