Our team has broad experience...

No two business transformations are the same.  Every organisation has their own unique challenges, requiring different approaches for success.   

Leveraging a data-driven approach and a proven framework, we have supported transformations for organisations across many different industries.   Here are just a few examples of our work and how we may be able to assist your business… 

Your trusted partner for business transformations...

More than 70% of organisations are currently embarking on a business transformation^, yet sadly less than 30% of them will deliver on their expected benefits#

Most organisations don’t have the required culture, skills, and experience, and as a result they throw technology solutions at business problems without adequate planning and organisational readiness.    Successful transformations require a clearly defined future-state operating model, carefully planned strategic delivery roadmap, fit-for-purpose change structures, and best-in-class governance frameworks.  At Centric Delta, we have proven experience across the full business transformation lifecycle.

Centralisation of branch network for large Australian Financial Services org resulting in >$8M cost savings over 3 years.

Opportunity

  • Large and costly branch network primarily selling and servicing Personal Loans and cross-selling Credit Insurance and Credit Cards.
  • Poor quality and risk governance given lack of operational controls and technology constraints in the decentralised sales environment. 
  • Difficulties remotely managing the variation in performance for 400+ remote sales staff.
  • Large cost challenges in modernising technology across the branch footprint resulting in years of underinvestment and poor system performance and downtime. 
  • Ineffective capability development due to the decentralisation of the workforce and challenges implementing solutions remotely. 

Approach

  • Developed a 3-year, multi-phased strategy to exit the decentralised branch network and implement centralised sales operations, underpinned by an advanced geospatial demand and profit analysis to identify the optimal sequencing of branch exits over time. 
  • Led the ongoing operational transition out of the branch network, while concurrently developing and building a centralised sales target operating model. 
  • The new target operating model included full organisational design, process re-engineering, systems/app customisation and enhancements, data and reporting requirements, governance frameworks and operational readiness planning. 
  • Supported the successful transition to the new target operating model. 
  • Developed and implemented the ongoing quality assurance and performance frameworks to drive improved sales, quality, and regulatory compliance.

Benefits

  • >$8M cost savings over 3 years through a ~35% reduction in resources and fixed-cost overheads. 
  • All Sales targets were met and maintained within 3 months of centralising operations. 
  • Optimised customer and staff experience by significantly reducing effort resulting through improved process automation and digitisation. 
  • Reduced operational risk through more effective risk-based monitoring and supervision.
