FAQ: How do I know the project will work?

10th November 2016

The Casewise FAQ blog series provides insights from our top consultants into key issues impacting the business process and enterprise architecture industries

Many customers come to Casewise because they want to get everyone in the organization on the same page and talking the same language. Some corporations grow through acquisition, and each company comes with its own processes, its own way of doing things. Even within a large corporation that has grown organically, different divisions and departments will adopt their own systems.

The aim of business modeling is standardizing processes and communication, as well as improving the sharing of knowledge. If a business transformation project is a lengthy and costly process, the risk of it not ‘paying off’ can create a reluctance to proceed.

The beauty of the Casewise approach is that it is effective in yielding results much faster than companies can manage on their own. With any large project, visibility of the whole operation is important. You want to have sight of how your company operates; where are your processes; where are your redundancies and gaps?

If you take too long to evaluate all the elements, gather input from stakeholders and take months to define where you are, you get to a point where budgets may have changed and things have moved on. The Casewise workshop approach – with our people and our tools – lets us hold up a mirror and do a quick assessment. We can capture the models and show you a picture of your organization far faster than you can and often in a way you’ve never seen before.

It’s like going to the doctor with a bad knee. You can wait a couple of years to see if it gets better or you can go to a doctor, take an x-ray and see what’s going on. In short, you can be confident that the Casewise approach works because you get visibility and outputs very quickly in the process.
