Companies regularly face changes that are business-critical, urgent and carry significant consequences in case of failure. Typical examples are post-merger integrations, a setup of shared service centers, outsourcing/insourcing, provider transitions or IT implementations.
Many of such transformations are highly complex, i.e. consist of many single initiatives with dependencies, have a significant budget to be managed and require several internal stakeholders and external partners to be coordinated. Often these programs have to be delivered under cost constraints and in a tight time schedule. Dealing effectively with these initiatives requires experience and capabilities - which are often unavailable internally in the companies at the necessary level.
