Current State Assessment (CSA) - We assess people, technology, and critical path Journeys quickly through Blue.cloud standard approach. Our template is built based on our experiences of been there and done it as corporate executives. Part of our team includes technical and business architects along with financial analysts and process engineers to cover the economic, technical, people and process focal areas. We always look for savings and quick hits as part of our assessment. We seek details about opportunities and challenges and gather examples supported by observations. Since we have owned IT as a functional group, we provide recommendations based on what we have found and what has worked with us and other clients in the past. To make life even easier, we can provide Root Case Analysis (RCA) and leadership for the execution of identified recommendations, if needed.
Executive as a Service – Blue.cloud’s Strategic Management Consulting team consists of former corporate executives with extensive professional networks. Therefore, we can provide an emergency stop gap for an unexpected executive opening or added help for executives during massive transformational change. Our client’s most common catalysts for a need of an Executive as a Service are:
- Enterprise Transformation initiative requires short-term leadership to take on transformation project leadership or business as usual leadership so current executives can deliver the enterprise value that only employees can deliver.
- A sudden departure of a Sr. Director, VP, C-Suite or even BOD may occur at a critical time and an immediate short-term replacement is required.
- You are considering a major acquisition or divestiture and need access to multiple executives with different functional expertise to help assess or build a plan.
- Your leaders need advisors, sounding board, or alternate perspectives
- To provide external cross industry perspective with executive presence and insight
- There is a need to reinvigorate innovation, strategic, and hands-on execution.
