Create and optimize Business Operating Models for successful project delivery

Challenges
you are facing now

The pace of change keeps accelerating and organizations should have solid foundations to perform despite shifting conditions. They require organizational structures that give management clear overview of their teams’ situation to take good decisions.

Also, organizations sometimes invest in large scale agile transformation, but get often mixed results. Certain teams perform well, some struggle, others are even performing worse. And on top of that, big questions remain unanswered:

  • How to get the most out of such a transformation?
  • Can we still improve our governance?
  • How to implement lasting behavioral changes?

How do we help you, concretely?

  • Portfolio Management

    Portfolio Management

    Balance your project load with the business-as-usual to reach strategic objectives. 

    When every department has its own agenda and is fighting for key resources, project prioritization becomes a key success factor. We help you to implement a proper portfolio management methodology to select, prioritize and monitor your programs and projects. All of that, in line with your strategic objectives and capacity to deliver. 

    Our end goal for you? To balance the implementation of change initiatives and the maintenance of business-as­-usual, while optimizing return on investment.

    Each client has its own specificities. That’s why we stand against copy / pasting methods and always investigate through careful listening of key stakeholders. We strive to understand your needs, as it is the first step to design a customized solution and implement it with you from end to end. 

    We developed our own flexible assessment audit & solution to define which processes need to be put in place (and how):

    1. Interview with key stakeholders to collect the data, map ASIS situation & check the maturity. 
    2. We co-create together the TOBE situation you wish to go to and focus on the journey to evolve your governance. 
    3. We use a light & adaptable prototype to test and improve with users.
    4. Only then do we investigate switching to market standard solutions (ex: planview, servicenow, project online, clarity).

  • Agile Operating Model

    Agile Operating Model

    Shape your team’s behaviors and reach agility. 

    We don’t replace your current way of working, nor do we sell you a magic turnkey solution (we don’t believe in them). Instead, we help you to adapt to the agile framework you put in place and make you succeed in it.  How? By working on behavioral change of people, we make results seamlessly click-in with your way of working. 

    We don’t require extra meetings, motivational sessions or posters. Rather, we prefer to have intervene on the job.

    To kickstart your journey toward true agility, we facilitate few experiential workshops with your team(s). The insight we get will be the basis to build an organizational prototype and implement it following our 4-step behavioral change model: 

     

    Level 1 – Experiencing behavior 

    • Confirm your way of working and planning approach  
    • Understanding the counterintuitive dynamics of “How work works” 
    • Recognize your frictions 

     

    Level 2 – Implementing behavior 

    • Collect and understand your delivery data,  
    • improve by finishing instead of starting 
    • Use already visible improvements to shape your planning and behavior 

     

    Level 3 – Predictable behavior 

    • Gain strong understanding of your delivery data,
    • Improve by Work in Progress and Capacity Utilization 
    • Establish predictability by data-driven planning and behavior 

     

    Level 4 – Sustainable behavior 

    • Contribute to and shape business value  
    • Manage Demand and Supply 
    • Master Deferred Commitment

  • Demand & Capacity Management

    Demand & Capacity Management

    Gain management’s trust & save costs by visualizing your capacity

    Do you have an objective Demand Management process in place to define when your ideas can turn into projects?

    Do you have the right profiles & enough resources, available at the right time to deliver these projects?

    Capacity management optimizes the use of the right resources at the right time to align with the real and expected demand for a specific project or for the full Project Portfolio.

    This way, you can forecast your resources, identify critical dependencies, or know which extra FTEs you can reallocate. All that, from a single glance at a dashboard.

  • Budget Management

    Budget Management

    Identify cash problems before they occur

    In practice, budget management is the process of preparing, monitoring, and tracking income and expenses. But at Steep, we like to look beyond that. We structure with you your financial analysis, and forecasting processes that support your investment decisions and make sure the expansion of your business is on the right track.
