KCA Deutag Challenge
Due to the downturn in the Oil sector, KCAD had been operating their IT under strict financial constraints. With increasing pressure on IT to deliver, Resulting were asked to review the IT applications team and their effectiveness.
Resulting carried out a short assignment to review the delivery of the applications team from a BAU and project perspective. This included interviewing senior stakeholders and providing recommendations on changes to the CoE operating model and ways of working. A number of key gaps and recommendations was made to enhance the quality and timeliness of IT delivery.
- KCAD restructured their IT function to provide greater clarity on roles and responsibilities based on Resulting advisory.
- Resulting provided interim leadership of Applications Delivery to implement an improvement plan and transition to a long-term successor.
- Resulting provided coaching to KCAD team members to drive self-sufficiency in the SAP delivery team.
- The client is benefitting from faster and greater certainty of delivery of both BAU and IT application projects.
