Your Transformation/Digital Acceleration Project Must Start With the End in Mind

Authored by – Ryan Cox, Senior Director – Technology, London, UK

The team was four weeks into the program, and work had already begun. Like many agile programs, months of analysis feeding into waterfall charts had been replaced with a product owner and an initial product backlog. The team was two sprints in and feet were on the gas pedal. But, there was a subtle feeling that we were still missing something…maybe aligned to the bigger picture. What were we seeking to accomplish again?

It may seem counterintuitive, but our practical knowledge has shown that the best place to start a project is from the end. Your programme to transform your company’s technology systems or accelerate your digital transformation journey must commence with a clear view of what a successful outcome looks like. Many will envision delivery as the final step in the plan and not the starting gate, but we have learned at Synechron, from years of practical experience, that delivery is the best place to begin your journey.
