SEE THE DIFFERENCE WITH ADVANCEMENT STRATEGY.

We talk the talk and walk the walk.

Advancement Strategy is a specialized Management and Information Technology consulting firm providing tangible solutions to today's business and Information Technology challenges. Our experts combine cutting-edge ideas with industry-standard processes to imagine and implement transformative strategies for your organization.

CHALLENGE:

Improve and assess existing web portals and capabilities, increasing functionality and ease of use for students, employees, faculty, and the public.


SOLUTION: Portal Development & Training

We re-engineered, redesigned, and developed all existing content into public and internal user portals, and provided all portal capability training across the university.

These changes resulted in an 80% decrease in calls to the University Help Desk and a 220% increase in user satisfaction scores.

 

CHALLENGE:

Update and align the company’s existing 5-year IT Strategy to a newly developed business strategy.


SOLUTION: IT Strategy & Savings Opportunities

We analyzed the existing software licensing contracts, project portfolios and timelines, to identify potential opportunities to reduce licensing spend.

After an assessment, we developed an integrated 3-year IT Strategy & Roadmap ready for implementation. This resulted in rationalizing multiple software platforms by aligning each one to clearly defined enterprise business processes. 

CHALLENGE:

Improve the company’s IT investment, management, delivery, and execution against their multi-year portfolio and annual new demand pipeline of global programs and projects.


SOLUTION: ePMO 1.0

We developed a new centralized, globally aligned capability and guided the client through its launch and operationalization.

This client experienced an 18% savings on a $3.3B project portfolio after implementing our recommendation.

CHALLENGE:

Reduce legacy support cost and IT risk exposure while rapidly improving IT capacity and business capability.


SOLUTION: Global BPO & IT Strategic Sourcing 

We evaluated the company’s Business and IT organizational delivery capability against industry best practices and developed a strategic insource and outsourcing plan.

The organization reduced business costs by 25% in 2 years and IT costs by 40% over 3 years after applying our recommended strategy and approach.

CHALLENGE:

Consolidate costs, improve ROI, and increase staff retention rates by evaluating current business practices and contracts to identify competitive advantages compared to market and industry standards.


SOLUTION: Business Operating Strategy 

SMEs within our Advisory Practices determined the most profitable service lines, products, and market centers by evaluating over 9,000 contracts and over 10,000,000 contract line items. The team identified an approximately $30B market opportunity after determining that less than 10% of the market was being serviced in one of their most profitable segments.

By solidifying and defining the client’s competitive advantages, we prioritized the most effective factors to use to increase sales and win more business. These factors informed our recommendations as to where they should invest their time.

CHALLENGE:

Increase speed-to-market for global supply delivery chain and decrease a backlog of change requests to existing production operations.


SOLUTION: Software Engineering

We increased the capacity of software design, development, and deployment of new scripts, integrations, and configurations by using Agile Kanban methods, performed solution testing, QA/QC, and provided end-user support to production releases.

User satisfaction scores increased by 24.5%, the IT request backlog reduced by 32%, and the sprint delivery cycle significantly improved after implementation.

CHALLENGE:

Reduce new development demand for customized data analytics and reporting by adapting and re-utilizing software assets.


SOLUTION: Change Management & Adoption

We completed a Global Change Management Strategy to consolidate and integrate IT Finance, PMO, and BIG Data tools, processes, and organizations into an Enterprise Governance model. Our change management experts integrated multiple PMO units into an ePMO function by successfully creating and executing a universal OCM strategy.

The quality of the data analytics solution delivery and decision support platforms improved by 36%.
