Business Performance

Organisations make big investments to sustain, build or transform their business.  These investments, when managed well, can deliver significant value.  Conversely, when they are managed poorly they can lead to a significant waste of resources.  Even when an investment appears on track to achieve its targeted returns, there are often substantial opportunities to improve its efficiency.

Driving the full business value from investments requires ongoing value modelling and analysis combined with robust management and governance frameworks, which provides the organisational discipline to deliver consistent, optimal results.

Litmus has developed methodologies to manage the end-to-end strategic investments lifecycle and to greatly improve the likelihood, magnitude and efficiency of the realised returns.  These methodologies have proven to be successful in realising multi-million dollar savings across various industries. 

Our Business Performance Services

Business Performance measurement and KPI reporting

Improving business effectiveness and performance requires the right information to get to the right decision makers.  Litmus’ skills and experiences enable us to identify the measures that drive performance and to construct fit-for-purpose reporting that give executives insight and foresight to improve decisions.

Our typical scope includes defining and populating strategic objectives, business benefits, critical success factors, key result areas, key performance indicators, score carding and operation performance measures.

Business effectiveness and performance improvement

Once the right information is available, Litmus supports executives in designing initiatives to improve operational metrics and deliver business benefits.  This includes optimising the portfolio by:

  • Determining which projects are really needed by business units.
  • Identifying projects that can be removed to release funds.
  • Achieving efficient delivery and reducing costs without affecting essential project scope or quality.
  • Balancing benefits and their delivery against the total use of resources across the business.

Benefits management and realisation

Finally, once identified, the benefits must be effectively managed through the investment lifecycle to realisation using a robust, repeatable framework.  This framework must include regular reviews to identify new and emerging opportunities for improvement that will maximise overall value.
