Bridging the Value Gap: Value Bridge for Digital Transformation

Organizations worldwide are undertaking ambitious digital transformation and innovation initiatives in today’s dynamic business environment to withstand continuous disruptions and propel sustainable growth. However, the reality that most of these organizations grapple with is a glaring value gap; they struggle to unlock the potential value from their transformational efforts fully.

This blog post addresses the value gap in digital transformation and introduces the concept of Value Bridge. As a strategic offering from McKinsey, powered by SAP Signavio, Value Bridge aligns strategy, operating model, processes, data, and technology for continuous value delivery. The comprehensive approach of Value Bridge drives successful transformations by enabling organizations to realize their full potential while navigating the complexities of rapid technological advancements.

According to McKinsey research, nearly 70% of large-scale transformations are delayed and fail to meet expected benefits. This challenge is further accentuated by rapid technological advancements – generative AI, quantum computing, blockchain, to name a few. These technologies, while offering immense potential, present their complexities. Extracting maximum value from them requires careful guidance to prevent missed opportunities and increased vulnerability in a competitive landscape.

How can organizations bridge this value gap?

The answer lies in a paradigm shift in how we perceive value – not as an isolated, one-time outcome but as a continuous result embedded within the business operating model. This involves harmonizing strategy, operating model, processes, data, and technology with the ever-evolving business environment. Enter Value Bridge – a comprehensive offering from McKinsey, powered by SAP Signavio, designed to empower organizations to drive continuous value throughout their transformation journey.

It’s time to bridge the value gap and drive continuous value for your organization’s digital transformation journey.
