Tackle complexity. Stay relevant

Most organisations achieve better outcomes from the efforts of multidisciplinary teams – energised, diverse groups of people with a broad background. They tackle the tough problems with creativity, passion and at pace. That’s why we bring together teams of analysts, technicians, business leaders and curious minds to offer solutions to the most complex challenges. Solutions that ensure you stay relevant in the Digital Age.

We can help you build the right digital service DNA throughout your organisation and create the conditions for a focused, fast-paced, user-centric delivery culture. We believe that delivery is the best way to discover and refine your digital business strategy. Here’s how our Digital Advisory team can help you:

  • Help your senior leadership team to resolve the key blockers and accelerate business-wide digital transformation
  • Challenge your organisation to rethink its governance and operating model so leadership and bravery become the norm
  • Support your service and product teams to focus on delivery with an obsession for meeting the needs of real users
  • Guide your business operations' functions to efficiently support the organisation's evolving digital culture

We draw on the following techniques to guide you: 
Design principle workshops, capability acceleration, portfolio reviews, governance design, holistic roadmaps, organisation co-design and cultural API definition.

A solution to key scenarios

Digital Leaders Network NZ

As Corporate Partner in the launch year of the Digital Leaders Network NZ (DLNZ), Assurity is an integral part of the bid to help leaders in New Zealand’s public and private sectors create sustainable digital transformation.

Meeting the demands and expectations of ongoing digital transformation is now a core function of efficient and effective government, industry and civil society. We recognise the importance of developing an overarching, cross-sector, strategic vision for digital transformation, drawing upon the rich spectrum of expertise, experiences and perspectives from all sectors. The DLNZ programme is specifically designed to enable senior decision makers across all sectors to engage with the strategic implications of digital technologies in the context of future policy-making and innovative service delivery.

DLNZ’s first significant event saw Peter Dunne, the NZ Minister for Internal Affairs delivering the annual lecture for DLN UK in Westminster in February last year. For future events, follow DLNZ on Twitter.

Making innovation central to the new normal

Written by Ben Hayman

With Innovation sounding like a great idea, we’d all support it within our organisations. Staff want to know they’re supported in being creative and looking for innovative ways forward. It’s a no-brainer in many ways, but to create the conditions for innovation to become part of the new ‘business as usual’ takes framing and sponsorship.

We see patterns of adoption of innovation methods that create real change. We also see anti-patterns where innovation is a spike of excitement and activity and brings little ongoing change. More

Organisations that deliver excellent digital services have generally achieved a high degree of business Responsiveness that enables them to turn on a dime. They also truly understand the Relevance of their current offering for its audience, while also being able to Innovate to imagine a future state and disrupt their business model before their competitors.

Responsiveness runs deepSome organisations are born digital and find these three aspects a natural state of being. For other pre-digital organisations, they’re likely to need to undertake some level of transformation to get there. In either case, responsiveness is a fundamental enabling part of the picture. More
