One Operations delivers data-driven, AI-augmented operations, digitally transforming and unifying an organization’s target operating model to help realize strategic objectives at speed and scale.

In my previous article , we considered how One Operations helps global businesses to recalibrate their business models and successfully face challenges in the VUCA world – including how to stay competitive and to deliver greater value for shareholders, improve customer experience, and enhance performance.

In this article, we are going to look closely at the One Operations model and its benefits.

Integrating business processes to drive customer focus

One Operations is a new breed of transformation, helping to transform your organization to sustain profitable growth. It does this by reducing operational complexity and integrating processes from sales to delivery and from strategy to execution.

The comprehensive, intelligent, and seamless view that emerges gives the business more agility and responsiveness, with orchestrated data delivering greater business intelligence, and improved decision-making.

The result of this transformation introduces a new way of working empowering team members to focus on the activities that not only drive growth but also improve user skills and experience.

These activities are supplemented using digital tools and data insights to reduce friction for the customer in an omnichannel model supporting insights and predictive technology that knows what is next for the organization’s customers and teams.

Creating value and growth

Core to One Operations is the ability to unlock value and growth.

This includes removing sources of friction and integrating processes end-to-end and across domains such as sales, supply chain and finance functions, improving working capital and competitive cost base in the business pipeline.

Another way of unlocking value and growth is by aggregating data across the ecosystem, enhancing its quality, and introducing powerful new ways to analyze it, that creates new opportunities to improve margins.

This results in forecasts accuracy increase, improved order fill rates and reduced sales days outstanding. These values can be supported by artificial intelligence and machine learning enabling more accurate and faster decision-making.

Management benefits

It is not just about measurable benefits, though. It is also about a general sense of better financial and operational control.
