HAPPENS Fighting with change... J. du Preez The approach that was followed to achieve the objective of this study consisted of the following four activities: Developing an enterprise engineering process that a commercial organisation of any size can use to successfully transform itself Conducting a case study in order to validate the process from a practical perspective In such a dynamic environment an organisation’s future profitability and growth relies heavily on its ability to continuously, effectively and efficiently transform/re-engineer itself (Hammer & Champy, 2001) The problem however is that 70% of the change initiatives that are launched by organisations fail to deliver the benefits they were intended to provide (Blanchard, 2010) Why are only 30% of change initiatives successful? Question: Organisations launch the WRONG KINDS OF CHANGE INITIATIVES given the type of situation they are in and/or they INEFFECTIVELY MANAGE AND EXECUTE the change initiatives they decide to launch Answer: Research approach... Research Objective How to execute
the process Persons involved
in the process Research
validation 1 2 3 4 Reviewing literature related to enterprise engineering in order to identify the process steps and determine their sequence Researching the various methods, tools and techniques that can be used when performing each step (How & Who) Interviewing experts in the field of enterprise engineering in order to validate the technical correctness of the process Step 2: Step 3: Process step identification
& justification Step 4: Project

regulations External
analysis Conducting an external environment analysis & a competitive analysis Competitive analysis For example:
- Newly implemented legislation & regulations
- Changes to current legislation & regulations
- Existing legislative & regulatory gaps For example:
- Economic climate (inflation-, exchange-, interest- and economic growth rates)
- Economic trends (globalisation)
- State of public infrastructure and services For example:
- Health issues
- Population skill & education levels
- Demographics
- Changes regarding societal tastes & values
- Cultural, labour and lifestyle trends For example:
- Existing disruptive or beneficial technologies
- New/emerging disruptive or beneficial technologies For example:
- Trends within the industry
- Demand vs. supply within the industry Strategy formulation Priority Future impact on profit margin Strategic position delection based around one or maximum two of three generic strategic positions: 1: Low cost leadership 3: Value proposition innovation 2: Customer intimacy - are achievable
- are measurable (yardstick)
- have an allocated timeframe
- are aligned with its desired
strategic position Business model design - Identify the business processes that are currently not performed

- Identify the business processes that are currently performed

- Identify the business processes that are currently performed, but are
ineffective and/or misaligned with the strategy

- Identify the business processes that are currently performed and are
effective and aligned with the strategy Organisation structure design Performance measurement system design - Management team External environment analysis: - Management team - Line functions - Marketing team - Sales team - Product development

- Deciding when to initiate each of the projects

- Identifying & resolving dependencies and overlaps between projects

- Halting or cancelling projects if required

- Changing the scope of the projects if required

- Monitoring the overall performance of the projects - aim of the project

- benefits to be obtained from successfully executing the project

- deliverables to be generated by the project

- each deliverable’s resource requirements, estimated cost, planned start & end dates
& acceptance criteria

- stakeholders involved, their roles and their contact details - List of tasks that need to be performed in order to successfully execute the project

- The expected start and end dates of each of these tasks

- Dependencies between the tasks

- Resources responsible for the execution of each of the tasks - Anticipating events that will have a negative impact on the success of a project if
they were to take place

- Describing each of these events

- Determining which of a project’s deliverables could be impacted by each of the

- Describing the impact that each of the events could have on a project’s deliverables

- Rating each of the events in terms of their likelihood of occurrence and impact

- Responding to these events by implementing mitigating controls The enterprise engineering process must be technically sound and based on the correct theoretical principles!

Part of this study was therefore validating whether or not this is the case

This was done by conducting interviews with the following five enterprise engineering experts:
- Expert 1: CEO of an enterprise engineering consulting firm
- Expert 2: Lead enterprise architect at a multinational manufacturing organisation
- Expert 3: Strategy manager of a division within a ultinational manufacturing organisation
- Expert 4: Enterprise engineering consultant
- Expert 5: Enterprise engineering consultant The enterprise engineering process must be practical!

Part of this study was therefore validating the enterprise engineering process from a practical perspective

A case study was conducted at an organisation that supplies paper based packaging products to the retail and industrial markets within South Africa Most organisations currently in existence operate in an environment that is very dynamic

The only way that an organisation can thrive is by continuously re-engineering itself

The majority of organisations however struggle to do this

This study delivers a solution to this problem in the form of an enterprise engineering process

In other words, this study provides organisations with the ability to fight change the only way that is effective: WITH CHANGE! Conclusion Offerings &
