U-Collaborate is KPMG’s facilitation approach that differs from traditional client-facing workshops in three main dimensions:
(1) Need to make critical decisions to advance the work
(2) Scale (25 or more participants)
(3) Complexity (addressing mission-critical business issues that span geographies, business functions or lines of business)
U-Collaborate, which is embedded within a KPMG engagement, can help you tackle critical business issues such as creating a new target operating model or defining a new business process, through a facilitation approach that is a powerful enabler of alignment and decision making.
After a rigorous planning and preparation process, U-Collaborate gathers the right people together (usually off-site for two to three days) and provides them with the focus, facts and facilitation required to rapidly make decisions and significantly advance a strategic initiative. For example, U-Collaborate events enable diverse stakeholders to define the problem, rapidly learn and review/iterative solution prototypes and create actionable implementation plans. KPMG subject matter experts are present as appropriate and help to contribute to the facilitated discussions.
Our U-Collaborate methodology can help you accelerate development of key project deliverables by promoting alignment and streamlining decision making. U-Collaborate helps avoid problems or delays that often arise in project environments due to communication gaps, reducing - or eliminating - the need for rework.
