Enterprise-wide transformation

Helping clients redefine their portfolio, business and operating model: transforming where they play and how they win.

In today’s dynamic market, organizations must be willing to transform or risk irrelevance. Enterprise-wide transformation is driven by external triggers such as disruptive forces impacting financial, business and operating models; or internal motivations such as driving synergies and efficiencies within and between business units and aligning stakeholder interests.

Transformation is not about incremental change - it requires fundamental shifts in an organization’s value proposition, how they compete and their core operations. KPMG Strategy helps organizations determine whether or not and to what extent transformation is genuinely required. The answer may be to innovate, refresh or accelerate along the company’s existing trajectory. However, it may instead require a step change or pivot in direction, which is where enterprise-wide transformation comes into its own.


Bringing strategic thinking and the hands-on skillsets to deliver on transformation, KPMG Strategy is distinctive in its ability to enact, rather than merely design or plan for enterprise-wide change. We help organizations address the following questions in designing, planning and implementing their enterprise-wide transformations:


  • How to refresh or shift the company’s strategy, given recent changes in the market dynamics?
  • How to improve internal/external perception of the business and alignment between the ambition, business and operating models?
  • How to manage the portfolio and improve the role of the corporate center?
  • What are the intended and unintended consequences to the wider whole of decisions in each unit or in one part of the business or operating model?
  • How strong is the company’s readiness to execute transformation and what challenges likely await on that journey?

Our approach to enterprise-wide transformation aligns organizations internally.  We map the journey from where clients need to be, from where they are today, and outline what the path and timeframe for that journey to be realized.  We provide the overarching framework for multi-year strategic planning, capital allocation, portfolio and synergy assessments, scenario planning, corporate center redesigns, and other modularized enterprise-wide services.
