Driving transformational process change

The challenge facing 6DG – a managed telecoms service providers – was two-fold. First how to differentiate its service and the customer experience from the competition, and second how following multiple acquisitions to mesh existing products, systems, processes and organisational structures into one cohesive unit.

Piran Partners has facilitated the change management programme: identifying current and future end-state customer journey, provisioning and support models; identifying KPIs and the data required to deliver these, and; defining appropriate organisation structures and roles to drive a customer, rather than product, focus.

Assessing the impact of quad-play and market moves by BT

The advent of quad-play, new spectrum owners and aggressive moves into television and sports rights by traditional fixed line players is changing the competitive landscape. Our client asked Piran Partners to undertake a review of the market, the likely impact on their current triple play economics and potential strategic responses.
