What opportunities for change are available and am I ready?

The strategy is in place and you are considering approaching the market to explore the possibility of selecting a services partner to support your business. To guide you on this journey Burnt Oak Partners has developed the definitive differentiated managed services transaction support suite of services that maximises speed and minimises risk.

You want to get a true picture of the opportunities available to your enterprise but you have no direct access to real market data or trusted support on which to make an informed assessment?  How do you know if your organisation is ready for outsourcing and what is the best approach to testing organisational readiness?

Burnt Oak Partners can help you through the outsourcing maze with its Feasibility Assessment service: a rapid, low-cost method for assessing the most appropriate options for your organisation, providing a reliable case for change based on real requirements and data; Service Provider solution and pricing, with full independent validation and no recourse to third-party data-sets and impenetrable normalisation.

Feasibility Assessment Services (Deal Diligence 1)

The challenge for organisations is to produce a sustainable case for change with high level of confidence (>95% is usual) and to assess the feasibility of Executive initiatives in a timely fashion (under 8 weeks). Burnt Oak Partners recognises that the quality and application of market data and rigid template-based approaches offered in the market offer limited levels of confidence for establishing the true business case for change whilst remaining time-consuming and expensive. Key industry measures and peer-group comparison metrics remain generic whilst internal opportunity analysis activities, though potentially inexpensive, provide lowest levels of confidence.

Burnt Oak Partners delivers a robust and sustainable case for change delivered based on proper and proven commercial, financial and operational due diligence (rather than fact finding/data-gathering templates and best efforts estimations).

Benefits of the Burnt Oak Partners Feasibility Assessment are as follows:

  • Our deployment limits risk of rumours and leaks
  • Our business case includes impact of avoiding Capital expenditure; using cheaper finance options; true capability and maturity of service provider service towers; practitioner view on approaches
  • Pricing is current, specific and enforceable
  • The whole process is auditable and accountable
  • Multiple commercial options depending on level of secrecy and perceived independence required
