It is not uncommon for organisations to leap into new technology adoption, solution development and innovation activities without understanding why they are doing it (being the 'Amazon or Uber of...' does not count as a valid strategic reason). This often leads to failed programs and wasted resources at great cost to the business. We don't want our clients to fall into this trap.
Understanding 'the why', 'the what' and 'the how' before you commit to change.
Data, Tech & Innovation Strategy
Typically each has its own individual strategy talking about reducing silos and barriers etc - but they are completely interconnected - so why silo the strategies and create more silos you just strategised about removing?

“We were supposed to talk about innovation and how it can magically solve all of our problems.
In reality… innovation is hard. It’s painful. And it’s costly – much like today’s railway! What we’ve learned over the last year is that technology isn’t the difficult part. It’s already out there, ready, waiting to be exploited. But what has been stopping it from being implemented? What is this seemingly insurmountable barrier that has stopped smart ticketing again and again? What is this unbreakable wall we have been facing when trying to prevent trains from being delayed? Just what is it that is preventing our railway from delivering a great experience?
That is why we decided to write this report. We wanted to pull the barriers out from the hole they are hiding in, for the entire world to see.
It is time we overcome and break them. Our children cannot go through the same crush today’s commuters go through every morning. Our families cannot have their holiday travels ruined by unexpected laterunning services. As rail professionals, we owe it to every passenger to not let this go on any longer.
Some of what you will read in this report will be painfully obvious, but a lot of it probably won’t. Some of the recommendations we’ve made will feel comfortable and safe to implement. But a lot of them may have you questioning whether we have our heads screwed on straight.
This report may bring joy. It may bring fear,but let us embrace whatever it brings.
For it is about opening up a discussion and creating a new movement – an important one that could very well be the turning point for our railway.
We hope you enjoy reading this report. It was certainly a lot of fun writing it!”
