About Tony

I have an extensive track record in understanding how organisations function and applying appropriate improvement approaches that deliver results, combined with experience in systems thinking, and an extensive background in process re-engineering, measurement, quality and transformation. This experience has been gained in a variety of environments; UK-focused and globally, involving significant changes to how people work.
I am trained and experienced in applying Consulting, Process Engineering, Systems Thinking, Management Cybernetics, Lean-Sigma, and Knowledge Management approaches. This is combined with practical application of technology and strategy, proficiency with analytical tools and operations design/modelling.
  

Current Role Details

I am currently studying for a Postgraduate Diploma in Systems Thinking with the OU.
My previous role from Apr’13 to Oct’18 was as Service Improvement and Process Architect at BT Global Services. I led on ITIL Service Management processes, including design and architecture, stakeholder engagement and RACI modelling, as well as user requirements for application developments. I led the Service Introduction team; working with Product and Project Managers and Designers, to develop, test and launch new services; assuring processes, operating model and measurements.
I provided facilitation and project support for operating model design, supply chain re-engineering, and cybernetic modelling.
  

Tony's Valuable Contributions

(Case Studies)

RESOLVING A LONG-STANDING SUPPLY CHAIN SITUATION (Reveal More  OR   View Full Page)


Situation
I was asked to intervene in a very long-standing supply chain problem, with a key equipment supplier to a business unit, where there were organisational, process and IT-related issues. There had been several attempts to resolve these using standard approaches such as process management or 6-sigma, but none had succeeded.

Task
I was asked first to investigate the situation, and to recommend possible options for resolution of the difficulties, including defining benefits of short through to long-term improvements.

Action
I investigated the situation and identified key issues with supply chain processes, Electronic Data Interchange systems, working collaboratively with operational teams and the equipment sourcing and staging suppliers. I created a systemic change programme, and model of the situation and relevant organisational systems, as well as recommending appropriate changes. Finally I worked with operational managers and technical delivery leads, as well as the supplier, in a programme management role, to help co-ordinate the delivery of business process, IT and operating model changes, as well as benefits realisation and business case scrutiny.

Results
We made operational and process changes quickly, although IT improvements, involving multiple parties, took longer (too long in my view). The improvements recommended were rolled out into a pilot product area, and then extended into additional countries and portfolio areas, eventually becoming part of the strategic solution for supply chain integration with core delivery applications and processes.

Situation
A long-standing supply chain problem was present with a key equipment supplier, where there were organisational, process and IT-related issues. Several unsuccessful attempts to resolve these had been made using approaches such as process management or 6-sigma.

Task
To investigate the situation and recommend possible options for resolution of the difficulties, including defining benefits of short through to long-term improvements.

Action
Working collaboratively with operational teams and the equipment sourcing and staging suppliers, we investigated the situation and identified key issues with supply chain processes and Electronic Data Interchange systems. A model of the situation and relevant organisational systems was created along with a systemic change programme, in addition to providing recommendations for appropriate changes. Also, working with operational managers, technical delivery leads and the suppliers, support was provided through coordinating the delivery of business process and IT and Operating model improvements in addition to providing documented clarity on benefits realisation.

Results
Rapid operational and process changes were made, with IT improvements involving multiple parties. Improvement recommendations were rolled out into a pilot product area and then extended to additional countries and portfolio areas, becoming part of the strategic solution for supply chain integration with core delivery applications and processes.

- Optimised service efficiency and effectiveness
- Improved cross-business collaboration, service delivery and asses utilisation
