NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, May 18, 2021 / -- AEGIS Advisory Partners, LLC (AEGIS), a Strategy and Management Consulting firm, announces the release of the 3rd installment of their Target Operating Model trilogy - “Target Operating Model: Delivering on the Promise.”

The Target Operating Model (TOM) trilogy shares the AEGIS team insights and experience advising clients on how to plan, approach, develop and deliver successful Finance Modernization programs.

“When a company decides to pursue a strategic vision to shift a Finance organization from stewardship functions to an enabler of strategic business insights, people and expertise are at the heart of a successful execution. At our company, we were confident we had the right internal resources in place, however, we needed external expertise to help us see opportunities and enhance our future vision.

I have worked with the partners of AEGIS over the years, and I was certain these are the partners to enhance our team to identify these opportunities. As they have done so many times before, their execution and results were invaluable.”

The Target Operating Model (TOM) Trilogy

In the first installment, “Target Operating Model: The Foundational Framework,” published in February 2021, AEGIS defined the ten (10) Operating Model components (as seen in Exhibit 1). They describe how they are used as a modernization journey starting point. It points out the importance of understanding the knock-on impacts across the TOM components and building those dependencies into your modernization plans.

The second paper “Target Operating Model: The Modernization Journey,” which was published in March 2021, explored the approach and the considerations for successful Target Operating Model improvement.

AEGIS noted that the CFO modernization effort will be founded on changing the Finance “ways of working.” The Modernization Paradigm indicated Finance improvement efforts are typically targeted at reducing costs, improving quality, developing / enhancing business insights, and maintaining a vigorous control environment.

The “TOM Modernization Journey” provides the framework to gauge the trade-offs and establish a basis for determining the path forward. Note that it is essential to have a disciplined priority resolution approach when setting the Finance modernization direction.

In this third instalment of the Target Operating Model trilogy: “Delivering on the Promise,” AEGIS examines the AEGIS Finance Maturity Model; expected Macro Results of a Modernization Program; and the “Art of the Possible” relative to specific TOM component improvements.

The latest research indicates that despite the multitude of challenges faced by the global economy in 2020, including COVID-19, CFOs are highly optimistic about the future. They are ready to capitalize on an economy that appears to be on the precipice of unprecedented growth. This growth is expected to fuel investment in modernizing finance teams to keep pace with the competition.

Finance organizations need to adapt to meet the demands of a post-pandemic environment by investing in their operating model’s modernization initiatives. CFOs must deliver on a promise of a modernized Finance function as a critical strategic necessity. The role they can play in helping transform the future of their business is now more important than ever before. The Target Operating Model is the vehicle that can help them achieve their mission.
