Value Assurance Framework

Value Assurance Framework – Key enabler of the Applexus Approach to Digital Transformation

One of the main enablers of our approach is Value Assurance Framework which helps our clients realize expected business value from their transformation initiatives.

Value Assurance Framework (VAF) is split into three different phases, namely Discover, Design and Monitor and each phase will enable you to derive the best value from the project. Organizations need to ensure they go through with each of these phases. This helps them stay agile, scale the program, adjust to any disruptions, and change course to maximize value when needed.

  • Discovery Phase – The objective of this phase is to tap into areas that will result in values. This exercise reveals the regions that will create value for the business unit. Here you would need to focus on objectives, business case, key value drivers, and what needs to go or be replaced to bring about concrete transformative value.
  • Design Phase – The design phase ensures your solutions are tied to the key value drivers – they revolve around the benefits you hope to extract from the investment. In this phase, you’d ensure that the solution is value focused and take measures to embed the value within the business strategy.
  • Monitor phase – Once the digital initiative is deployed you need to start finding ways to measure the realization of value from it. Monitor the initiative to see if it bears fruits in accordance with your expectations. To pull this off, organizations need to start capturing, measuring, and reporting the bare minimum and maximum values they get from the project.
