The winners’ secret: collaboration for transformation


The Great Britain rower Steve Redgrave is the only person to have won gold medals at five consecutive Olympic Games in an endurance sport. While his partners and team-mates changed – the medals include golds in coxed fours, coxless pairs and coxless fours – his consistency provided the continuity to enable him to claim a unique place in sporting history.

Successful teamwork is all about consistency and continuity. In our experience, many companies called upon to be team orchestrators underestimate both the risk and the complexities of transition. As Worldwide IT Partner and lead integrator of the past 7 Olympic Games we have learned a thing or two. When it comes to providing an effective Service Integration and Application Management (SIAM) engagement over time, continuity makes all the difference. We believe that better supplier management is an often overlooked element in providing operational excellence. SIAM is focused on driving costs down, getting more from the supply chain, and driving innovation. But above all, it’s about enriching the customer experience.

If you need to partner with a company with a wealth of experience in managing complex change and transformation in a multi-supplier environment, contact us now.
