Graham Kennedy is a senior strategy and transformation professional who helps large organisations work out what to do with digital and information technologies. He developed his expertise while working with Accenture and A.T. Kearney.
He transforms the value that organisations derive from their investment in and expenditure on digital and information technologies. He help organisations deliver valuable business outcomes and benefits from this expenditure predictably, quickly and at lower cost. For example, as a result of one engagement, the Department for Work and Pensions reduced its annual expenditure on IT by 25%, or £200m per year, while improving the quality of IT services that were delivered. On another engagement he delivered the desired outcomes from a £165m investment in IT for a financial services client on time and £35m under budget.
Graham works with his clients to assess their significant digital and information related problems or opportunities and then conceives solutions to address these problems or opportunities. He then typically persuades his clients to introduce these solutions and helps them deliver the expected outcomes or benefits from investing in the solutions. He is an accomplished facilitator, and chair of the Institute of Consulting London & SE Network.
