The strategic innovation project for launching a telematic service product by a leading German insurance company was initiated with significant planning and investment. Despite consuming the majority of its budget and two-thirds of its allotted time, the project had not progressed towards a go-live stage. Consequently, the senior management made a decisive move to appoint an external senior program manager. This appointment aimed to conduct a thorough program review, establish mitigating strategies, revamp the program plan and governance, and assume leadership of the project.
Our team successfully assumed the program leadership, refined the product and technical solutions, and achieved a turnaround within the first three months. We ensured a successful go-live by developing and executing a revised and realistic overall plan, encompassing budget, timeline, and resource management.
