Enhancing the performance of a UK electricity network through a five-year transformation programme
UK Power Networks is the UK’s largest electricity distribution business, supplying power to more than 18 million customers across London and the east and south east of England.
In April 2013, UK Power Networks embarked on a five-year journey to transform its entire business, focusing on improving data quality and governance, enhancing operational performance, reducing costs and delivering superior asset planning.
Enzen was chosen as UK Power Networks’ partner for the Business Transformation Programme (BTP). Their objectives were to achieve the highest regulatory standards, optimise business processes, achieve better customer service and deliver operational excellence for UK Power Networks by 2019. This would ultimately provide power consumers in the UK Power Networks region a better value, more reliable and higher quality service.
The BTP was a hugely ambitious transformation programme. In total, it meant transforming eight end-to-end processes and defining a common way to programme, deliver and close work across all of them, engaging more than 6,000 people across more than 40 locations, delivering more than 150,000 hours of training, rolling out 3,500 mobile devices, optimising more than 180 legacy systems to more than 50 inter-connected systems and migrating more than 300 million asset records into SAP.
To deliver the programme, Enzen applied its Zen Business Transformation Framework, a holistic, customised solution specifically designed to achieve positive, sustainable change for large utility organisations.
The holistic solution works across five different layers of an organisation: ie. the business process layer, the organisation layer, the people and culture layer, the data layer and the technology layer.
Across these layers, the framework applies specific solutions to achieve the target business outcomes, while recognising the interconnectedness of each solution across the layers. At the same time, the unique challenges of the UK Power Networks environment were accounted for in the solution.
UK Power Networks and Enzen achieved the following outcomes during the course of the BTP:
Since 2013, the business performance of UK Power Networks has increased across multiple areas, delivering tangible benefits to its customers, employees and shareholders. Analysis showed that during the course of the BTP, UK Power Networks achieved:
