Read this article about McDonald's Corporation, Finalist in the Best Achievement in Operational Excellence to deliver Digital Transformation, selected by the independent judging panel, for the 2020 Business Transformation & Operational Excellence Industry Awards program.
During the March 2017 Velocity Growth Investor Event everyone in the industry took notice when McDonald’s publicly committed to our investors that it would deploy Mobile Order and Pay to over 20,000 restaurants by the end of year. Suddenly, McDonald’s was changing the narrative, with headlines highlighting our customer focus, ambition and strategic moves outlined in our Velocity Growth Plan. To support accomplishing this strategic initiative, McDonald’s established the Global Technology PMO (GTPMO). Reporting to Daniel Henry, Executive Vice President and Global Technology Chief Information Officer, the team quickly operationalized and immediately set out establishing PMO processes, standards and a governance framework to prioritize and operationally manage this massive global effort.
The primary purpose of the GTPMO is to ensure operational excellence and drive growth for McDonald’s through technology. Our short-term strategy, led by Amy Martin, Senior Director, Global Technology PMO and Office of the CIO, was to establish key c-suite partnerships, providing a strategic and highly visible platform for the PMO to operate, and to manage the global deployment of McDonald’s Mobile Order and Pay solution. This initiative, representing the largest undertaken by McDonald’s, was successfully delivered under budget and ahead of schedule. Success with our short-term strategy, positioned the GTPMO to focus on the long-term strategy of leading an agile transformation while expanding our scope to manage the global deployment of key strategic business priorities outlined in our Velocity Growth Plan including:
As of the end of 2019, the Global Technology PMO has successfully expanded the deployment of Mobile Order & Pay to over 24,000 restaurants globally, Self-Order Kiosks in over 20,000 restaurants and expanded Delivery to over 60% of the global McDonald's system. A combination of these efforts are having a direct and positive impact to McDonald’s growth strategy as demonstrated with our Q4 2019 results. “2019 marked a year of significant milestones for McDonald’s – including surpassing $100 billion in Systemwide sales and achieving our highest global comparable sales growth in over a decade,” said McDonald’s President and Chief Executive Officer Chris Kempczinski. “Through the execution of our Velocity Growth Plan, we once again served more customers the food they crave, marking three consecutive years of global comparable guest count growth.” Our CEO, Chris Kempczinski, sums it up best: “Digital is transforming global retail, and it will transform McDonald’s.”
