Innovation is meaningless without implementation.
Change Is Inevitable
Should You Build, Buy or Collaborate?
As talent is scarce, often “build: is not the right answer. Businesses are seeking qualified partners to support them in their evolution. If in the past the list of suitable partners was short and well-defined, today businesses face many more choices than ever before.
Pacemakers was created to professionalise the process through which businesses identify and engage with the best partners to collaborate with or even acquire. We provide our clients with the confidence of knowing that their decisions are well-informed based on high quality ad-hoc research and supported by the experience of real change practitioners.
The Pacemakers 5 Steps
We begin with in-depth interviews with stakeholders to identify the characteristics of the end goal. Understanding our clients’ objectives, circumstances and experience enables us to identify which set of skills are required to deliver the best outcome.
We build a custom taxonomy of the relevant ecosystem based on our clients’ requirements, providing a real whole-of-market perspective when making decisions.
We build a clear evaluation framework that is based on a real understanding of the ecosystem the potential partners’ operates in. This also allows us to evaluate viable alternatives with a whole-of-market perspective.
We provide our clients with detailed profiles of the partners most suited to their need. We then support our clients to engage with the selected partners to select the ideal partner with the awareness that their decision is a whole-of-market perspective.
At the end of the journey, we leverage our personal experience to help our client and the ideal partner they have select build, launch and grow viable, sustainable innovation.
We base our offering on four pillars…
The ideal partner is one that offers the best fit with our clients’ requirements. We use client-specific taxonomies to categorise any digital FS ecosystem, to ensure the selected providers are those with the best possible fit.
Whole of Market view
We evaluate providers of digital solutions worldwide and offer a whole-of-market view of emerging technologies. We know that sometimes the right partner is a start-up, sometimes it’s a global multinational.
Real Track Record
Our team has done it before. We have proven track records in delivering large scale digital transformation. We are not just consultants we have built things. And we have the scars to prove it.
We do not have our own digital solutions to push. Our only objective is to enable our clients to find the best partner for the task at hand. Our arms length approach guarantees our independence.
These are some of the clients we have served in the recent months.
