Helping TMF transform for the digital age
TMF Group is the global expert in local business. With a network of offices across over 80 countries, TMF Group has the in-country expertise and knowledge to help businesses (of all sizes) expand and operate both within and beyond their home markets.
Recognising the need to change to stay competitive, TMF Group were looking to seize the opportunity and transform their business for the digital age.
As part of this they knew they needed to modernise their IT infrastructure, freeing them from legacy technology and cutting costs, to allow them to reinvest in an ambitious growth programme to meet their 2020 objectives.
Our team then guided TMF through our Transformation Planning process, uncovering the needs of the business, the clients and the market trends. We consulted with senior leaders globally, drawing out their goals, needs and challenges. We mapped their technical architecture to work out how to drive savings whilst also enabling innovation. We then analysed their current IT strategy and in-flight programmes in order to position the company for success.
The outcome revealed three priority focuses:
• improving mergers and acquisition integration
• enabling rapid product development
• reducing IT spend whilst making the customer and employee experience better
Our team then worked collaboratively with the business and IT, sponsored at C-suite level, to deliver these outcomes.

Rainmaker kicked-off by running a three-month discovery exercise to help clarify the Council’s vision and translate it into a delivery model, validated by user research, that leveraged market opportunities, as well as accommodating the risks involved.
In week one, we completed an audit of existing Discovery work. We agreed governance, confirmed working practices, built out a skeleton of the final deliverables and baselined a plan to make it happen.
