Business Systems Group (UK) is passionate about being a proactive force for positive change. Our clients have a deep understanding of their organisations’ strategic intentions – their “why”. We have observed that many of these organisations struggle in the gap between intentions and delivery – the how, what, when and who of delivering against strategic ambitions.Addressing this is all about designing practical programmes and projects, which will deliver the “why”. Programmes and projects need to have a clear, strategy aligned, benefits case. Executing change is about working in the detail of these projects to reliably deliver the business needs. It is about acting as the bridge between the business stakeholders and the technology implementation.BSG is a medium-sized, well established business and IT consulting firm with service capability from project inception through to implementation. BSG’s core skill is business analysis – bridging the gap between business and IT stakeholders. This enables BSG Business Analysts to play transformative roles on projects at all stages of the delivery lifecycle.

What our clients are saying
Having BSG show us a range of options alongside our requirements set was a real turning point. This approach allowed us to make an objective assessment of which software best suited our needs.
We have five thousand contact records spread across seven data sources of various sizes. It is essential to the ongoing success of our organisation that we are able to build a single view of our contacts. With BSG’s help, we’ve chosen and deployed a single source to build an enabling platform for our organisation.
BSG delivered a tailored BA skills programme including training and coaching based on sharing their hands-on experience of change projects. After BSG’s BA training programme, I saw that our BAs were trying new tools and techniques in an effort to improve our own ability to deliver change.
I view BSG more as a partner than as consultants. A consultant comes in with a contract and programme, nothing meaty comes out of it. With BSG, they role up their sleeves, become part of the team and uncovered new processes. Not like the other consultants here. The BSG guys are always part of the team, to the extent that I would not call them consultants.
The one thing I love about BSG is that they know our business and it feels as if they have been in the business always.
BSG are industry leaders in terms of their systems development lifecycle knowledge. We collaboratively developed a new methodology which is flexible enough to use across our different IT functions and systems. Stakeholders across the business have reflected that the methodology has improved the quality of the relationship between Business and IT resulting in better specification of requirement and management of expectations.
What we're saying
We speak analyst
To lead the business through change, it is essential to be able to communicate with different stakeholder groups using the right tools and techniques. We believe Business Analysts need to learn to “speak analyst”. Doing this not only helps bridge the gap between the business and IT domains, but also propels us to higher levels of value delivery.
Benefits linked engagements
BSG’s engagement model is outcomes-based, with various tools supporting the scoping, planning, management and delivery of projects. We preserve an execution mindset that focuses on doing what the business needs rather than simply delivering the plan.
BSG UK is part of a global group that operates in Europe & South Africa. This distribution of talent affords us the capacity to deal with a range of business issues through our knowledge management approach which allows us to propagate expertise within our analysts, project managers and change consultants. We also operate a distributed development framework to efficiently deliver technology solutions with our experienced software developers and system architects.
