“Lift and Shift” vs “Fix and Shift”: Deciphering Which Is More Appropriate in a Large Scale HR Transformation

“Lift and Shift” vs “Fix and Shift”: Deciphering Which Is More Appropriate in a Large Scale HR Transformation

Amber Stephenson, Sr Manager HR Shared Services, Varian Medical Systems presents on: 

Most large scale HR transformations will include the potential for huge wins as well as real failure that could present major setbacks to companies. Often times, a lift and shift approach will provide a safer path to success including the distinct advantage of a shorter transitional timeline and the least amount of disruption on the transformation journey. It also carries the risk of not maximizing the value of the transformation and consolidating imperfect processes into a harder to manage knot for the shared services organization. Shared Services leaders need to be adept at deciphering and negotiating when to take the “easy way out” and deploy the lift and shift approach, when to deploy a fix and shift approach and when only a hybrid of the two will work.
