Digital workplace transformation

Oil & Gas



No. Of Employees



One of the world’s seven oil and gas “supermajors”. It is a vertically integrated company operating in all areas of the oil and gas industry, including exploration and production, refining, distribution and marketing, petrochemicals, power generation and trading. It also has renewable energy interests in biofuels, wind power and solar technology.

The Challenge

The business understood the benefits of transitioning to agile ways of working, Agile allows teams to play to their strengths and identify opportunities for development and improvement. Agile businesses leverage their talent and create teams that perform at their best. When companies are as large as the clients, they often struggle with Agile development because it requires a large cultural shift.

Chaucer have a longstanding relationship with this Oil & Gas major and have several active projects. This gives us a deep understanding of the client’s ways of working putting us in the optimum position to help position the client for success and transition to Agile ways of working.

The Solution

Chaucer worked closely with leadership teams to develop and deploy a strong workplace transformation strategy & program. We looked at: Culture, Change & Engagement, executive mindset coaching, transformation road mapping, developing training materials and aligning stakeholder vision to governance of day-to-day Agile processes.

We understood the need for leadership teams to be driving the change as teams tend to learn by example. We ensured this cooperation and collaboration by bringing their two-year vision to life in Agile practices.

We ensured that the workplace transformation project was not siloed to one department, we ensured that Procurement & Finance organisations were brought along on the journey through Vision development, Road mapping and Storytelling.

We clearly demonstrated that Agile processes can work together with traditional Waterfall planning and Investment management processes.

The Results

We created an enormous wealth of training material that ensured the ongoing development of agile workplaces within the organisation and saw success across non-traditional areas such as SAP, Procurement and Finance.
