We helped Shell advance their digital transformation without the cost and risk of third-party contractors and systems integrators. They utilized Kubrick to bridge their widening skills gap, build their future workforce, and retain IP.
How we impacted Shell’s capabilities for the long-term
Shell utilized Kubrick to embed next-generation technologies for cost-effective and low-risk augmentation of their teams and capabilities.
Amidst a largescale transformation, Shell were reliant upon third party contingent labour and systems integrators, posing a threatening risk profile to their IP and future capabilities. However, they lacked the bandwidth to hire and train their own data professionals in order to keep up with their expanding portfolio of technologies and solutions. They needed access to a large volume of highly skilled consultants to deploy across their departments to embed, retain IP, and stay ahead of the curve.
Kubrick consultants embedded in teams across Shell to support in extensive organizational transformation. During the course of their 2-year development period, our consultants exercised their technical and business training to deliver powerful solutions and bespoke products. Shell chose to retain all of their Kubrick consultants as FTE employees in order to maximize their impact; they retained the expertise, experience, and IP of their consultants, futureproofing their capabilities.
Our smart, driven consultants were equipped to deliver results in the wide variety of areas in which Shell were transforming, from implementing and fixing fundamental IT solutions across the organisation, to providing data-driven products for innovation in maritime, green energy, and trading. By utilizing Kubrick consultants, Shell made an initial saving cost of 42% over the use of traditional contractors and consultancies, with the risk of potential future costs, such as losing IP to competitors or hiring, training, and onboarding permanent staff, removed entirely.
