Let's put the "how" in transformation.
Your operating model portrays how the essential components of your business—including people, structure, processes, governance, and technology and data—come together to make change happen. It connects strategy to execution by detailing how the transformation will be realized, and makes a point to uncover how the different components interact and intersect. Part of the operating model, your organizational strategy outlines specific roles, skillsets, and team configurations. It plays a critical role in your transformation by formally aligning the workforce and its responsibilities to your strategy.
Here's our take: Changes to people, structure, processes, governance, and technology and data all stem from decisions about the operating model and organizational strategy. By approaching every element of the operating model with a comprehensive, value-oriented mindset, you'll maximize outcomes and strengthen your muscle to adapt in a world of accelerated change.
Powered by design thinking, change management, and culture management.
Your operating model and organizational structure function as your business's prescribed guardrails.
