The journey from strategy to operating success depends on creating an organization that can deliver the chosen strategy. This book, explaining the Operating Model Canvas, shows you how to do this. It teaches you how to define the main work processes, choose an organization structure, develop a high-level blueprint of the IT systems, decide where to locate and how to lay out floor plans, set up relationships with suppliers and design a management system and scorecard with which to run the new organization. The Operating Model Canvas helps you to create a target operating model aligned to your strategy. The book contains more than 20 examples ranging from large multi-nationals to government departments to small charities and from an operating model for a business to an operating model for a department of five people. The book describes more than 15 tools, including new tools such as the value chain map, the organization model and the high-level IT blueprint. Most importantly, the book contains two fully worked examples showing how the tools can be used to develop a new operating model. This book should be on the desk of every consultant, every strategist, every leader of transformation, every functional business partner, every business or enterprise architect, every Lean expert or business improvement champion, in fact everyone who wants to help their organization be successful.

Are you frustrated by... • Explaining and re-explaining what people on your team should do? • Solving problems that others should be able to solve for themselves? • Supervising and micromanaging, rather than strategizing and leading?

It applies the same simple visual tools that made Business Model Generation and Business Model You so popular and successful around the world. In fact, this book may be the last teamwork toolkit you will ever need! Most leaders over-rely on verbal and written communications. But that approach is outmoded in today’s systems-driven world.

Business Operations Models

Becoming a Disruptive Competitor
Author: Alan Braithwaite,Martin Christopher
Publisher: Kogan Page Publishers
ISBN: 0749473320
Category: Business & Economics
Page: 256
View: 1044
Most successful companies have operations management at their heart. It should enable strategy and should be part of boardroom discussions. However, Cranfield research has shown that business strategy barely recognises the world of operations management. Recognising that operations management needs to be more strategic, Business Operations Models is a revolutionary new title that looks at the interrelationship of operations management and strategy. In Business Operations Models, Martin Christopher and Alan Braithwaite identify the characteristics of market-leading businesses that have transformed their markets and delivered super performance for their stakeholders. It points to the theory gap between strategic thinking and operations and how many high-performing businesses arrive at their new operating models as much by chance as judgement. Unpacking those observations leads to some clearly defined features of winning competitors, including eliminating waste, leveraging technology, and utilising transformative business models. Business Operations Models offers a framework for achieving super performance and understanding when and how a company may be able to leverage its capabilities to outperform. The book provides detailed international case studies that illustrate how the principles work in practice, including Apple, Dell, Amazon, John Lewis, Southwest airlines, Aldi, Toyota and many others.

In politics, business and society, 'better' leadership and dialogue are seen as antidotes to the paradoxical issues of the modern world.

Digital Transformation

Build Your Organization's Future for the Innovation Age
Author: Lindsay Herbert
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
ISBN: 1472940385
Category: Business & Economics
Page: 264
View: 528
One book for the entire journey: How to digitally transform your organization Innovation in the face of major external change is critical for any organization's success, but attempting to do so often leads to more questions than actions: Where do you start? How do you get the right resources? How should work be implemented? What data should you measure? For the first time, these questions are answered in a single book that covers the end-to-end execution of digital transformation – from leadership-level strategy, to on-the-ground team implementation. With the biggest revelation of all, Herbert argues, being that true digital transformation only needs to happen once because, at its core, it means becoming more adaptive to change itself. Featuring the 'how to' of digital transformation devised from successes across every sector, Herbert distils it into five actionable stages. These stages act as a repeatable framework for continual innovation, allowing you to produce results immediately and grow change incrementally across your organization. In Digital Transformation, Herbert draws on her own experiences in leading change and innovation programmes globally, as well as featuring insights from experts and leaders from organizations as diverse as the World Wildlife Fund, Morgan Stanley, Royal Caribbean Cruises, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, the Rijksmuseum, the American Cancer Society, The Guardian, Harvard University, and many others.

It offers a simplistic version of any organization, which includes a number of processes that every organization can think of to systematically enhance its Service.
