I offer three core services to help you transform your business
- Strategy Stress Test
- Opportunity and Growth Modelling
- Transformational Skunkworks
Strategy Stress Test
The Strategy Stress Test is a two day face to face workshop. During the workshop we rigorously test your business model to identify and clarify strategic weaknesses and opportunities.
Included as part of the workshop is detailed competitive analysis of your business versus both key competitors business models and existing and emergent threats. At the end of the workshop the business will be in position to consider its future options in a realistic manner based on detailed analysis
Most businesses then take this baseline position and look for opportunities for significant growth and transformation in our Opportunity and Growth Modelling service
Opportunity and Growth Modelling
The Opportunity and Growth Modelling leads directly on from the Strategy Stress Test. Keeping the same business model as the environment changes is a recipe for stagnation and decline.
In this package of work I look for and identify a number of new business models that your business can transform into. This gives you a clear strategic choice for you next step. Do we keep the company as it is, or do we change? If we change what sort of business should we change into?
This work allows you to explicitly address these options and make decisions rather than making a decision by inertia or inattention. For some businesses the next stage is the Transformational Skunkworks which is the next step in transforming their business model.
The Transformational Skunkworks takes one or more of the business model opportunities developed in the Opportunity and Growth Modelling stage and turns it into a viable high growth business. Or kills it quickly
A skunkworks is a part of the business that is deliberately tasked to experiment and create new value. It is protected from existing silos and politics by being largely autonomous.
We use a tried and tested lean model that is evidence based to quickly test business model and achieve product market fit. Using a highly entrepreneurial approach we are able to move far faster than is possible for most businesses. At the same time your businesses existing domain knowledge, and resources increase success rates far above those for traditional entrepreneurial businesses
