Business Model Design: Turning sellable products into successful businesses

  • Workshop programmes to improve business models
  • Testing programmes to reduce risk and costs
  • Innovate to win
  • Get clarity and consistency across the mgmt. team

    Your business has great people, good products, you look after your customers, yet your competitors consistently make more profits than you and continue to out complete you. They seem to have a clearer more consistent approach and resulting in better performance.

    Or it may be that your competitors are doing some things a little different from you. Perhaps they have made some changes to their business model from the “traditional” way of doing things and these changes are giving them the edge.

    Or you maybe the market leader, and your competitors are gaining ground quickly and you are looking to increase your innovation to stay ahead.

    If you want small improvements, then evolve your current business practices. Get more effective and efficient at what you currently do. These small improvements can add up.

    If you want a step change in your business performance, then look to improve your business model and strategy. If you are not looking to step your performance, your competitors will be. Can you afford to fall behind?

    Workshops to drive innovation

    Creating a common language and then organising a process to harness the team’s ideas, debate and challenge these ideas and then select the best ones takes time, particularly if you have not gone through this process regularly.

    Take away the time and effort of learning as you go. Let us organise the workshops and use our experience and skills to get the most from your team.

    Test before implementing

    Even with the best people in the room, designing a business model on paper and then implementing without testing is a high risk and potentially costly approach. There are many start-ups through to global corporates that implemented without enough testing and at least 7 out of 10 are no longer with us.

    We help you set up the testing programme and evaluate the results. Use the results to further refine your business model.
