This three-day program, run in conjunction with PA Consulting, gives you the tools to transform your business through higher margins, increased sales, or both.
An operating model is the operational design that makes it possible to deliver the business strategy. Operational design follows strategy, but the relationship also works the other way around, which means that ideas for operating model improvements can lead to changes in business strategy. This program is about the intersection of business strategy and operational design, for an organization as a whole, a business unit or a function.
The operating model defines how the organization will deliver the capabilities and financial outcomes required by the strategy. An operating model covers six elements making up the acronym POLISM:
Each element of the operating model needs to be designed to contribute to the success of the organization, and will have an impact on both the income statement and the balance sheet. This program will introduce tools and frameworks that help participants understand, communicate and challenge the existing operating model as well as challenge the status quo and design a target operating model. The Operating Model Canvas is the core framework.
One of the features of the program is a day-long case study during which participants use the tools they have learnt to build an operating model, led by the executive in charge of the organisation. Learning continues after the program through a blog www.ashridgeonoperatingmodels.com, a Twitter feed (@operatingmodels) and a LinkedIn Group “Operating Models”.
The program attracts managers from Strategy, Finance, HR, Transformation, Business Improvement, Lean, IT and Operations functions. It is relevant for any manager looking to improve performance by aligning strategy and operations. Participants on the last two programs rated the value to them as individuals at 9.1 and 9.4 out of a possible 10. The net promoter scores were 78% and 91%.
