Operational Design & Change
Our offering Operational Design & Change addresses the various needs that arise when corporations want to make extensive changes to achieve significant impact. The most common situations are re-organizations, mergers & acquisitions, business transformations, or setting up a new operation through carve-out or a new market entry.
Have room to maneuver
These initiatives all have their own pre-requisites and objectives, and each case is unique. One thing they have in common is the extensive associated change effort, which is often underestimated. Our experience from multiple operational changes has taught us that it is impossible to foresee and plan for all events in advance. Instead, we have learnt to keep some flexibility and room to maneuver between changes in scope and objectives, new restrictions from external factors, and of course just plain problems and crisis.
Not the same as agile
To a large extent this approach resembles an agile way of working with IT Development, with the difference that extensive business change efforts are usually difficult to divide up in MVP:s and features. It is often more of a “all or nothing” situation where the value is realized first when all pieces are in place.
