Many people are going to find the insights in this book really valuable. Whether you are new to the topic or a seasoned practitioner, the book offers plenty to help you on your operating model journey: a clear framework for thinking about operating models, a basket of tools, and copious examples ranging from Zara to Snapfish and from a government department to an IT function. There are alternative ways to approach the concept of operating models, but I can highly recommend the approach in this book. It is easy to read, practically relevant, and touches upon all the important aspects.

I have led many change and transformation projects that supported an overall business strategy. These are always diffcult projects both in the design and the execution. Operating Model Canvas is a useful and pragmatic aid to this work, full of tools and examples and helpful ways of simplifying complexity. It provides a framework to consider the change elements holistically, giving you the opportunity to create an implementation plan that will more likely be successful.
