Welcome to Operating Model Partners. Whether you are starting something new, implementing major change, addressing performance problems or aligning your team to tackle plans, you will find the task much easier with our help and the Operating Model Canvas and its straightforward set of tools at your side.
The Operating Model Canvas tool is about high-level operating models. The tool defines the term operating model as being about processes, organisation, locations, information, suppliers and management systems.
The Operating Model Canvas methodology is in the public domain and can be used freely by all. Yet sometimes the book is not enough and more information, explanations, case studies are needed. We have them in our masterclasses.
Whether you require an independent audit of your current operating model, an advice on operating model project management and governance, or support around design and problem solving leadership, we can help.
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.
If you liked Osterwalder et al.’s Business Model Canvas and Value Proposition Design, you’ll also want to spend time with this one. All three books have a light and engaging tone and are co-created with practitioners. But Operating Model Canvas picks up where the earlier books leave off, taking the thinking about activities, resources, and partners to the next level. It’s critical for making a business model work.
