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.
Operating Model Canvas is both simple and powerful. It provides a simple framework (the Canvas) and some powerful tools (value chain map, organization model, supplier matrix, etc.). I cannot imagine anyone involved in working on organization design or operating models or even process improvement that will not gain a great deal from this easy to read and engaging book.
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.
