Dear all,

The ongoing disruption caused – not only – by the pandemic is increasing pressure on many businesses. Re-organisations and even layoffs are the consequence.

In this context it is important to understand and demonstrate how your particular department or team delivers value to the overall organisation (and ideally its customers) and how these benefits can be increased even further – while potentially reducing applied resources and cost.

Working with departments on their practical strategies and OKRs, we find the Business Model Canvas to be a really useful tool for this. Normally used for the development of startups, it also provides us with all the elements to understand and re-focus a department’s „value delivery model“ and derive immediately adressable initiatives from this analysis.

Here are three links to the BMC and how to use it for teams:

I planned to have a quiet weekend doing some gardening. Won’t happen: just got informed that we need to take an organization redesign that we planned as in-person workshop (with masks and other precautions!) for next week online. The result of increasing infection rates. Back to the (Miro-) drawing board!

Stay safe and have a great weekend!
