Industrial connectivity. Internet of Things. Sensors. Smart exit signs and more. All these products give unparalleled data about business assets.
It’s not enough to use this for operational improvement alone. In a competitive marketplace, asset-intensive organisations need to turn data into a competitive advantage.
But how do you do this? Where do you start? What is possible? Those are the questions we help you answer in an Operations Innovation Workshop. Through two half-day workshops, we get key people in a room, work through ideas and help you make a plan.
This isn’t just talking. It’s about finding practical ways to get more value from your data. Things like:
You finish the workshop with a clear set of prioritised, worked-through ideas – and the foundations of a business case.
At the end of the process, you have a business model fleshed out, agreed upon and ready for more detailed development.
We work out who will be there and what you’ll discuss.
This delivers a high-level assessment of your current capabilities – along with an aligned view of which service will deliver the most impact. Finally, we agree a workshop format.
The first half-day workshop is all about thinking about the future – and thinking big.
We help your team work through guided exercises to paint a picture of your company’s context, present and future.
Then we help you build empathy with your stakeholders and visualise your customer journey. We finish off with an agreed-upon vision of what the future could look like.
This is where we help you turn the big-picture ideas from the first session into a concrete business proposition. We look at your capabilities and how to apply them, analyse your value chain, then start making tough tradeoffs in an importance/difficulty matrix.
At the end, we turn all the decisions we made into a business model - ready for more detailed analysis and progression.
