Update for participants before 6-7 September:
I hope that you have now taken time to reflect on our first two days together – and to think in more depth about your future direction for growth, how you will innovate driven by a deeper understanding of your customers. In particular, we explored the possibilities that new business models offer in terms of new ways of working, new ways of standing out, and new ways of making money.
When me meet again on 6-7 September in Hamburg, the focus will be on “making it happen”. Therefore it would be very useful to spend some time over the coming months testing and shaping your ideas further … to explore them with customers, and get engagement from internal stakeholders. In particular I would encourage you to think about:
1. Where are my best opportunities for future growth? Remember the strategy framework, and making choices about “why, where and how” to compete. For your existing or new business, where are the priorities?
You might also get inspiration from this article … “A Playbook for Strategy” (AG Lafley, former P&G CEO, defines 5 essential questions for strategy):
2. What do my target customers really want? Remember to use the ideas of design thinking – go and talk to them, observe what they do, ask the “5 Whys” about their world, and then develop a value proposition around their pains and gains.
You might also get inspiration from this article …”Future 100 Trends and Changes to Watch in 2017″ (ideas and inspirations from around the world):
3. How could I innovate my business model? Remember that the business model canvas starts with the customer, then the proposition. Explore new channels to market, new support and services, new business partners, and new ways of making money.
You might also get inspiration from this article … “St Gallen Business Model Navigator” (a reflection on business models, and the different types):
Bring your “improved” answers to these questions with you on the 6 September, and they will be the starting points to explore further – how to make them happen, what drives change in organisations, and how to be the most effective leader.
