Operating Model Alignment
Focus. Align. Implement.
Consciously design and reassess your operating model when introducing change. Your operating model is the backbone that enables your organization to generate client value—and it requires consistent assessment to remain optimal.
Organizations typically review their operating model reactively, in response to a systemic performance issue in cost, quality, control or more. But it’s essential that you also address your operating model proactively: it should always be redesigned during the introduction of new or enhanced business capabilities.
Align Your Operating Model
It’s imperative to your business performance that your operating model evolves to stay aligned with your current strategy.
Assess All Components
Your operating model has seven core, interdependent components: business capabilities, process, technology, geographical presence, organizational structure, people, and work environment.
Have a Target State
Develop a clear set of target operating model principles. These will guide you in making informed design decisions and modifications in the future.
Design at All Levels
Your operating model exists at enterprise, function, and team levels. Depending on the change your company is introducing, your operating model might need modifications at all or some of these levels.
