SYMPTOMS OF A MIS-ALIGNED TARGET OPERATING MODEL

Many organisations fail to set themselves up for success by not creating the right conditions to deliver their strategic ambitions.

Slow to deliver on strategic initiatives

Inefficient use of business resources

Overly focused on day-to-day activities

BENEFITS THAT THE RIGHT TARGET OPERATING MODEL UNLOCKS

Accelerated Growth

By designing the organisation to fit the strategy, strategic priorities become the focus of day-to-day operations rather than bolt-on tasks, leading to fewer distractions and faster delivery.

Enhanced Efficiency

By identifying processes or structures that are non-optimal, barriers to strategic progress can be removed and the business can spend more of its resources on the things that truly matter.

Increased Agility

Allows a swifter response to market changes, customer demands, and emerging technologies and a greater focus on innovation vs. day-to-day administrative complexities.

Empowered Teams

Employees are empowered to make decisions within their scope leading to higher engagement & job satisfaction and teams are able to collaborate efficiently without unnecessary barriers.
