The Big Idea

As a young company and technology leader in its field, the company had experienced double-digit growth for the last 15 years. Every year it became more difficult to scale the operational structures, due to the lack of end-to-end value chain design, leading to missed customer expectations, inefficient execution and teams being busy with firefighting.

Blueprint and Roadmap

Embed an operational excellence model in the Operations part of the business in order to connect strategy with execution. The vision is to create a self-sustaining system and philosophy of performance improvement. The overall blueprint (“Business Operating System”) and the Initiative roadmap are the key reference points to balance priorities with available team capacity.
