Workshop: Strategic Thinking and Business Model Canvas

Innovation doesn’t have to be a mystical outcome from creative geniuses. It can be driven by lean thinking, strategy, and problem-solving. In this workshop and session, we will explore the Business Model Canvas as a tool to shape strategy and strategic thinking. We will further explore strategic pivots, understand those pivots on the Strategic Gaps Map, and how it drives the opportunity for innovation. And finally, how we convert those gaps into action plans that drive purposeful, problem-driven innovation.

Lean Project Management

In his very practical way, Norbert describes the theory’s that make Lean Driven Project Management increase delivery, speed, and agility of all kinds of projects, and it helps motivate and engage people. Although the chief engineer (or project manager) and matrix organizations are staples of a lean organization, few companies have taken advantage of other lean principles and tools when managing their projects. At Goodyear and as described in the book Lean-Driven Innovation, lean thinking combined with a solid project management organization has led to large increases in on-time delivery, speed, and agility. Projects meet their business case (profitable products) and resource utilization has been tripled despite a flat budget.

Strategic Thinking and Business Model Canvas

Innovation is often started at the wrong end: the effort to create something new. But it should be driven from need. What problem are we trying to solve? Innovation is fundamentally the effort to solve a problem in a unique or creative way, more effectively than previous solutions. This applies to both customer problems and internal problems.

Workshop: Strategic thinking and business model canvas

Innovation doesn’t have to be a mystical outcome from creative geniuses. It can be driven by lean thinking, strategy, and problem-solving. In this workshop and session, we will explore the Business Model Canvas as a tool to shape strategy and strategic thinking. We will further explore strategic pivots, understand those pivots on the Strategic Gaps Map, and how it drives the opportunity for innovation. And finally, how we convert those gaps into action plans that drive purposeful, problem-driven innovation.

Innovation is often started at the wrong end: the effort to create something new. But it should be driven from need. What problem are we trying to solve? Innovation is fundamentally the effort to solve a problem in a unique or creative way, more effectively than previous solutions. This applies to both customer problems and internal problems.

But what makes problem-driven innovation strategic? It comes from a comprehensive view of your business model, where you are trying to go, and what gaps exist to achieve the strategy. The Business Model Canvas is a tool to understand your business model, and your strategy, at a systems-level. This will help you understand your strategic gaps, or problems, that will inform and guide that innovation effort.

In this workshop and session, we will cover the Business Model Canvas, both as a tool and a thought process. We will explore strategic pivots and understand how that will drive the need for innovation. Strategic gaps will be mapped using a tool to shape what type of gap is found, and how to approach closing each type of gap on the Strategic Gap Map. Those will then drive action, be it through A3-driven problem solving or other mechanisms.
